Song of the Day - Day 571

Today's song is...

Lines Upon A Tranquil Brow

I love the drama with which this is performed. The dramatic reading at the beginning is such a ridiculous contrast to the screaming. I have a few live recordings of the song and I think the audience has the same reaction I do every time. Laughing and whooping at the screaming and the squirrels and then bopping to the catchy melody that follows. I would also suggest, that this is exactly the sort of melody the accordion was designed for.
