About this course:

Explore the world of musical satire through many genres, cultures and eras, especially America since 1950. We cover rock, musical theater, opera, TV, movies, Horace and Juvenal, "Yankee Doodle," slave satire, Gilbert & Sullivan, the Gershwins, the Beatles, Randy Newman, Monty Python, Spinal Tap, South Park, and Saturday Night Live. And of course Tom Lehrer, who once said "If, after hearing my songs, just one human being is inspired to say something nasty to a friend, or perhaps to strike a loved one, it will all have been worthwhile."
