- An English Country Garden.
- Gilbert and Sullivan. Tit-willow, tit=willow, tit-willow - what does that mean?
- Anything played on the pipes of Pan.
- Mozart. Respect - really - but, apart from a few songs, I can't stand his music.
Not sure that it's demented? Just listen to it. Even Nana Mouskouri can't make it bearable. It's a traditional song that used to be learned by every English schoolchild and perhaps still is. I learned it at boarding school in Rhodesia (demented enough then, infinitely more demented now as Zimbabwe).
(The Mikado is another legacy from my Rhodesian boarding school.)
It's like nails being cheerily hammered into your head. I'd rather be a hammer than a nail... Aaaaaaargh!
