Satire in Song

Daniel was quite the officianado of catchy tunes, bright lyrics and often satire in song. He had all his own satiric words to many of the most common and annoying commercials and we enjoyed hearing his songs. He also enjoyed the work of Weird Al Yankovic, although I don't think he quite believed me when I told him that Weird Al had been a performing guest at my college when I had been a student. Daniel and I also often wrote our own songs as if for commercials for products we liked, or thought should be lampooned.
For this reason, he would really enjoy the work of Andrew and Julia. Their viral You Tube hit, " Canadian,Please" is below. One of Andrew's jobs is as a music teacher at Yamaha and the second video is of children from Andrew's class, singing and dancing to "Canadian Please". Daniel would have found this very amusing, especially as people with ties to Canada.
