Music to slip into a playlist to see if anybody is listening

When I was visiting my brother earlier this year, I found this CD in my sister-in-law's collection. Oy vey's mir! There's just something fundamentally wacked out about the whole idea. (Maybe that's why I liked it. Here's what other people think.)

    "Oy vey’s mir"

    Should be "Oy Vey Zmir" – Hebrew is אוי ויי זמיר, not sure about exact latin translitarion.

    Myself, I found I can go a long way with the musical diversity till I get to put the Outthere Brothers’ "I Want to Fuck You in the Ass"… and even then, some people wouldn’t notice the lyrics.

  9. How about <a href="">Oy To The World</a>? It’s an awesome album. :)

  10. Aww, not even simple HTML?? :p

    For the HTML illiterate among you, that link should be
