Michael Chapman: Fully Qualified Survivor (even better) (not the guy who produced The Sweet, BTW)

Kuhlau: Three Virtuoso Duets for Two Flutes, Op. 102/Divertisements Op. 68 Nos. 1-2 (Laurel Zucker/Renee Siebert) (maybe someone can explain why the cover of this recording of music by a German who moved to Copenhagen in the early 19th Century and became the father of Danish classical music features a watercolor of Brasserie Lipp)

The Voice is to blame. More Miley Cyrus covers on YouTube. This time around, I found a duet with Joan Jett which features a chunk of "Cherry Bomb," and a hilarious (and profane) cover of "A Boy Named Sue."

"A Boy Named Sue" was written by Shel Silverstein, reputedly as a jibe on his friend Jean Shepherd, who often complained that people thought he was a girl because of his first name being spelled Jean. He claimed his mother wanted a girl so named him Jean.


Miley is short for "Smiley," a childhood nickname.
