Oh no Oboe

I think this song is what springtime would sound like if it could be written on a staff. I half expect Israel Kamakawiwo'ole (I had to look that up) to chirp in and start singing some classic cover from the Great American Songbook. But he doesn't, and that's cool, because I like where it goes. Penguin Cafe Orchestra is about the sweetest thing you could call your band. I get images of penguins running around with towels over their arms (some wearing tuxedos) serving other penguins sipping cappuccinos and discussing South African politics, all to the background of this music. What a lovely bunch of penguins.

(listen to the first option)
