If last week's featured song was reminiscent of Timbuk3 and The Cars, this week's offering reminds me of Don McLean's "American Pie" or Meatloaf's "Paradise by the Dashboard Light" trilogy. That's right -- it's a ballad, and it's long! It's by Dr. Chordate, a.k.a. Jeff Moran, who really is a doctor (of the Ph.D. variety).
To hear this newly recorded song -- all 8 minutes and 58 seconds of it -- go to www.myspace.com/drchordate and click on "Biochemistry Operetta."
