    everyone's enthusiasm... but I have to say (and it makes me sad) that I listened closely to the version Chuck played, and I'm quite sure it was from the original cast recording.  Yes, the song's taken on a new life with two fantastic parodies... but he wasn't playing one of those.

    Sorry.  Please don't yell at me.

    But like I said -- I'm reccing this because I love the video (and the original 2008 version), and because everyone's so happy.  :)

      Chuck would rather go to Fox than admit to any lean to Obama.  He played the original song.

      and I have to say that the people pointing out my mistake (and it was a mistake) have mostly been very kind.

        as the knock-offs.  At first I was astounded, too.  But I deliberately listened very carefully to see if it contained the altered lyrics, because it was impossible to me that Todd would do that...  Still, I think it was positive that he played it at all, considering what it's come to be identified with.

        And no need to apologize.  (As opposed to the unkind on this site who seem to live to smack people down needlessly.)
