1: You’ve all heard this Rumsfeld quote: “There are known knowns….” Here it’s sung by a goaty soprano paired with a driving piano. Jittery piano. Sounds like Kurt Weill.
2: Rumsfeld remembers his youth. Stormy Ravel-esque piano, lots of tempo variations, strong yet plaintive vocals, elegiac ending.
3: Rumsfeld is disoriented. Creeping eerie melody. Low piano. Simple.
4: Rumsfeld talks about things that have, will, didn’t, or may happen. Driving, richly textured piano, rhythmic emotional vocals. Sounds like Sondheim.
5: Rumsfeld meditates on the capabilities of the trained ape. Italian operetta-style piano. Musically humorous. Big chord at the end.
6: Rumsfeld argues that a discontinuity is not the same as a pause. Fast ominous Schubert piano. Vocal arpeggios.
7: Rumsfeld assures the DoD that all will be known. Satie piano. Calm, hymnic.
Thus ends Rumsfeld.
8: Light, syncopated vocals describe the consequences of excessive personal attractiveness. Playful and cute-like Villalobos with cheese on top.
9: Rhythmic, dissonant traditional cabaret. Singer stays in low register (thankfully). “Death comes pimping.”
10: Spiritual. The singer’s careful inflection and intonation make her sound like a female Paul Robeson-a good thing. Supporting piano.
11: Madame Butterfly meets M. Butterfly. More standard cabaret.
12: Froggy piano, soaring melodic vocals, acknowledgely awful lyrics about…frogs.
13: Jazzy piano, awful high vocals.
14: Dissonant distortion of the Brahms lullaby tune. Goaty vocals. A lullaby to induce nightmares.
15: Stormy piano, lots of tempo variation.
16: Jazzy dancing piano. Pleasing vocals stay in low register.
17: Debussy piano with lots of arpeggios. Rather lovely vocals.
18: Piano style is quiet and otherworldly with melodramatic outbursts. Skillful vocals. Musically funny.
19: Serene pastoral feel.
20: Stormy, rhythmic piano, duchess-like vocals. Mommy dearest makes her second appearance.
