the ballad of the eire canal

Almost 15 years ago I wrote a silly song based on a typo, about the 19th century’s greatest nonexistent feat of engineering, the transatlantic canal between the United States and Ireland. Many years later, Jacob Haller arranged and sang an a capella version of my lyrics, and now, through the magic of the interweb, you can hear a fully realized version of the song by the all-mollusk* band El Submarinium. Check out the Ballad of the Eire Canal on their myspace page! (Their other songs ain’t bad either.)

* the band may actually contain some vertebrates
