A 3-minute Hamlet

Hmm, I know that last post was way too long for blog guidelines. I offer as an alternative The Three-Minute Hamlet, sung to the tune of The Mason's Apron. Here's a free mp3 of the song from John Wesley Harding. It's not my favorite recording, for one thing it's too slow and takes more than four minutes, but it's legal. For a picture of Hamlet, see right.

I was searching for info on the 3-Minute Hamlet and found this--thanks for the link. Also, for anyone else who finds this, I just wanted to point out that if you use Windows Media Player and cranked up the speed to 1.3 or 1.4, it creates a frenzied effect similar to the original 3-Minute Hamlet.

Thank you for posting this! I just saw him last night in Kalamazoo and he played this tune. I searched for it on iTunes all for naught. Thanks again!
