Some are more serious than others.  Track 7 is a "break-in" record; Track 24 is a real psychedelic trip; and Track 27 is a wonder-whiz of musical portmanteau-ism, packing musical references to Wagner, Berlioz, and Mendelsohn into its brief sixty seconds.  

See you back here on Thursday, for our next installment of the Musical Month of May!  You spy mavens won't want to miss it!
