Spinal Tap A to Zed

Heavy Duty: Based on a song written for Lenny and the Squigtones, this Tap hit appeared on their 1976 album, "Bent for the Rent." The song was rereleased on the 1984 soundtrack album about the same time that Judas Priest released a tune by the same name on "Defenders of the Faith." The closing classical riff, borrowed from Luigi Boccherini, was Nigel’s "tribute to the classical masters of bygone eras, of old dead people wearing wigs." (HS) See also Classical Music.
