They're Singing Scalia's Song

And what is it? Well. After a night at the opera, reported here in the NYTimes, Scalia, once reluctant to give any interviews, gave one to WQXR, the NYC classical music station. As reported by the on Friday, Scalia, in a far-ranging discussion with Gilbert Kaplan, told all - his favorite rock and roll song is Sh-Boom, a 1954 classic from the Chords. His comment about Sh-Boom? Another classic. Apparently, it was the last pop piece, "that I really remember liking before rock descended into noise and ugliness." See for's an acapella version from a 1980 show.
