Thinking of Noah's biblical tale also puts me in mind of the shiny-toothed offerings of the New Main Street Singers from Christopher Guest's fond folk mockumentary, A Mighty Wind. Here they are summarising the tale of the Ark in a few pithy verses for your edification, in The Good Book Song, with Terry Bohner (John Michael Higgins) on ever-so-wholesome lead vocals:
In the film Terry explains his journey into folk by pointing out that 'there had been abuse in my family, but it was mostly musical in nature'; while his wife Laurie (Jane Lynch) sets out her character's stall with her brilliant comic prowess ('And I learned to play the ukulele in one of my last films, Not So Tiny Tim'). Her timing is - as ever - impeccable.
