The first part of the video (my signature slide) is overlaid by the final bars of "Marcha Real", which I played on my keyboard.

The main part of the song is one of Tom Lehrer's studio solo songs, "The Masochism Tango". It is part of Tom's second published album, "More of Tom Lehrer". But I obtained the actual music from the box set, "The Remains of Tom Lehrer", which was released in 2000. Enjoy.

And the last part is the main theme of "The Phantom of the Opera", by Andrew Lloyd Webber. Simply the 'cherry on top', and my personal song.

Here's the description Tom Lehrer himself made about the two love songs in this album: ""She's My Girl" and "The Masochism Tango" illustrate two archetypes of the love song."

Sorry I gave so much information about the music earlier. I don't want to get screwed by stupid WMG again. They are a bunch of arse-holes. And to make sure I am not screwed, have them read the following credits:
