Heartwarming / Tom Lehrer

Go To

  • The song he wrote for The Electric Company (1971), "N'T" has the singer trying to get a grouch to come out of his shell and play. In the end, he succeeds. While a fan may expect a bit of sarcasm from Lehrer, he sounds sincere and supportive the entire song towards his opposite. (Also played by him.)
  • It's kind of cute that when he comes back out to take a bow after his filmed appearance in Oslo, Norway, he only gives a shy little nod. He almost seems surprised that people would applaud his darkly comic songs. It's also gratifying - the audience was pretty cautious throughout the recording, so it must've come as a surprise to Tom that they actually appreciated his performance.


How well does it match the trope?
