I liked this song much better than any of the other music they played before, which didn't really suit the mood of the ceremony in my opinion. Right around the middle though all of a sudden the MSNBC feed started cutting off which was a pity as it was a really pleasant surprise to hear in the midst of everything else.

We just recently started watching old Seinfeld episodes again though and the first thing I thought when I heard the name Yo Yo Ma was Kramer getting kicked in the side of the head.
