Known to millions as the voice of Montgomery Burns, Shearer uses a similar voice to great effect on the new album's title track. He sings: "Gather round children / Sit right here /Gonna tell you a story about what we see / A little bit greed, a little bit fear / How it tastes all depends on the recipe." (You can hear samples from the album on Amazon.com)

This isn't Harry's first foray into musical comedy. In fact he's won a Grammy for three years in a row (2008, 2009, and 2010) for his work on Songs Pointed and Pointless, Songs of the Bushmen, and Back from the Dead (with Spinal Tap).
