Satire is one of the oldest forms of humor and adding music only seems to make it more powerful; in early Germanic and Celtic societies, people mocked in song would break out in boils and even commit suicide. Join comedy writer and producer David Misch (“Mork and Mindy,” “Saturday Night Live,” “The Muppets Take Manhattan,” “Funny: The Book”) as he shares his picks for the best satirical songs in history, 15 tunes mocking not just people but racism, war, sexism, inequality and more, featuring Randy Newman, Weird Al Yankovic, Gilbert & Sullivan, Steve Martin, Amy Schumer, Chuck Berry, “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend,” Groucho Marx, Spinal Tap, “South Park” and Bugs Bunny.
