For no reason at all, here's a selection of links to Tom Lehrer related material:

Interview with Paul Lehrman 1997

Interview in the SF Weekly 2000 - Page 2 seems to missing, and the piece takes an inordinately long time to stop talking about Greg Proops

Interview in the Onion AV Club 2000

Interview in the Sydney Morning Herald 2003 Hopefully to access the article you won't be required to provide photo ID and have your hard-drive engorged with cookies

Entry in St. James Encyclopedia of Pop Culture

Entry in Wikipedia I wonder how long this bit will survive community editing:

Fans of rapper Eminem have also noted some similarities in Em's style to that of Lehrer. The style comparison is best evidenced on Em's South Park parody "The Kids" with its piano backing, clever use of syntax and off-beat rhyming, and even references to torturing small animals similar to that of Lehrer's notorious "Poisoning Pigeons In The Park".
Heh

Flash Animation of Lehrer's Song "The Elements"

Site about Tomfoolery, the 1980 revue based on Lehrer's work
