A Federal Judge

I got this .mp3 file in my e-mail.  While none of the Judges I have met are accurately portrayed by this song, there is still a certain appeal to this satirical offering.

Note:  This file is very large (2664 KB)(2.6 MB) (running time is 2:50) and will take some time to load on a 56K modem . . . broadband connection is highly recommended, as is one of the media players below.

{Note:  There must be a copyright owner . . . if that is you, please contact me and I will insert appropriate credits . . . or refer visitors to your website to listen, whichever may be your preference.  Anybody else, this cannot be downloaded, sold for profit, or forwarded to your friends without adding appropriate credits to the copyright holder (and paying him/her/them).  Tute is fair to middling at real estate issues, copyright might as well be Greek.}

The note was originally posted in July, 2003.  In June 2004, Tute received a tip from a Texas Criminal Defense Lawyer which led to the copyright owners, who are:

The Bar and Grill Singers, from Austin, Texas

 From the CD "Licensed to Grill" produced by The Travis County Bar Association
 Website: www.barandgrillsingers.com 

Licensed to Grill (1997) $15

Grilling Me Softly (2000) $15

"By the way, we are re-recording "Appointed Forever" on our third CD, "A Time to Grill," which should be released in the early fall. That will have a MUCH better version of the song."

The Bar Grill Singers, all of whom are practicing attorneys in Austin, Texas, have entertained lawyers and non-lawyers since their 1991 debut in a one-performance musical revue. Now appearing year-round across the nation, the Singers spoof themselves and their profession with clever lyrics set to a variety of musical styles. They needle everything and everyone around the law, including clients, billing practices, legal ethics, bored jurors, and (gasp!) federal judges.

Over the past 10 years, the Singers have benefited volunteer legal services for the indigent, and have raised over $300,000 from their performances and CD sales. The Singers have released two CDs, "Grilling Me Softly" and "Licensed to Grill," which are available for purchase at their performances, from their website, or from the Travis County Bar Association.
