I posted Tom Lehrer’s Masochism Tango vid a couple of years back now (Wow! Where does the time go?), mentioning I’d first heard his song during my Halloween ’06 prep in an Addams Family tribute video. Since it’s become tradition for me to watch The Addams Family movies during my Halloween countdown, in 2006, while digging around YT for vids of Charles Addams’ creepy, kooky creations, I found the mashup of Gomez, Morticia and Tom’s tune.
And while the vid in today’s entry isn’t the same one I found in ’06 (it was removed from YT), it’s pretty darn close.

It’s almost like Lehrer’s ditty was written specifically for these two characters. I’m still amazed that this song, combined with the Gomez and Morticia theme, hasn’t been used for a Tango on “Dancing With The Stars”… not like I watch that show with any regularity.
