Dean’s Playlist: Denburg Sings a Song

Nothing connects people like music, so we continue to humanize the administrators of our great University with the latest addition to our rave-reviewed series of celebrity playlists. This week, we feature Dorothy Denburg, Dean of Barnard College and the person who makes decisions about meal plans and such. Bwog can’t personally remember the last time Sesame Street came up on its iTunes, but thanks to Dean Denburg, “Sing a Song” is about to get put into heavy rotation (for at least like a week). Enjoy:

“La Vie en Rose” and “Milord” – Edith Piaf

“Bridge over Troubled Water” and “Cecilia” – Simon and Garfunkel

“Tom’s Diner” – Suzanne Vega

“New Soul” – Yael Naim

“Let It Be” – The Beatles

“Joy to the World” –  Three Dog Night

“I Dig Rock n’ Roll Music” – Peter, Paul, and Mary/The Mamas and Papas

The score of “Wicked”

The entire score of “Finian’s Rainbow”

“Sing A Song” from Sesame Street

“Mambo Number 5” – Lou Bega
