Its No Headphones Friday at work, and someone just played a whole depressing Ryan Adams album, which ends with a bit of a drone as though he is pressing his head in frustration on the keyboard.
Which reminded me of... Don Music from Sesame Street. God bless the internet, here he is, on the Muppet Wiki. If you remember, he usually was trying to "write" a song that happened to already be well know, eg Mary Had a Little Lamb, and would always get stuck on the last line, and then punish his piano with his forehead.
There is a Don Music sketch listed there that I never saw, where he playing the part of Thomas Jefferson, trying to finish the Declaration of Independence. He needs a replacement quill - Grover tries to help but brings him a drill, then a chicken named Phil.
