Saturday morning tunes: Don't know where, don't know when

Stephen Colbert wrapped up "The Colbert Report" Thursday night with this classic 1939 World War II song made immortal by Dame Vera Lynn (probably by coincidence, it was also the music to the ending of Stanley Kubrik's 1964 dark, dark, dark classic "Dr. Strangelove") 

Colbert's version features . . . everybody.

If you need a cheat sheet for most of the guest singers, it's here. It's probably the first and last time that Sir Patrick Stewart has stood within arm's length of Dr. Henry "The Butcher of Cambodia" Kissinger.

We wish the lad good luck with his new show. He seems to have prospects.

(Also, 39 years ago tomorrow, Harry Chapin hit the top of the Billboard Hot 100 with "Cat's in the Cradle." We gave it the p3 treatment in 2012.)
