YouTune no.27: Brothers in Arms (West Wing edition)

Apologies for the lack of proper posting over the last week. Work has rudely interrupted what was getting to be quite a nice blogging habit.

I merely note that that’s the kind of kid I was.

So imagine my utter delight when the Season 2 finale of West Wing combined some of the finest television drama there has ever been with Brothers in Arms.

Here, for your absolute pleasure, is the finale (spoilers):

If you know of any other brilliant soundtrack like this, do please share it in the comments.
