Today's Tune: "Oo-De-Lally" By Roger Miller

King John of England (Reigned April 6, 1199 to October 19, 1216) was married for the second time (First was annulled) on August 24, 1200. He earned himself the reputation of being a greedy and power hungry man through some very ruthless actions, including while he was still a prince and his brother King Richard I was away at "that crazy Crusade". He eventually signed the power limiting Magna Carta, though it took serious pressure to bring that about. With King John in mind, I've selected Roger Miller's "Oo-De-Lally" from Walt Disney's 'Robin Hood' for 'Today's Tune'.
