Ten Best Seinfeld Musical Moments

Who could forget that time Jerry told Elaine that War and Peace was originally called "War, What is it Good For?" Absolutely no one.

Seinfeld was a show that challenged, and it enriched (your collection of "I'm really funny, no, really" quotes, if nothing else). It sometimes did that awesome thing where you're confused for a half a second before you get the joke, so you feel smarter or more sophisticated once you do -- not that there's anything wrong with not getting it immediately.

Or you cringed a bit at times, looking around for others' reactions, feeling naughty like you were making out during Schindler's List or something. Jerry, George, Elaine, and Kramer took your lame inner monologues, all those socially questionable queries you had, those masturbation pacts with your friends, and put it all out there, but funny-like.

We're exploring the finest musical moments the best show ever created (sorry Sopranos) has to offer weeks before Jerry comes to town for a two-day stint at Hard Rock Live Hollywood. Seinfeld purists, go to (Petula Clark's Down)town on us, and point out what we're missing in the comments.
