    When I was a little boy, I loved listening to Peter and the Wolf almost as much as Dabitch's daughter loves the Apoteket commercial. The José Ferrer and Leonard Bernstein versions were my favorites. And I'll admit that I still have the Bernstein version on my iPod, and I find it very calming when I'm stressed out.
