Laurie Anderson created an unforgettable four minutes of late-night television when she performed a revised version of "Only an Expert," from her recently released Nonesuch album, Homeland, on Late Night with David Letterman July 14 on CBS. As she has in last week's live performances of songs from Homeland in Philadelphia, New York, and at the Birchmere in Alexandria, Virginia, Anderson added references to the BP oil disaster in the Gulf of Mexico ("Sometimes, when the oil dill breaks, and the oil spills out into the ocean ...") to the song's sardonic chorus, "Only an expert can deal with the problem." At the song's end, Letterman, on his way to greet the performers, says emphatically: "Exactly. That's exactly what I was thinking." The complete performance of "Only an Expert" soon made its way onto Gawker ("What the Hell Just Happened on Letterman?") and is featured on The Daily Beast's Video Cheat Sheet.
