This seems the appropriate place to remind everyone that you can sing the words to the Gilligan's Island song to the melody for Amazing Grace and vice versa.

 

 

House of the Rising Sun is also interchangeable with both (and switching Amazing Grace with HotRS and vice versa both work surprisingly well). Much of Emily Dickinson's poetry is the right meter that it can be sung to Gilligans Island as well.

Also the "I'd Like To Teach The World To Sing/Buy The World a Coke" song fits ED's poetry meter too.

There's a bit in a movie (I forget which one) about being able to sing any Emily Dickinson poem to the tune of "The Yellow Rose of Texas". It all has to do with the fact that Dickinson composed most of her work in some variant of common meter: 8/6/8/6 or 8/8/8/8.

Why should you be taught the rules, dear?

Don't you have anything better to ask about?  Like all those chores you've been putting off?

If you had even the brains G-d gave a soda cracker, you wouldn't have to ask that.

Oh, and that girl you're seeing... is she pregnant already?

hope she's at least sixteen... she is, isn't she?

Are you sure you can afford that, with all the other foolishness you squander your money on?

Have you caught up on your remedial reading yet?  Or have you even started it?
