I really kind of hate Neil Gaiman ever since he pointed out that you could sing 'Greensleeves' to the tune of 'Yakity Yak.'

I hate my co-worker for pointing out that you can sing almost all of Emily Dickinson's poetry to "The Yellow Rose of Texas".

Now Neil Gaiman's on my list, too. ;P

YOu can also mix 'n match emily, Yellow Rose, the Gilligan's Island theme, and Amazing Grace.

You're welcome.

Now I have something new to share with my Intro to Lit students in the fall :)

On the down side, the Gilligan theme song has forever been ruined.

Yeah, you WOULD write them all out together like that, wouldn't you?


:shakes head: Some people got no sense of shame.

Also the Internationale, the Marseillaise, "House of the Rising Sun" and "Oh Susanna".

That is simultaneously horrible and brilliant.

*sings first verse, falls over laughing*

Sho nuff!

Omigod, if I ever find a karaoke place with "Yakity Yak" on the machine, I’m so doing this.

Last Christmas, I heard a version of "Oh Little Town of Bethlehem" set to "The House of the Rising Sun."

You can sing "The Chanukkah Song" to:

America the Beautiful
Addicted to Love
I've Got a Little List
All of Me

I'm at once horrified and amused.

And pissed because I now have a "Yakity-Yak" earworm.

I could probably dredge up the appropriate levels of hatred if I could remember how "Yakity Yak" went. Oh well.
