That reminds me of something. Bear with me here. Someone once posted something about how Paco-Bell's Canon shows up in so much music. Like it's structure is universal. Recall that?
Well, I found another. I heard a twisted Christmas song where they took the lyrics to "Oh Little Town of Bethlehem" and set them to the tune of "House of the Rising Sun" by The Animals.
Then, quite accidentally, I found that the lyrics to the "Gilligan's Island" theme song also fit that tune quite well.
Got to be more than coincidence. So, maybe this tune is another universal one. Can anyone put other well known lyrics into the same tune? I'd like to compile a list.
