Subject: RE: Common poems set to music
Back on 10 Oct 06 - 03:01 PM GUEST,CA mentioned singing Emily Dickinson poems to the tune of the Gilligan's Island theme. Another standard gag that I have frequently heard of is singing Emily Dickinson poems to "The Yellow Rose of Texas". And of course, there is also singing Robert Frost's "Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening" to "Hernando's Hideaway".
