Subject: RE: Help: I need some tune names!!
Are you Irish? If so, be aware of the powerful All-Ireland Board for the Perpetuation of Enigmatic Tune Names. They are behind such names as "Upstairs in the Tent," "Take Her Out and Air Her," and "The Caravat and Shanavest." These are actual tunes from the Roche Collection.

Scotland has the Tune-Names Board. They like several kinds of names. One favored kind is the name almost as long as the tune, such as "Lieutenant Colonel Angus MacGillicuddy's Farewell to Loch Dubh." Another kind makes reference to booze, but in a cute way. A third uses funny spelling, as in "The Twa Plagies." Come to think of it, adding "ies" to an ordinary word will likely win their approval.

Don't run afoul of these people if you seek fame and fortune!
