I'm looking for not rounds, but tunes that can be sung on top of each other: Like Row, Row your Boat and Frere Jacque. Or "Jump, Down, Turn Around Pick a Bale of Cotton" and "Shut the Door, Keep out the Devil"
I went to a workshop years ago where we sang a bunch of these.

We sometimes used to sing 'Riding Along on the Crest Of A Wave' behind 'You Are My Sunshine'.

The classic pairing, from the 1st World War is "Tipperary" and "Pack Up Your Troubles".

Once at Pinewoods Folk Music Week I heard a wonderful rendition by Joy Bennett of Billy Ed Wheeler's Red-winged Blackbird with the old-time tune, Cluck Old Hen.

"Frere Jacques", "Row, Row, Row Your Boat", and "Three Blind Mice" (each of them as a round, of course).

"Home, Sweet Home" and "My Silver Bell".

"I've Been Working on the Railroad" and "Old Black Joe" (the harmony is not perfect, but the coincidence of "Dinah, won't you blow" and "I'm coming" makes up for that).

The Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain has a quodlibet called "Fly Me Off the Handel" at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2P1-UvqdD7o starting with a piece by George Frideric Handel, and adding "Fly Me to the Moon." the "Theme from Love Story," "Autumn Leaves," "Killing Me Softly With His Song." "Hotel California," and "I Will Survive," first sequentially, and then all on top of one another. What do all of these songs have in common? Am-F-G-C-Am-F-E-E7.


Another combination is "Swing Low Sweet Chariot," "When the Saints Go Marching In," and "Dominique," and "The Battle Hymn of the Republic." There may have been a fifth one we used to sing with them, but my memory is fuzzy on that.

One combination is "Fever," "Wade in the Water," and "Joshua Fit the Battle of Jericho." I know a couple more, but the names aren't coming to the top of my head right now. One of these is on a cassette I took at a song session, that I will have to relisten to. Will hopefully post back later.
