On this side of the pond Cool Beans we smile at your spelling of humour.

I have a songbook entitled "The Best of The Beatles" with their 92 most popular songs. Some funny things happen when you put their songs in alphabetical order, including pearls like:

"All You Need is Love/And I Love Her/Back in the USSR,"

"Dear Prudence/Do You Want to Know A Secret?/Drive My Car/Eight Days A Week,"

"Here Comes the Sun/Here, There and Everywhere"

"Hey Jude/I Am the Walrus/I Feel Fine"

"Please Please Me/PS I Love You"

"Revolution/Run for your Life"

"She Loves You/She's A Woman"

"We Can Work It Out/When I'm Sixty-Four"

"While My Guitar Gently Weeps/With A Little Help From My Friends"

"The Word/Yellow Submarine/Yes It Is"

"You've Got to Hide Your Love Away/Your Mother Should Know"

But perhaps the best one is

"I Saw Her Standing There/I Should Have Known Better/I Want to Hold Your Hand/I Will/I'll Cry Instead/I'll Follow the Sun/I'm a Loser/I'm Happy Just to Dance With You"

Not only cross the big pond, Raggy. We canux retain the u too. And CoolBeanns, there's a whack of these in the forum archive ~ other 'catters will correct me, but I think the phrase "name game" was in those thread titles ~ your contribution is pretty cool. And cnd's beatles were fun …

keep on pickin'

In _The Songs of Cyril Tawney_, "Five-Foot Flirt" is immediately preceded by "Six Feet of Mud".

Not 'folk', by far and away my favorite juxtaposition was on a juke box in a restaurant many years ago. They played 45 RPMs, with side A - the artist - side B

it looked like this:

PLEASE

Elvis Presley

DON'T

The Everly Brothers had a hit entitled "The Price of Love" and the B side was "It Only Costs A Dime". Oddly enough they were in the same key. We cut and pasted the two title soundbites together just for a bit of fun.
