So here's a hoot. Sing the song "Scarborough Fair" while framing every phrase as an incredulous question. I was doing this all while making tacos and laughed myself even more hoarse.

Anyone else do anything fun with songs to make them silly?

apparently Emily Dickinson's poems all fit nicely into the cheeful tune of 'The Yellow Rose of Texas,' thus.

I'm fond of the group Big Daddy (reportely disbanded, alas), whose take on then-contemporary music could best be described as "revisionist." Say, Paul Simon's "Graceland" as if sung by Elvis Presley.

Emily Dickinson also works great to the Gilligan's Island song.

I still fondly remember some childhood parodies, parodies of things like TV theme music or Christmas carols or the occasional pop song. "Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord / He is driving down the alley in a pink-and-yellow Ford / One hand is on the throttle and the other on a bottle of Pabst Blue Ribbon Beer!"
