Amendment to last post

Yesterday, the Husbandlet started singing the Gilligan's Island theme song.

haHA.

The fact that he can sing is a miracle. The fact that he would sing this song is beyond comprehension.

Both, of course, are my doing.

At least it's a somewhat hallowed tune--remember Fernando Ortega using it as an alternate melody for "Amazing Grace"? [Which means it would also work with Emily Dickinson's poems. "Because I could not stop for Death-- / He kindly stopped for me--"]

8-6-8-6 with repeats?

Yes, the same meter, which happens to be common meter. [Oh, what a perfect link! I had no idea of the contents--I promise--until I looked it up just now!]

Yes, dearies.

Other songs in this meter include "Can you feel the love tonight," "The house of the rising sun," "The lion sleeps tonight," "Joy to the world," "The yellow rose of Texas," and oh so many more. I actually use this as a meter assignment with my students every year ... they have to come up with as many songs in this meter as possible. All of Wordsworth's Lucy poems can be sung to these songs, as well as most of Dickinson's.

Evil, EVIL, brainpower sucking song of great innaness. It sneaks in, latches on and won't let go. I feel like my mind has been infected with a computer virus.

It has been infested with the meter matching game. Think of all the "great" tunes you can use with the Gilligan lyrics, and vice versa. Add the In the Bathtub game (where you add the words "In the Bathtub" to the song titles) and the possibilties for a real good time are endless.

It's always interesting to me to see which of my posts inspire the most commentary.

BTW, the Husbandlet is no longer a Gilligan's Island virgin. He watched his first episode this evening!

Wow... almost as momentous as losing your Dragnet virginity. (Green Acres, LHOTP, Mr. Ed, take your pick.)

I've never watched "Anne of Green Gables", thank God.

Green Gables! It burns us it does!

I just wanted to be the 13th lucky poster. ;-)

Ah, but Anne of Green Gables the TV movie, or its bastard cousin "Avonlea," don't compare to the original book series. I have vague memories of one (or more?) of the books exemplifying the author's "Obsession with Ellipses" phase, in which every... paragraph... looked like... this.

(Was it maybe "Anne of the Island" or something? Or was that "Black Stallion of the Island"? Or am I confusing it with "Stormy, Misty's Foal"? It all runs together now...)
