Have you ever tried to sing one song while using the melody of a different song? Somehow it occurred to me that the words for “America the Beautiful” can be sung to the melody of “Auld Lang Syne.” Try it! The meter is just right for the two songs to use each other’s melodies. I also found that the beginning verses to Led Zeppelin’s “Dazed and Confused” can be sung in meter to the melody of “Jackie Blue” by the Ozark Mountain Daredevils.
Yes, things are very slow and boring at work today.
