* It has been pointed out that any EmilyDickinson poem can be sung to "The Yellow Rose of Texas": the phenomenon gets a mention in a fifth-season ''Series/BabylonFive'' episode, and also features in Sharyn [=McCrumb=]'s (Literature/BimbosOfTheDeathSun), ''Zombies of the Gene Pool'', where a Hillybilly folk singer (with a Ph.D.) mentions that he did exactly this to fool a visiting scholar.

It was also discussed in ''Series/HeadOfTheClass.'' Dickinson poems can be sung to the ''Series/GilligansIsland'' theme, as well, but don't bring it up in a literature class!

* "The Lion Sleeps Tonight". Possibly one of the more amusing tunes to sing "Amazing Grace" to. (For maximum effectiveness, at the "wimoweh" parts, say "amazing grace" instead.)


Added DiffLines:

* "The Lion Sleeps Tonight" is not in Common Meter, but it's ''just'' close enough to make it one of the more amusing tunes to sing "Amazing Grace" to. (For maximum effectiveness, at the "wimoweh" parts, say "amazing grace" instead.)
