* The song sung by the Easter Bunny in ''Webcomic/SluggyFreelance'' is not-so-subtly modified from the Lumberjack song from ''Series/MontyPythonsFlyingCircus''. Which in turn is based on one of Creator/WolfgangAmadeusMozart's operatic arias.

** Overall Overall, it's a common practice for even new lyricists to repurpose existing familiar tunes for new hymns.hymns. This is why many hymnals include an index of tune names and meters in the back, so that accompanists and congregations can mix-and-match new words to familiar tunes or vice-versa. It's also ridiculously common to open two different hymnals and find them using totally different melodies for the same words. (For instance, the ''United Methodist Hymnal'' has a hymn titled "Forward Through the Ages" which uses the melody for "Onward, Christian Soldiers.")



** Really, you could pick up any two hymnals at random and find that they have totally different melodies for the same words. The fact that a lot of hymns are in CommonMeter really helps.
