The examples on this page needs to be divided into folders, but how would the alphabetization be divided up?

I've not seen any consistent formatting.

Someone asked the question here and got a "wherever you think is best" sort of response:

This might be useful:

I didn't see anything else strongly pertinent, but that doesn't mean it's not out there.

I think four folders at A-D, E-M, N-R and S-Z would give a reasonably equidistant breakdown.

Jeopardy Theme/I'm a little teapot.

I put it back (someone had removed the "common meter" entry). Type "think jeopardy teapot" into a search engine and you will find boards comparing and contrasting the two. Now I'm not saying you yourself may think they are common meter, but there are evidently many people out there who do think so, to bring it up on message boards and to make YouTube videos explaining it. At the very least - as is stated on the page with common meter - the very end bit of each "verse" matches "tip me over and pour me out."

I am not saying one influenced the other or anything like that (some people out there do seem to think that) - but the two are rhythmically and musically similar.

While "not even close" is a bad edit reason that doesn't explain anything to people who don't know the work, relying on "many people" on message boards doesn't strike me as good evidence either.

A good point. That's why I'm bringing it up in discussion rather than starting an Edit War.

I don't see how you're getting Common Meter at all. "I'm a Little Teapot" is not common meter, since it's 9 9 9 8 if I remember the words right. If the Jeopardy! music had words, it would likely be 7 10 7 7. Neither of those is 8 6 8 6.

Is there a better trope fitting how the end of the think music matches the coda for "I'm a little teapot?"

Would "The Dreaded" appear in this list as there are "The Dreaded Opera Category" and "The Dreaded Spelling Category"? I once humorously suggested "The Dreaded Nuclear Physics Category" might be next
