Sam, don't apologize for spacehogging; as usual, you nailed it. In the book learnin' world, I've found some of the concepts in the Chuck Sher/ Marc Johnson useful for rut busting. In the song retitling category, we used to call it "As Time Goes Bad"; and Cottontail became "Bunny Butt". Even better were requests from Japanese patrons, as delivered by the waithelp to the bandstand. "Ipanema" became "The Guard from Panama" (say it in your best fake Japanese accent), and we once did a stellar version of "Nineteen Girls Sang in Berkeley Square".
