Chicken Charlie Metasongs, songs within songs (104* d) RE: Metasongs, songs within songs 11 Jun 01

Well they were out there on the sea,
And the band played, "Nearer, My God to Thee"--
Fare thee well, Titanic, fare thee well....

There's another one about a goose and a gander singing "Rally Round the Flag," which just might be a Southron take on a Union song [BATTLE CRY OF FREEDOM], if'n yawl catch mah drift.

I like the conceit about a song eating its own tail. I think "ALABAMA JUBILEE" does that too, depending on the version of words you use.

What was the name of the mellow rock song, "and the jukebox kept on playin' 'Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band'..." [SUMMER RAIN by Johnny Rivers]
