Artisan in their "Stuff the Turkey" tour spent about half an hour giving examples of the different tunes you can sing the carol "the holly and the ivy" to, such as house of the rising sun! - needless to say they had the audience in stitches. Well worth seeing/ hearing. They explained they had started seeing what strange tunes the words would fit to was a way of passing the time when travelling between gigs.
