      Or check out The Blind Boys of Alabama version.

      This is one of the progressions you can play over and over again and before it gets stale you realize it's midnight and you have been playing this song for hours...

        I'd rather sing the lyrics to "Gilligan's Island" over Stairway to Heaven...

            During the Christmas season, I sing the lyrics of "O Little Town of Bethlehem" to the tune of "House of the Rising Sun".

            Stole it off a Bob Rivers CD.

                Yup. I did that at a gig once; I though it'd be funny since people weren't dancing much. But as soon as I started it, the dance floor PACKED. Oops. As soon as I started singing Gilligan's Island, I though the crowd was going to tear us apart like a pack of sex-starved babboons.

                    I do the "Beverly Hillbillies" as a rap song whenever some joker asks us to play some rap.
