Listed below are links to weblogs that reference The Floating Crowbar & The Rambling Pitchfork: The Poetry of Irish Tune Titles (Terence Winch):


WHAT a treasure this is!!! I will save and read again. Terence is a contribution in his own self.

Great piece. There's lots of sexual stuff. Not too long ago we were talking about the "exciting" medley, Corny is Coming into the Maid Behind the Bar - or the Lady's Pantalettes. Take your pick - either tune works :)

The famous Corny is also know for coming into the Lady's Pantalettes

A rich topic - endless possibilities. Wasn't there a recent work of fiction organized around tune titles. And the opportunities for low wit, by substituting with homophones to result in My Darling's A Sheep, or the retain-the-meaning-but-in-other-words game, where Dick Gossip becomes...Girl Talk. Thanks for the topic.

Excellent post, Terry. Now if I can just figure out how best to print it out for our files here...

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark

This Way Out

by T.P.Winch

Ringfinger was nervous
Pinky terrified
when they learned
that Hand might succumb
to the rule of Thumb.
