how did i not realize that??

"Torchwood" is an anagram of "Doctor Who".

['s like when I finally twigged to the fact that "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star" and the alphabet song were the same tune. Head-shaking moment of "duh" and "cool" and "blush"...]

Or realizing Amazing Grace works perfectly well like this:

Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like meeeeee.
I once was lost, but now am found.
Was blind, but now, I seeee.

So come along, and sing the song
And join the jamboree.
M I C, K E Y.
M O, -oh U, S E

Oh, that's a good one!

There is also the "Emily Dickinson poems can be sung to the tune of 'Yellow Rose of Texas'" ["Because I could not stop for Death, He kindly stopped for me; The carriage held but just ourselves And Immortality."]

Another one for me is the Banana Splits 'la-la' chorus ["la la la, la-la-la la"] and "Buffalo Soldier" ["Oy yoy yah, oy-ya-yoy yah"].

Oh! Just thought of one more...not an exact fit, but enough to make me giggle: "Loch Lomond" ["You take the high road, and I'll take the low road"] and "Delta Dawn" ["Delta Dawn, what's that flower you have on?"].

My brain is a very scary place...

There was also a popular hard-hitting, pulse-pounding heavy rock song that, when slowed slightly, worked perfectly well to "Monster Mash." Wish I could remember what it was. sigh

(OK, I can't get the Loch Lomond/Delta Dawn to work in my brain. The "Delta Dawn" just won't take up five beats.)
