Ear Worm With Classy Roots

Did you know that the tune for Allan Sherman’s “Hello Muddah, Hello Fadduh, Here I am at Camp Granada” is a piece of classical music by Ponchielli? It’s from the Dance of the Hours from La Gioconda. Who knew? Obviously not me. I had the cable music channel on and suddenly found myself singing: “Hello Muddah, Hello Fadduh...” when I looked up to see what was really playing!
:: Just an odd little factoid I wanted to share.
