I remember somebody ginned up an awful pun that had to do with a train headed into Danzig some sixty years ago, getting there after dark, and once they got there the conductor said "Buy coal, Porter." Problem is he didn't write "Dancing In the Dark." That song was written by Howard Dietz and Arthur Schwartz. Naturally, I felt honor-bound to point that out to the person who sent the pun to me, as I like composers and lyricists to get proper credit.

Yeah; people should get stuff right if they are going to repost it. I usually say "from an unknown author" or "credited to Cole Porter" rather than just use the common wisdom.

I've kidded for years that I was going to write a song called "End The Beguine." Also said I was going to write one called "I've Got It Good, And That Ain't Bad." (Won't mean anything to you unless you're into the Duke Ellington canon.)
There is, or used to be, a Chinese all-you-can-eat buffet here in town called The Song Long. Martha and I called it the Begin The Beguine. . .

End the Beguine? That's good!
The Song Long aka Begin the Beguine? Cracked me up, Dana!
I didn't know Anka didn't write My Way. So he was a plagiarist. Maybe Biden should use one of HIS songs!
