God Rest Ye Merry Gilligan

I'm ashamed but this one wrote itself.

My apologies to Barenaked Ladies, Sarah McLachlan, and Aaron Spelling but it's about time I got this off my chest.

Ha ha! Very nice. I guess you were serious about doing one yourself. Great job.

Oh man, this is fantastic, and because of this I've trying to think..."what's the mash-up of songs that works with Gilligan.... " and it finally came to me tonight.

"Amazing Grace" and the "Gilligan" theme. Seriously, try it. It's a riot, and fun at parties!

(Warning, the ability and decision to recite this at parties, may cause loss of friends and invitations to parties...)

Also try "Deck the Halls" with Edgar Alan Poe's "The Raven."

i.e. - Once upon a midnight dreary, fa la la la la, la la la la....

(I'm so lonely...)

Wow, that's kind of uncanny.
Now I have to play it while I watch The Wizard of Oz and see if it syncs up.

Anything that can sync up to Amazing Grace has to have some merit. I'm totally trying that tomorrow!

Undeniably amusing and downright catchy too. Well done!

Uncanny. And canny. And not.
