I also have experimented on variations in music (and lyrics) and found out lots of interesting things.

Bill Bailey is a much loved British autodidact - music, comedy, stand-up, twitcher (bird watching expert) and political commentator.

On YouTube, you can see him in a series called Black books with the brilliant Dylan Moran and Tasmin Greig written by the equally brilliant Graham Lenihan who also gave us Father Ted and The IT crowd.
