Here is Paul Simon singing American Tune. Did you need that? I don't know. I needed that.

I'm very fond of that song, but I did a double-take the first time I heard it because I was already familiar with this song that uses the same tune.

Matthew Tepper once provided me with the common origin (a hymn with the word "head" in it) and the composer's name (not Bach), but I don't seem to have archived it anywhere that I can dredge up again, alas.

It's "O Sacred Head Now Wounded," and the composer is Hans Leo Hassler, not well-known mostly outside church music circles.

Thank you very much. I've tucked the e-mail away where I keep this sort of miscellaneous info that I want to save, so I should have it for next time I want it.

D'oh! How had I not connected it to "O Sacred Head Now Wounded" given the many times I've sung (or heard) that dang hymn?
