I was expecting this would match articles to the entire song, not just the chorus line. What is the chance of finding such a thing in Wikipedia, Twitter, etc.?

I see what you did, Etrigan.

The late, lamented Bad Gods (by MeFi's own Lore Sjoberg) used to have the Doo-Dah News Network, which would do this except for the first line of Camptown Races.

I'm really dying to have a nice six syllable one after every third entry, so I could properly drive Mrs. TheCoug crazy by singing the list out loud forever.

This reminds me of one of my favorite Key & Peele sketches: Ray Parker Jr. Greatest Hits, where the hook for all the movie themes is a variation on "Ghostbusters! I ain't 'fraid a' no ghost!"

Personal fave: "Apt Pupil! There's a kid and a Nazi down there!"

This uses Glench's web form to generate them, which explains the xkcd connection. It seems it was a surprise to Glench, though!

Yeah, reading a bunch of these in a row is like waiting for the bass drop that never comes.

I am saddened to learn that 'tetrameter' is commonly pronounced 'te-TRA-meter', in an iambic fashion. BOO. Still, my way makes more sense, as does 'thermo-meter' for the temperature measuring device.
