Strunk and White’s grammatically correct song titles

The Pop Culture Happy Hour at NPR had a crossover with fellow show Ask Me Another featuring song lyrics revised around proper grammar–timely, given the first week of composition and literature courses throughout the United States.

(“Is You Is, Or Is You Ain’t My Baby” doesn’t come from Bugs Bunny–it comes from Tom and Jerry.)

H/T Angela Carter for pointing me to the show.
