Hi there, I'm going to try and end my puzzlers block :? by posting something very, and I mean very, silly so here goes.

According to him there's music in the rear, I think.

Does this involve a song? misheard lyrics? failure of communication?

Are these "famously" misheard lyrics, like "there's a bathroom on the right?" Or just ones you personally misheard?

Are the lyrics in the chorus of the song?

Is this song considered rock? pop? metal? country? rap? R&B? Was it released in the 50s? 60s? 70s? 80s? 90s? 2000s? 2010s?

Sorry for delay in answering

Are these "famously" misheard lyrics, like "there's a bathroom on the right?" Or just ones you personally misheard? Actually it's more of a homphone than a misheard lyric that could jokingly misinterpreted

Are the lyrics in the chorus of the song? No in a verse

Is this song considered rock? pop? metal? country? rap? R&B? Was it released in the 50s? 60s? 70s? 80s? 90s? 2000s? 2010s? It's more a folk/traditional song which was released in either the late 70s or early 80s . Google did not help me on the exact date.

Folk/traditional, huh? Hmm...

Stupid and possibly rude question: Is farting relevant?

A Mondegreen puzzle, eh? I recall Lynne did one about the Teddy Bears Picnic. Oh, and howdy.

Folk/traditional - associated with any holiday?

Hi Bodo it's been a while, nice to :shock: you

Folk/traditional - associated with any holiday? No

A little clue as this is quite a silly puzzle - this is a well known Irish song that references an even more famous Irish song and in doing so creates the Mondegreen.

Is it a rebel song? Perhaps about someone arrested for singing a second song? "The Old Orange Flute?"

I thought of farting because it can be regarded as musical, and it comes from the rear.

Another clue in the hope that I can put this to bed - The song that's referenced in the other song is about as famous an Irish song as one could imagine.

"Wearing of the Green" is the first thing that comes to mind, and I can think of a few songs that mention it. "Dublin Fusiliers" for one, but that's not really folk per se.

Or the national anthem, "A Soldier's Song" (personally I prefer the runner-up for that post, "O'Donnell Abu").

Hint : While Danny Boy is the song referenced in the other song it's not actually referred to by name . Some minor knowledge of Danny Boy is required or a quick Wiki will do just as well.

Gah - let's just say Danny Boy is not one of my favorites. (My dad downright hates it.)

Is a line from Danny Boy quoted in the second song? The tune Londonderry Air relevant?

Is a line from Danny Boy quoted in the second song? No The tune Londonderry Air relevant? Absolutely and all you have to do is think what a certain section of Irish society would call that piece of music

In an attempt to decrypt the puzzle title ..
Derry instead of Londonderry?
Derry as phonetically close to "derrière"?

In an attempt to decrypt the puzzle title ..
Derry instead of Londonderry?
Derry as phonetically close to "derrière"? Super job and bang on accurate.

*****************Spoiler********************

In Phil Coulter's beatiful song 'The Town I Loved so Well' which is written about his home town of Derry there is the line 'There was music there in the Derry Air' which is a reference to the tune made famous by the song Danny Boy. Of course this sounds like he's saying derriere so he might be saying that there's music in the rear (well to my mind anyway).

The puzzle title as you correctly worked out refers to the two traditions in Ireland and their different names for the city of Derry. Unionists or Loyalists refer to it as Londonderry while nationalists and republicans refer to it as Derry. Where I come from we would never call it Londonderry. So depending on your background the name of the city may begin with L or D.

Thanks for favouring this silly puzzle with more attention than it probably deserved.

It certainly is. I hope you're listening to the Luke Kelly (Dubliners) version. Nobody can beat Luke when It comes to a ballad. Check out his version of 'A Song for Ireland' which was recorded shortly before his death. Hauntingly beautiful
