Message:  Craig, Mickey did that himself. In a lot of his live performances he would sing one of his tunes to the words of another melody he had written. It didn't seem to bother him at all because he was intent on bringing an "experience" to his listeners (audience); and if he was "called" within himself to switch tunes, no big deal . . . they all were his anyway, and he could use them any way he pleased, which, I'm sure, pleased him as a composer. Greatness is only amazed by those who call it greatness. It is just as natural as breathing to them. There's a difference between a rut and a groove! If you know dirt roads, you'll understand.
Sail On!
