New music for brass?

Inspired by a misprint I saw on a CD cover (George Gershwin's 'It Ain't Necessarily Sop') I wonder what other song titles not originally conceived for brass could be made into 'brass' works by a swift 'misprint' or two....

Horn Staccato (Dinicu)

Embraceable Euph (Gershwin)

Bass, You Is My Woman Now (Gershwin)

Trombone Harvester (as originally performed by the Wurzels)

Anything by Bari Manilow (Sopacabana, for instance)

Any more?

Not forgetting of course that the removal of a comma produces..

Serenade for Tenor Horn and Strings (Britten)

Talking of which, has anyone on here ever played a pocket cornet? God, they're awful.... (or I'm awful at playing it... more likely the latter! ;-))

Slide a Cock Horse (Stop sniggering....)

Anything by the 'Cor'rs

I Want To Scold Your Band (a favourite amongst conductors)
