My younger (full) brother had developmental issues--ADHD being one of them. He could only remember "Joy to the World" when he heard Three Dog Night sing it, and so he'd go around just singing that one verse...

He died four years ago this week. The next weekend we went to a party, and the singer/guitarist started off with "Jereimiah was a bull frog..." and then couldn't understand why we were bawling....

[As an aside, another funny thing about that song is that our day care teacher wanted us to sing the Christmas carol...but half the class did "Joy to the world..." while the other half did "Jeremiah was a bull frog..."]
