      Hi Howard. That's the kind of thing I want to determine for as many
      tunes as I can. I assume it depends on what musicians were listening
      to, what grabbed 'em, what besides personal taste caused the tunes to
      become part of the *tradition*, hence to be played regularly for decades.
