Like "I Need Your Help, Barry Manilow", this is a humorous take on the truck driver's gear change, which I applaud; but that's not going to stop me including it in the Hall of Shame.
The first time the line "my heart starts to soar" appears, the melody slickly soars up but then straight back down. Mel Brooks cunningly waits till the second time before giving it the full shift, helpfully shouting "key change!" as it happens. For anyone who can't quite grasp the concept of the truck driver's gear change, this snippet should serve as the coursework for Gear Change 101.
This is, of course, taken from Mel Brooks's Hitchcock spoof of the same name.
