My new favorite Irish tune name: "Splendid Isolation." It's a nice-sounding tune, too: a G-dorian reel, composed by Brendan McGlinchey (not that I know who that is).

My old favorite tune name was "Toss the Fiddles," composed by piper Kieran O'Hare and his fiddler wife Liz Knowles, who was trying to teach him to play fiddle (yes, I do know who these two are--I got to hear the story in person, when Liz was teaching me to play "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star"--the extent of my fiddle experience).
