Absolutely.  I remember Bruce Bradley playing Screaming Jay Hawkins 
version of "I Put a Spell on You" which he often cut up and used for 
drop-ins (or "hacks" as they used to be called).  He also played 
"Grandpa's Grave" by Peter Sellers ("We're removing grandpa's grave 
to build a sewer..."  Ah they don't write 'em like that any more!)
