I'll add a few more thoughts to the pile:

Duchess Dressed in Blue...

Clive

Is this the tune known elsewhere as Dark Girl Dressed in Blue, or something completely different?

I know "Dark Girl Dressed in blue" - but can't find "Duchess..." can someone point me in the right direction?

It's the same tune as far as I'm aware - it goes under several different names.

Cheers,

How about Herbert The Sherbert? Goes well with The Plane Tree which was an earlier TOTM.

Hi,

How about 'Bell Bottom Trousers' - the sanitized version, of course.

http://back.numachi.com:8000/dtrad/abc/BELLBTTM.abc

This is from JCs ABC Tune finder.

If you would like the original words with all the naughty bits, try Wikipedia.

Future theme:
Popular session tunes

A bit like Barry Callaghan's "Hard Core English" book, based on tunes that are actually in current use, not gathering dust in books.
This would be interesting because everybody's regional version of "popular" is different.
It would also be easy as everyone will be able to play something they know.
I'd choose "representative of our local session"  rather than "likely to be known by everyone" but our Cambridgeshire Sunday night sessions are a bit like that anyway, delighting in obscure tunes that are absolute crackers and ought to be played more.

The 'local' session thing is a great idea. Will be intresting to see what is popular where. Will we have to say which session it applies to though?

I don't know any tunes suitable for melodeon (apart from the ones I have learned here!) but I would really like to learn more 'up and down the row' tunes that are lively and GREAT tunes. Any suggestions?

Pursuing the 'might come up in sessions' angle, how about Steamboat Hornpipe? I reckon it's a cracking tune and there's a definite hint of 'up and down the keyboard'!

"My Party Piece" TOTM?
