I wrote a tune for Stephen Harper! (No, it’s most definitely not a commission.) It’s a lively “jig”, in 5/8 with a couple of bars of 6/8, but usually not where you’ll hear it.

Newfoundland players would call “Stephen Harper’s Jig” a crooked tune.

As I said to a friend, adding a beat or two to throw a little bump in would make a mildly crooked tune, but I went for “the full Harper”.
