"Polyphonic counterpoint?"  I've always referred to it as "cacophonic

Maybe that's tied in with my self-esteem issues, I dunno...

We've always played Marie in polyphonic counterpoint as a swinging
Dixieland tune. Marvelous fun. Even to the riff we use, on the first out
chorus, taught to the band by Pete Pepke years ago, by ear so don't ask
me for the music. Suspect it came from Dorsey, but can't verify that.
