Constantinople/Istanbul is a city that features prominently in my prep school World History class, and I use two pieces of pop music to teach about the city's changing names: "C-O-N-S-T-A-N-T-I-N-O-P-L-E" by Paul Whiteman & His Orchestra (1928) and "Istanbul (Not Constantinople" by The Four Lads (1953) (which is a deliberate response to the Whiteman recording). The students love this and wind up singing the two catchy tunes for days.
