I heard Floyd Cramer's "Last Date" on the radio yesterday. I am convinced that this is as close as you can get to a musical source for Weird Al Kankovic's non-parody "One More Minute". The verse music is different, but the chorus is eerily similar. "Last Date" also sounds a lot like "You Can't Always Get What You Want". Lots of web sites have MIDI versions, some of which actually do a somewhat good job of capturing Cramer's piano technique.
