When I bought Miles Davis's "Bags Groove" (1954) back in 1957, I heard 
Miles quote a song in his solo, but I didn't know the title, yet I was 
familiar with it. Having recently obtained the Rudy van Gelder 
remastered version CD, with a retrospective note by Ira Gitler, which 
actually refers to the title, although he calls it "My Little Gypsy 

It's taken me 56 ('count 'em!) years to learn the title!

Any similar experiences?
