You're The Top update

Tim Noah answers some of my our (as a lefty blogger, I'm all about the community building) questions about the parody of You're The Top. He thinks Irving Berlin wasn't funny enough (well, it's all in the delivery) but finds it hard to narrow down the suspects given that ""[A]t the peak of [the song's] popularity Cole received three hundred parodies a month."

Not addressed (though I specifically asked him): is "an arch in the Rome collection" a double-entendre/smutty allusion and if so, to what?
