Well, you gotta admit that many of these classic PIs are begging to be parodied. A musical parody is not out of the question. They've done it with westerns...

"Dancing shiv to shiv" is a good title, and I offer it for free.

by Irving "Buzz" Meeks:

Heaven... I'm in heaven, And my roscoe roars so loud that I can hardly speak. And I seem to find the happiness I seek, When we're out together dancing shiv to shiv.


Now all you've got to do is write it. OK, make it Spenser and Hawk and be done with it.
