from Anthology CD Album (Warner Bros. Records Inc. & Rhino Entertainment Company [Sire] 1999) —Music bed for back announcement/voiceover: chorus "one of us" is borrowed from cult classic movie "Freaks," by Todd Browning, also included in Shannon & The Clams "Cult Song."
Paul Giovanni “Maypole”
from The Wicker Man (Soundtrack) (Silva Screen Records 1973) —From one of my fave movies, _The Wicker Man_, which partly inspired Burning Man. Somewhat comedic and surreally disturbing, about 1 man's search for a missing girl in a UK pagan commune. With Christopher Lee, Edward Woodward, etc.
The New Seekers “I'd Like To Teach The World To Sing (In Perfect Harmony)”
from I'd Like To Teach the World to Sing Other Single (Elektra Records 1971) —Introduced by Coca-Cola as part of a cultish "It's a Small World" multicultural ad campaign during 1971, re-recorded by The New Seekers without the product references.
