ID 1970s song: "Song of Love" melody is Baycloven's "Ode to Joy"

OK, I just saw “Conrack.” Anyway, can’t 'member exact title or artist of the song.

Nevermind. It was “Song of Joy” by Miguel Rios.

Baycloven?

Yeah he is the pig that wrote Da-Da-Da-DA! you know Baycloven’s fifth.
Pretty amazing guy, not often you come across deaf bacon.

WAG: You never read “The Water is Wide” or saw the movie Conrack (1974). Probably too regional a reference. Probably flew over everyone’s head.

Spot on…never read or saw those. I had half a clue that it was a deliberate reference that I was missing but thought I’d ask, just in case.

I got it! Hear that ol’ Death, knocking on the door?
