Perhaps the most famous version of this song, though, was performed by Tiny Tim, a singer and ukelele player who sang this particular song in a high falsetto voice.
You can see a TV spot featuring the song here if you dare! What does this mean for us lovers of music who wish to share great songs with others? Caregivers and facility staff members might be more familiar with the horror film context or Tiny Tim version of the song, too, so it helps to be aware of this before introducing the song. Can you think of any other songs that might have very different meanings for different generations or cultural contexts?

This song has been on high rotation at work for me as well. AND, I also just learned it!
However, last night I saw a commercial for Insidious that scary movie you mention. Now the song has been totally ruined for me and when I hear it I get chills!
I work with a similar population and really appreciate all your input. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
