"Pickah!", was something that John Lennon says clearly (shouts... ) on the "Let It Be" album. You can find it if you listen.
Granted, an obscure reference, perhaps, but thought you might have known about it. It was well known back in the day, and commonly used among my friends and me, in honor of John, and then, later, in memory of him.
Pickah! That is a charming reference. On my framed Lennon NYC poster, across the bottom, I have taped collectible Jimi Hendrix picks ... A 'dead rocker's memorial', I guess.
This is a theme song from a NZ cartoon movie. If someone really wants the whole movie I will post a link. It takes time to find a good quality version. But, I know that humour does not export well as it is very culture-specific.
The movie was made after many years of news paper cartoons rather like snoopy. It is very much focused on NZ rural settings and those that are not experienced with this will miss a lot.
For example, the series was called "Footrot Flats". "Footrot" is a bacterial infection in sheep's feet. "Dog" is never given a name. He is the main role.
Once you've heard this tune, you oughta be in love with it.
In tribute to Aussie music, by Eric Bogle, a great anti-war ballad performed by Shane McGowan and the Pogues:
Another antiwar favorite by Fotheringay featuring Sandy Denny, may her beautiful soul rest in peace:
P.S. Peanuts is a long-time fave strip.

Here's a song that says, "May all beings be happy".
Mister Burl Ives sings a sweet rendition of a hobo's idea of Paradise, Harry McClintock's (1928) song "Big Rock Candy Mountain".
I remember him from childhood, too. He was special in some special ways. I recall from 'way back feeling that he was not "putting-on" as much as other performers; he seemed honest, serious, and genuine, and singing from the heart, and from real benevolence, not just for effect, and not for adulation. Like a kindly uncle, warm and attentive, and good-spirited. I felt I learned from him, or that he introduced some facets of the world.
