Just to let all know, Dovid Stein, the great singer, was at the Ohr Naava annual shabbaton performing for the melava malka. He has a particular affinity for that song and has for years. At the same time Dovid was singing that song Motzoi Shabbos, Mr. Yess was niftar. Eerie and amazing. You can see the performance of the song on youtube.
