* The stop motion animated inserts of the 1970s and early 1980s featured some truly awesome synthesiser music. Among others:
** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XGdPVyEuTvs Never has a kerosene oil lamp been so awesome,]] the pieces filing out of the box to a drumbeat before the synth kicks in to add just the right sense of ceremony to the lamp's assembly. It takes a haunting yet delightful turn once the lamp has assembled, the wick is lit, and the studio lights are dimmed so that we can only see by the light from the lamp.
** Al Jarnow's 1980 short film [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pg1a2Kwi67U "Architecture",]] which re-creates various architectural styles from antiquity to the present day using coloured building blocks, is accompanied by a terrific score by Tom Perri, who mentioned in Website/YouTube comments that he and his team had to wire the ARP 2600 synth with which they were working in ways that had never been done before to bring the sounds in Perri's head to life. And it complements the animation beautifully. The music for the transition from the stone circle to the Greco-Roman temple in particular sounds like the triumphant homecoming of a conquering hero or heroine.

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1KhhG-tLuCg Worm Soliloquy]] is one huge parody of the song "Soliloquy" from ''Theatre/{{Carousel}}'', with a sample of "You'll Never Walk Alone" thrown in. John Raitt, who originated the role of Billy Bigelow in the Broadway version of ''Carousel'', the character who sings "Soliloquy", even sings ''this'' version. Now that's a dedicated ShoutOut!
