The Boy in the Bubble
- Each book of the Tales of the Continuing Time series by Daniel Keys Moran includes a reference to the song; in The Long Run, for instance, there's a bomb in a baby carriage.
- Phantom 2040, episode "Lasers in the Jungle": The episode title is a phrase from the song, as is Graft's comment that "we live in days of miracles and wonders".
Diamonds on the Souls of Her Shoes
- In The Simpsons episode "Simpsons Safari", where the family visits Africa, it turns out that a chimpanzee biologist has a whole collection of diamonds, or as Marge puts it: "Even on the soles of her shoes."
