I'd Like To Teach The World To Sing (in Perfect Harmony)

"I'd Like to Teach the World to Sing (in Perfect Harmony)" is a popular song which originated as the jingle "Buy the World a Coke" in the groundbreaking 1971 "Hilltop" television commercial for Coca-Cola. "Buy the World a Coke" was produced by Billy Davis, portrayed a positive message of hope and love sung by a multicultural collection of teenagers on the top of a hill. "Buy the World a Coke" repeated "It's the real thing" as Coca-Cola's marketing theme at the time.

The popularity of the jingle led to it being re-recorded by The New Seekers and by The Hillside Singers as a full-length song, dropping references to Coca-Cola. The song became a hit record in the US and the UK.

Famous quotes containing the words perfect, sing, teach and/or world:

    Among those few, out of the sun,
    The woodspurge flowered, three cups in one.

    From perfect grief there need not be
    Wisdom or even memory:
    One thing then learnt remains to me,—
    The woodspurge has a cup of three.
    Dante Gabriel Rossetti (1828–1882)

    How shall we sing the Lord’s song in a strange land?
    If I forget thee, O Jerusalem, let my right hand forget her cunning.
    Bible: Hebrew Psalm CXXXVII (l. CXXXVII, 4–5)

    Man ... knows only when he is satisfied and when he suffers, and only his sufferings and his satisfactions instruct him concerning himself, teach him what to seek and what to avoid. For the rest, man is a confused creature; he knows not whence he comes or whither he goes, he knows little of the world, and above all, he knows little of himself.
    Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe (1749–1832)

    The predicate of truth-value of a proposition, therefore, is a mere fictive quality; its place is in an ideal world of science only, whereas actual science cannot make use of it. Actual science instead employs throughout the predicate of weight.
    Hans Reichenbach (1891–1953)
