As for the rabbit hole in the room....

Yes, I did get stuck on the theme from "The Last Unicorn" (will admit to shedding a bucketload of tears actually) and there are loads of good covers, just none of them that I could find that were Canadian.

There are videos accredited to Loreena McKennitt which aren't (I think it's Declan singing, at least that is what the comments seem to think). Honestly, I think she would do a good job of it but alas, she has not done so.

Here is another one I think you would appreciate given the group that recorded it.

Ninja Sex Party from "Under the Covers" 

There are also techno covers, folk covers and Kenny Loggins because of course he did (totally in his wheelhouse) from "Return to Pooh Corner"

Anyway, thanks for listening

See you next week.
