Musical Interlude: Eli's Coming (1969)

Laura Nyro wrote "Eli's Coming" for Three Dog Night, which hit the charts in 1969. The producers of ABC's short-lived Music Scene weaved a comedy sketch around the song, and as we join the video in progress, we are in the midst of a seance conducted by a psychic (Lily Tomlin, Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In). Oh, I've always wondered what this song was really about, and now I know. Creeeeee-py, man!
