All I can think of when listening to this tune is 'Con Air'. Remember the scene where Steve Buscemi's character—a lukewarm version of Hannibal Lector—is holding a sing-along with an infant in the desert, while Cyrus the Virus (John Malkovich) is refuelling a plane full of jailbirds?
From memory, this tune/moment has a profound affect on Buscemi—he elects to cut out his cannibalizing ways and instead devote himself to God, or some such cause.
It doesn't make me want to turn my life around, but Odetta's creepy baritone is always something to behold.
