This song was originally a jingle created for the TV ad, the Hillside Singers was the name given to the ‘group’ that was assembled. What they did was record several of the people who appear in the ad singing the song. Next they recorded the backing track and edited the sound to make it seem that they were all together singing as a group. The New Seekers recorded a full length non-coca cola version of the song and had a smash hit with it. The Hillside singers also had success with it is the US, some of them reformed as ‘Treehouse 10’ in 2009. The link above is for the New Seekers Version
