FlinterFile: The New Seekers- I’d Like To Teach The World To Sing
In 1971, the New Seekers recorded a song which was originally used in a Coke commercial. The commercial was a success and radio stations got questions to play the complete song. However, that version did not exist… Therefore, they put together a group to sing it, called the Hillside Seekers. The New Seekers recorded it at the same time, causing the song to be in two versions in the charts (the other version was number 13 in the US). Though it was a big hit, the singers got just their session fee (2000 pounds), and the rest went to charity and their management… The song was a number 7 hit in the US and even number 1 in the UK!
