Give Me Your Input! Please!

As some of the Oz community knows, 2007 marks the 50th anniversary of The International Wizard of Oz Club. Remembering my video I put together last year for L. Frank Baum's 150th birthday, I thought maybe another video, dedicated to the Club, may be a good idea...

SO... does anyone have any suggestions for what Oz/Oz-related song to use? If you name it, I probably have it, and if I don't, I can probably hunt it down.

Also, which video clips should I use? Here's a list of my Oz/Baum DVDs (some home-made, that will answer some questions) to let you know what I have to choose from...
  • The Wonderful Wizard of Oz (1910)
  • The Oz Film Manufacturing Company's movies (1914)
  • The Wizard of Oz (1925)
  • The Wizard of Oz (1933)
  • The Wizard of Oz (1939)
  • The Rainbow Road to Oz preview (1956)
  • The Shirley Temple Show: The Land of Oz
  • Six episodes from "Tales of the Wizard of Oz"
  • Return to Oz (1964)
  • The Wonderful Land of Oz (1969)
  • Journey Back to Oz
  • The Turkish Wizard of Oz
  • The Wiz (1978)
  • Dorothy in the Land of Oz (1980)
  • The Wizard of Oz (Anime, seems to be 1990's)
  • CTC The Marvelous Land of Oz (1981)
  • The Wizard of Oz (Lorne Green & Aileen Quinn, 1982)
  • The Tramps & the Wizard of Oroz (1984, Brazil)
  • Return to Oz (1985)
  • The Life & Adventures of Santa Claus (1985)
  • Cinar's Oz Movie Series (1987)
  • Dorothy Meets Ozma of Oz (1987)
  • The Wizard of Oz (Goodtimes Animated, 1990)
  • The Dreamer of Oz (Bootleg)
  • DIC's "Wizard of Oz" Series, most of it (1991)
  • The Wizard of the Emerald City (1994)
  • The Wonderful Galaxy of Oz (1995)
  • The Oz Kids Series (1996-97)
  • Adventures in the Emerald City: The Silver Shoes (1999, Animated, Russian)
  • Adventures in the Emerald City: Princess Ozma (2000, Animated, Russian)
  • Lion of Oz (2000)
  • Lost in Oz (Unaired Pilot, 2002)
  • Clips from Wicked (2003)
  • The Muppets' Wizard of Oz (2005)
  • The Patchwork Girl of Oz (2005, 3D animation)

So, with these 34 titles (and that has several series counted as 1 title each), we should be able to make something... and let's not forget the 3D animation software I use...

Did you ever get the DVD of the 73-74 Russian stop motion animated production?

Not yet, I'm afraid. I may have to re-order directly through their website.
