I was checking out Focus's Hocus Pocus on YouTube, and found this video. At first I thought it would have to be another song with the same name... but no, it is actually Focus's song. Well, the flute is missed, as well as the Yodelling.

That was pretty freaking Cool but it would have been even cooler if they could've managed the yodeling.
I can understand your anger at me, but what did the horse I rode in on ever do to you?

Now, there's the chain of related videos. There's this one of Marillion covering the same song. And they do the Yodelling indeed... however, I must say not nearly as great as Thijs own vocals on this song.

Oh, and there's this version by Helloween. I must say this one is rather cool too, and it's the heavier of the ones I have found... and they do the Yodelling too (better than Marillion, for my taste). They even included the subtitles for the Yodelling (that was pretty funny). I'd love there to have been a video of them performing this song, it must have been pretty hilarious.

I always play the original when I DJ at the local rock and metal society events. All the semi-drunk people go bananas for the yodelling and general craziness.

Helloween version gets the win.  I always wished Type-O Negative would have done it in their totally sludgy goth style. Would have been hilarious.

Marillion are doing it live to be fair and they pretty much nail it apart from the yodelling (which is still good)
 
The other versions are okay though although the Helloween version is the one most likely to give me a headache
