Sunrise Serenade: Wardance for Wooden Indians

This morning's Sunrise Serenade started off with a digression.  The first song into my head was actually "Streetlight People" by Journey.  Sometime between getting up and eating breakfast, however, "Wardance for Wooden Indians" by Raymond Scott made its way into my head.  Click on the song title for the album page on emusic.  Sample Clip at Track #19.
