The “Come Wander With Me” song was composed by Jeff Alexander and sung by actress Bonnie Beecher. The song is built into the story. It builds verse by verse together with the events in the episode. Parts of the lyrics are not complete, since some verses are not sung in full. The song has been used in several places since its 1964 broadcast. It was covered by The Gathering’s former vocalist Anneke Van Giersbergen on her solo record Air, released under the moniker of Agua de Annique. It was featured on the soundtrack of Vincent Gallo’s 2003 film The Brown Bunny. It was also used as background music in Belgian director Koen Mortier’s 2006 television commercial “Angels” for Dutch insurance company RVS. The ad shows flying men with open umbrellas inspired by René Magritte’s Golconda. Lacoste also used it in an ad for their fragrance “Love of PInk”. It was also covered by the band British Sea Power for their Man Of Aran soundtrack, and sung by Cedric Bixler-Zavala of The Mars Volta during the Omar Rodriguez-Lopez Group tour in 2011.
