World’s Fair Wednesday – 1982 Energy Express

In Knoxville at the 1982 Expo, a train would make its way around the fairground blaring a synthesized anthem of energy.  The train was called The Energy Express and it began its nightly voyage at 9pm, singing this catchy tune:


Kind of has a “poor man’s EPCOT” feel to it, in a good way.  Anyway, this song was put on a record and sold about half a million copies at the fair.  Bets on how many of those records still exist?
