"Candle on the Water" is an Academy Award-nominated song from the 1977 Walt Disney Pictures film, Pete's Dragon. It was originally sung by Helen Reddy.
Olive Snook and an unidentified a cappella group sing it in "The Legend of Merle McQuoddy", as a promotion for a resort and day spa for the Papen County Lighthouse. The rendition ends suddenly when Emerson Cod, from the safe side of his gun, informs them to "shut the a cappella up."
