Harvey Ball is famous for his invention of the Smiley. In 1962, the State Mutual Life Assurance of Worcester, MA (now known as Allamerica) purchased Guarantee Mutual Company of Ohio. The merger resulted in low employee morale. In an attempt to solve this, Harvey Ball was employed in 1963 as a freelance artist to create a smiley face to be used on buttons, desk cards, and posters. The use of the smiley face was part of the company's friendship campaign which aimed to get employees to smile while using the phone, and doing other tasks. The buttons were highly popular and at more than 50 million Smiley Face buttons were sold by 1971. The smiley has been described as an international icon.

Ball never applied for a trademark or copyright of the smiley and earned just $45 for his work

Originally appearing as the final track on Houses of the Holy, this song was written about the writhing ocean of fans in front of the band as they played onstage. "Singing to an ocean, I can hear the ocean's roar..." The song changes radically toward the end, making a transition into a rollicking 50's-style doo-*** romp. You won't be able to help bouncing around a bit yourself as the piece grinds toward its explosive conclusion. Originally appearing on the American tour in 1972, "The Ocean" also showed up as an encore in Europe and America in 1973.

#5 Lohn wrote this song while in India studying transendental meditation. It was about one of the girls in the group. Her nema was prudence farrow (Mia Farrows little sister) And she was into meditation bigtime she was always in her tent and no one could get her out.
