The phrase "shine on, shine on" in the lyrics is similar to "we all shine on" from John Lennon's "Instant Karma
." This phrase, according to Stephen King, inspired the title for his book (and later, movie) The Shining
, where "the shining" is a kind of telepathy. In the film Twister
, The Shining
plays at the drive-in when a twister hits.
