"The Psychic Chorus"
Composed by Akira Ifukube
Lyrics by Akira Ifukube
Performed in Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla II

"The Psychic Chorus" (エスパー・コーラス,   Esupā Kōrasu, lit. ESPer Chorus) is a song featured in the 1993 Toho Godzilla film, Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla II. Written by composer Akira Ifukube, its lyrics are based on the Ainu language. The song plays twice during the film: in the scene where a choir of psychic girls sing to BabyGodzilla, and later when Miki Saegusa telepathically convinces Baby to leave with Godzilla. The song's melody is also heard earlier when Baby's egg hatches, and an instrumental version plays over the end credits.
