If man is still alive.? If woman can survive, they may find that in the year 3535 you ain't gonna need to tell the truth, tell no lies. Everything you think, do and say, is in the pill you took today.

Now it's been 10,000 years
Man has cried a billion tears
For what he never knew
Now man's reign is through
But through the eternal night
The twinkling of starlight
So very far away
Maybe it's only yesterday...

In the Year 2525 - Zager and Evans
ARTIST: Zager and Evans
TITLE: In the Year 2525


In the year 2525
If man is still alive.
If woman can survive, they may find.


In the year 3535
Ain't gonna need to tell the truth, tell no lies.
Everything you think, do and say, is in the pill you took today.


In the year 4545
Ain't gonna need your teeth, won't need your eyes.
You won't find a thing to chew.
Nobody's gonna look at you.


In the year 5555
Your arms hanging limp at your sides.
Your legs got nothing to do.
Some machine doing that for you.


In the year 6565
Ain't gonna need no husband, won't need no wife.
You'll pick your son, pick your daughter too.
From the bottom of a long glass tube. Whoa-oh


In the year 7510
If God's a-comin, he oughta make it by then.
Maybe he'll look around himself and say.
Guess it's time for the judgment day.


In the year 8510
God is gonna shake his mighty head.
He'll either say.I'm pleased where man has been.
Or tear it down and start again. Whoa-oh


In the year 9595
I'm kinda wonderin if man is gonna be alive.
He's taken everything this old Earth can give.
And he ain't put back nothing.Whoa-oh



Now it's been ten thousand years
Man has cried a billion tears.
For what he never knew,
now man's reign is through.


But through eternal night.
The twinkling of starlight.
So very far away.
Maybe it's only yesterday.


In the year 2525
If man is still alive.
If woman can survive, they may find.


In the year 3535 {fade}

Ahh, that songs brings back memories. When I was in junior high (middle school), our entire earth sciences class had to listen to this song. After the god-awful thing finally ended, the hippie teacher asked if that song made us think about the earth and how we affect it.

Me: "That song sounded like a bunch of hippie crap."

"What?!?!?"

Me: "What a load of garbage. The planet will still be here. What a bunch of sissies. The principal's office? Yeah, I know where it is."

Another trip to the office was the day they showed us a propoganda film about Kent State. The hippies were portrayed as loving and normal, while the "establishment" was just a brown shirt away from being portrayed as nazis. After the film, the teachers asked us what we learned.

I spoke up again: "If you throw bricks and start fires, you'll get shot. You'll deserve it too. Principal's office? Got it."

I HATED THAT SONG


ETA: And just for dragging it back into everyone's consciousness, I will now post the lyrics for the Captain & Tennille's utterly repulsive "Muskrat Love"



Muskrat, Muskrat, candle light
Doin' the town and doin' it right in the evenin'
It's pretty pleasin'
Muskrat Suzie, Muskrat Sam
Do the jitterbug at a Muskrat Land
And they shimmy, Sam is so skinny

And they whirl and they twirl and they tango
Singin' and jinglin' a jangle
Float like the heavens above
Looks like Muskrat Love

Nibblin' on bacon
Chewin' on cheese
Sam says to Suzie
Honey, would you please be my Mrs
Suzie says, yes, with her kisses
Now, he's ticklin' her fancy
Rubbin' her toes
Muzzle to muzzle
Now anything goes as they wriggle
Sue starts to giggle

And they whirled and they twirled and they tango
Singin' and jinglin' a jangle
Floatin' like the heavens above
Looks like muskrat love

There may easily still be a United States...

...but it will be just one little country down on the backwater of the Earths surface.

Hopefully by then a population of 300 or so Billion people are living comfortably in thousands of orbiting colonies. Some in the Earth/Moon system Lagrange points, but others orbiting Mars, and the Lagrange points of the Earth/Sun, Mars/Sun, and Venus/Sun systems. Some few colonies (for short term habitation only since they would be too far from the Sun to support themselves) would be scattered through the astroid belt where engineers happily ground up astroids and comets for the raw materials to support all those colonies.

Since this thread is turning in to songs we love to hate, stick this one in your head and hit play

Sweet Caroline by Neil Diamond


Where it began, I can't begin to knowing
But then I know it's growing strong.
Was in the spring and spring became the summer.
Who'd have believed you'd come along?
Hand touching hand, reaching out, touching me, touching you...

Sweet Caroline, good times never seemed so good.
I've been inclined to believe they never would, but now I

Look at the night and it don't seem so lonely.
You fill it up with only two.
And when I hurt it hurting runs off my shoulders.
How can I hurt when holding you?
Warm touching warm, reaching out, touching me, touching you...

Sweet Caroline, good times never seemed so good.
I've been inclined to believe they never would, but now I

You take that back, right now!

FPPE is a great tune. It spawns a terrific philosophical debate, I might add. Does the flying monster eat purple people? Or, is it a purple monster that merely eats normal colored people?

I guess we'll never know.

Ok, since Muskrat Love was posted, you leave me no choice.................cheesiest 2 songs of all time:



Spring was never waiting for us, girl
It ran one step ahead
As we followed in the dance
Between the parted pages and were pressed
In love's hot, fevered iron
Like a striped pair of pants

MacArthur Park is melting in the dark
All the sweet, green icing flowing down
Someone left the cake out in the rain


I don't think that I can take it
'Cause it took so long to bake it
And I'll never have that recipe again
Oh, no!

I recall the yellow cotton dress
Foaming like a wave
On the ground around your knees
The birds, like tender babies in your hands
And the old men playing checkers by the trees

MacArthur Park is melting in the dark
All the sweet, green icing flowing down
Someone left the cake out in the rain
I don't think that I can take it
'Cause it took so long to bake it
And I'll never have that recipe again
Oh, no!

[break]

There will be another song for me
For I will sing it
There will be another dream for me
Someone will bring it
I will drink the wine while it is warm
And never let you catch me looking at the sun
And after all the loves of my life
After all the loves of my life
You'll still be the one

I will take my life into my hands and I will use it
I will win the worship in their eyes and I will lose it
I will have the things that I desire
And my passion flow like rivers through the sky
And after all the loves of my life
After all the loves of my life
I'll be thinking of you
And wondering why

[extended break]

MacArthur Park is melting in the dark
All the sweet, green icing flowing down
Someone left the cake out in the rain
I don't think that I can take it
'Cause it took so long to bake it
And I'll never have that recipe again
Oh, no!
Oh, no
No, no
Oh no!!
/////////////////////////////////

Love, love will keep us together
Think of me babe whenever
Some sweet talkin' girl comes along, singin' a song
Don't mess around, you just gotta be strong

Just stop, 'cause I really love you
Stop, I been thinkin' of you
Look in my heart and let love keep us together

You (you, do do do) you belong to me now (do, do do do)
Ain't gonna set ya free now (do do do)
When those girls start hangin' around, talkin' me down
Hear with your heart and ya won't hear a sound

Just stop (stop, stop) cause I really love you (really love you)
Stop (stop, stop) I been thinkin' of you (been thinkin' of you)
Look in my heart and let love keep us together, whatever

Young and beautiful, but someday your looks'll be gone
When the others turn you off, who'll be turnin' you on
I will, I will, I will, I will be there to share forever
Love will keep us together
I said it before and I'll say it again
While others pretend
I need ya now and I need ya then

Just stop (stop) cause I really love you (really love you)
Stop (stop) I been thinkin' of you (been thinkin' of you)
Look in my heart and let love keep us together
Whatever (a-ba-da whatever)
I will (ever), I will (ever), I will (ever), I will (ahh)

<Synthesizer solo> (Da da da da, da da da da, da da da da)

You better stop (stop) cause I really love you (really love you)
Stop (stop) I been thinkin' of you (been thinkin' of you)
Look in my heart and let love keep us together
Whatever (a-ba-da whatever)
I will (ever), I will (ever), I will (ever), I will (ahh)

<Clapping and whistling>

(Da da da da, da da da da, da da da da)
(Sedaka is back!)
(Da da da da, da da da da, da da da da)
