Music Monday - In The Year 2525

I know this is going to sound a little weird seeing as how I'm not one who likes to participate in memes, tags and whatnots, not voluntarily anyway. So this is going to sound a little out of character for me. And don't you dare laugh at me! LOL!

I've seen this Music Monday meme (at least I think it's a meme) for quite some time now on loads of blogs while blog hopping. And some of the songs featured were kinda cool and reminded me of my long gone youth ... boohoohoo!

Anyways, I decided to participate in Music Monday for the very first time. (I can see you laughing over there!). But just a word of warning though. Don't be too surprised by some of the songs that I listen too.

I don't really have a preference of songs or singers (though I do have some all time favourites) but my Music Monday selections are going to feature some of the more urmmm, unique songs out there that caught my fancy. For me, as long as I like the song, I'll listen to it. They don't even have to be in English, mind you ... LOL!

So today, I'll start off my first Music Monday selection with this song by Zager and Evans titled In The Year 2525. Denny Zager and Rick Evans were a folk rock duo best remembered for their chart topping 1969 hit, In The Year 2525 (Exordium and Terminus).

I don't know how many of you have even heard of this song but I like this line in particular:

... In the year 9595
I'm kinda wondering if man's gonna be alive
He's taken everything this old earth can give
And he ain't put back nothing ...

It kinda describes perfectly what man is doing to this beautiful Earth of ours. And with the way we're screwing the Earth, 2020 may not even be possible let alone 2525! Until next week then :D

  10. Must remember to check the song when I get back. Anyway, I was supposed to recommend a radio station to you but that comment didn't get through the other day, so I'll do it here. Check out BFM 89.9 especially in the mornings weekdays... they have an awesome selection ranging from the 70's right up to almost current music. Can't listen to any other station now...
