A Monday Afternoon Lyrics Post: Tomorrow's World.

Joe Jackson's album "Blaze of Glory" is an album for those of us who grew up in the '70s and '80s - lives fuelled by the promise of a tomorrow narrated by Raymond Baxter and Michael Rodd...
Tomorrow's World

Hey - did you ever see so many stars in the sky
Yeah - and can you imagine how many we can't even see
Imagine we're in the middle of the Galaxy
Yeah - Imagine how many blazing stars there'd be

We're gonna fly in Tomorrow's World
and there'll be cities on the moon
No one'll die in Tomorrow's World
and miracles will happen soon
In Tomorrow's World

Hey - d'you remember that rocket they blasted into God knows where
Yeah - with the pictures for someone to find
with chemical symbols saying
Hi how you doin' to the folks out there
Yeah - they put the Bach music in
left all the shit behind

Sometimes I think we should be sending out an SOS
But mostly I just think of all the things I can't wait to see

We're gonna live in Tomorrow's World
We'll live on power from the sun
We're gonna live in Tomorrow's World
And there'll be food for everyone
In Tomorrow's World
Tomorrow's World. It's our shared IGY.

I'm still proud of the fact that a project I was involved in was actually demonstrated on Tomorrow's World without failing...

Where I get all this from...

There are a lot of useful blogs out there, beyond LJ - and currently I'm regularly reading a couple of hundred of them (using the excellent NewsGator).

There's a link to an OPML description of my blogroll in the links section of my blog, but I thought it might be worth publishing the whole thing, Collapse )

Thank goodness for the OPML to HTML converter...
