From BuzzFeed. Robocop three quarters of a century ago.
No generation can imagine what will happen in their own lives, let alone those of subsequent generations. The following is the least bad cover I could find of John Prine's song "Living in the Future." (I found three, and they were all kind of painful)
We are living in the future, I'll tell you how I know:
I read it in a newspaper 15 years ago.
We're all driving rocket ships and talking with our minds,
wearing turquoise jewelry and standing in soup lines.
And by way of apology for a poorly tuned guitar, a weak voice, and at least two instances of poor lyric memory, here is the master himself showing you how to (...well, almost) do it right, with a very sweet and funny song. The happy enchilada song. HA!
("That's the Way the World Goes 'Round") I'm not much of one for poetry... I just get lost (my fail, not that of poets). But "naked as the eyes of a clown" has always been an amazing line to me. Could anything be more naked?
