A key word that you will see:

Fragmentation: a mental process where a person becomes intensely emotionally focused on one aspect of themselves, such as “I am angry” or “no one loves me,” to the point where all thoughts, feelings and behavior demonstrate this emotional state, in which, the person does not or is unable to take into account the reality of their environment, others or themselves and their resources. This is a term that my therapist and I use and is on the continuum of dissociation.

"In the year 2525 (exordium and terminus)" by Zager and Evans

To tell you how strange of a child I was, this is one of the first songs where I memorized the lyrics. I literally grew up with music all around me, so I know the late 60's music and 70's music very well. This is a one hit wonder by Zager and Evans that spent six weeks at the number one spot on the American Billboard Hot 100 Chart in June 1969 and in the UK in August 1969. (I guess, I have always liked Science Fiction type stuff.)

First time I'm hearing that. I like it. My co-workers looked at me funny the other day when I bought myself a Mamas and the Papas cd pfft, hey just because you weren't born when they were popular does not mean you cannot enjoy.

Clueless said...

I agree. To me good music is good music no matter when you were born or the music was made. And, Mamas and the Papas are just classic!!! No one does harmony or songs like that anymore, yet they have influenced so many other artists!!

Fun song! I always feel so left out when discussion turns to music. I was only allowed to listen to Country music growing up (controlling father in Texas - what can I say?). So I know next to nothing about other music.

This song was kind of cool, though.

Clueless said...

Yes, I thought this was a fun song. I love just the music too. Sorry, about the country music. I've never been a fan except for the pop/country stuff. However, can they ever tell a story!!!

I always found this a kind of depressing song, but always loved it anyway. It's an easy one to sing along too and now it's going to be stuck in my head all day.

At least it brings back good memories.

Clueless said...

Hi Mike, I'm glad that you liked it. Me too...yes, post it because it would be fun.

Hi Bradley, It is an apoclyptic (?) song, so it is depressing, but it makes you think and just sounds cool. Glad it is a good memory.

Hmmm...I think somebody better known did a cover of this...I'll have to google it. What's funny is that it's about the future, and yet it's so 1960's..

Clueless said...

I know that there have been some more recent cover versions, but I haven't heard them. Thanks for visiting my blog. How did you find me?

Oooh, I remember this song! It really resonated with me when I was growing up though I couldn't tell you why. It just did.

Clueless said...

I'm glad you enjoyed it too.
