So, a local restaurant enjoined me to make a CLEAN 80s-90s pop playlist for them.
No probz. We gots da skillz.
It has been a WILD hit, drawing pedestrian customers in like crazy. People of all ages. It really is remarkable the power of music.
One of the songs on my list is Jamiroquai “Virtual Insanity” from ARSH 1996. Just now, this song rotated on the playlist, and… WOW. Check out the lyrics, folks. Usually I bold or underline pertinent lyrics, but with this song… it’s the WHOLE song. “When things are big that should be small”… SUBSIDIARITY MUCH???
Folks- EVERY WORD. See below the vid. It’s… amazing.
If you haven’t listened to Barnhardt Podcast #119 with the Covid Nurse, you should do that too. Reviews are legit “rave”.
Oh yeah, what we’re living in (let me tell ya)
It’s a wonder man can eat at all
When things are big that should be small
Who can tell what magic spells we’ll be doing for us
And I’m giving all my love to this world
Only to be told
I can’t see
I can’t breathe
No more will we be
And nothing’s going to change the way we live
‘Cause we can always take but never give
And now that things are changing for the worse,
See, its a crazy world we’re living in
And I just can’t see that half of us immersed in sin
Is all we have to give these
Futures made of virtual insanity now
Always seem to, be governed by this love we have
For useless, twisting, our new technology
Oh, now there is no sound for we all live underground
And I’m thinking what a mess we’re in
Hard to know…
