Sorry to not have anything musical for you last week. Crazy busy weekend with Monday as recovery day.
And now another Monday has arrived. I decided to go back in the stacks for this one: an old prog rock tune from that odd little band, Klaatu. Here’s “Long Live Politzania.”
Why this song, you ask? Ah, well, I play Nation States and got to name my capital city this morning. So, there you go.
It’s Fred Pohl’s birthday today! If you’re curious, check out his Hugo-winning blog. Happy birthday, Mr. Pohl!
So, what’s an appropriate video to celebrate the birthday of one of science fiction’s grand masters? How about a Carpenters’ cover of a Klaatu song? No, really. Here’s “Calling Occupants of Interplanetary Craft (The Recognized Anthem of World Contact Day).”
And, why not, here’s the original.
