beautifully poetic or just ravings from another deranged hermit.

There are certain songs people never forget. They lurk in the back of your heads just waiting for the right moment to pop out and say “Hey! Remember me?”. Some people call them oldies but goldies, others refer to them as one hit wonders. I just call them for what they are. Superb creations of pure genius putting most artists today to shame! I loved the music from the 90s, partly because these are the songs I grew up with. By now, you might wonder. “What the hell is this guy talking about?”

I am talking about the lyrics for the song Zoo Babylon – Spaceman.

I haven’t heard this song in many years but I will never forget the chorus. Not because of the lovely melody or the music video. It is the lyrics! After all these years, I still can’t decide whether the lyrics are the ravings of another deranged hermit or if they are misunderstood poetry.

It is mostly the chorus that interests me. It basically goes “Spaceman, I’ve always wanted you to go into space, man!” It feels like something a squirrel high on something green would say. If you listen to the rest of the lyrics, you will just be more confused. Personally, I like it! Click Here for a direct link to the lyrics.

    my friend and I just spent about 2 hours on YouTube a few weekends ago looking up all the ‘oldies but goldies’ we could remember! So fun! It is because of a particular Kris Kross video from that night that people at her office have now adopted the phrase ‘wiggity wiggity wack’ as common language.

    Haha yes Sorush, I did figure that it made no sense so i went through with that comment. Things have to be clarified, sometimes.

    It is suprising how many oldies you actually remember when you sit there searching for them! Some that haven’t even crossed your mind in years.
    I can’t even say “Wiggity wiggity wack” without slowing down. Her office must be filled with closet-rappers with silk mouths. Can you say it fast three times? 🙂
