There aren’t a lot of “science fiction” songs out there.
Some, yes, but most of them are whimsical. Not so with Zager and Evans song, “In the Year 2525”. A biting look at culture and environment, this song will leave you haunted.
Zager and Evans were one-hit wonders. Twice. That is to say that the song you are about to hear came from nowhere and made it to the top 100 in both the US and in England. But the group was never heard from again on the charts.
I wonder if you will find this song as visual as I do. It was recorded long before music videos, but it seems to make its own as it goes along.
Ladies and Gentlemen, Zager and Evans, In the Year 2525.
