|Listen to the Song:
I used to believe in sentiment but that just hurt my mind
So now the things I think of are of futuristic kind
I used to believe magic places where no true time exists
But all those childhood fantasies are things I’ll truly miss
Can you imagine a simple place where noone knows your name?
Someone should’ve listened long ago to that crackpot fool on the hill
Can you remember a special time when men were really men?
Nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, na, na, na, na, nah

Analysis: This was at the time, and remains to this day, one of the finest Wahray and Soul songs ever recorded. It strikes a perfect balance between the past and future of the project with the dusting off of the old harpsichord for the main riff and the new synth for the overtones. The title also plays into this “retro” feel, while the drum sound is probably the best I ever captured on tape.
