A nostalgia video was doing rounds on WhatsApp showing the snippets of the original album, along with current images of the singers.
My daughters peeped in.
Oh, I know Michael Jackson!
Hmmm, I’ve heard this name too.
Oh! So this what Bruce Springsteen looked like!
And then the questions:
Wait, what are they singing about?
Is this about 9-11?
1980s…. was there a pandemic then also?
They were singing about making a brighter world in the 80s and then we went on further with the climate mess to generate more famines and floods, and then came global terrorism, and then the current pandemic.
Damn. What would they sing about the world today?
