What should be TechniCity's theme song?
Digital Man by Rush
Apr 29, 2013 Glenn B5

'Constant change is here to stay' certainly applies to our future cities. Read some of these lyrics, can you believe this came out in 1982? This song makes me think about living in a vibrant city with its conversations, information, the strangers and arrangers...

His world is under observation
We monitor his station
Under faces and the places
Where he traces points of view

He picks up scraps of conversation
Radio and radiation
From the dancers and romancers
With the answers but no clue

He'd love to spend the night in Zion
He's been a long while in Babylon
He'd like a lover's wings to fly on
To a tropic isle of Avalon

His world is under anesthetic
Subdivided and synthetic
His reliance on the giants
In the science of the day

He picks up scraps of information
He's adept at adaptation
Because for strangers and arrangers
Constant change is here to stay

He's got a force field and a flexible plan

It also helps that live, Rush may be one of the best acts ever known. Solid choice - like the lyrics and can see how useful they are for the course!
