Every class should tell a story — and have a soundtrack. Your suggestions for songs to add to our "mix tape" are welcome.
Deltron 3030 - Upgrade (A Baymar College Course)
This album is one of my favorites and many of the songs could be a part of the mixtape for this course (it all takes place in the year 3030) but I thought "Upgrade (A Baymar College Course)" was the most obvious, especially since we were just talking about upgrading our brains!
Peter Gabriel - The Tower That Ate People
Our symbiotic relationship with technology in one heavily distorted song that doesn't sound much like Peter Gabriel at all.
tell it like it is/'til there's no misunderstanding/when you strip it right back/man feed machine, machine feed man
VNV Nation — Carbon
A track for those "dark!Jim" days when we're all feeling particularly sardonic about the doom we seem to be bringing on our own heads.
and in a thousand years what will be our legacy — a million lights that no one could see?
VNV Nation — The Farthest Star
And one more in a somewhat more hopeful vein:
we possess the power/if this should start to fall apart/to mend divides, to change the world, to reach the farthest star
Anyway, I've got way too many futurepop and industrial jams and will add a couple more through the semester — stay tuned.
