TSUNAMI (PART III of IV) WILL SINGAPORE EVER BE AFFECTED BY RADIOACTIVE FALL-OUT?
.
There are songs about nearly everything. According to Wikipedia, a 1969 song about radioactive fallout by *David Crosby, Stephen Stills, Paul Kantner (Jefferson Airplane) "seems to deal with the ever-present fears of an apocalyptic nuclear war." The words of the song depict the horrors confronting the survivors of a nuclear holocaust. It's called, Wooden Ships:
.
"Wooden ships on the water, very free and easy,
Easy, you know the way it's supposed to be,
Silver people on the shoreline, let us be,
Talkin' 'bout very free and easy...
.
Horror grips us as we watch you die,
All we can do is echo your anguished cries,
Stare as all human feelings die,
We are leaving - you don't need us.
.
And it's a fair wind, blowin' warm,
Out of the south over my shoulder,
Guess I'll set a course and go... "
.
*Crosby, Stills, Nash, (Young: 'Heart Of Gold') group: active from 1968.
