No one would have believed,
in the last years of the nineteenth century,
that human affairs were being watched from the timeless worlds of space.
No one could have dreamed that we were being scrutinized,
as someone with a microscope studies creatures that swarm and multiply in a drop of water.
Few men even considered the possibility of life on other planets and yet,
across the gulf of space,
minds immeasurably superior to ours regarded this Earth with envious eyes,
and slowly and surely,
they drew their plans against us.
Bam bam bammmmmm.
Hello! Did you know it has been 40 years since Jeff Wayne's War of the Worlds was released?
Have you heard it before? When did you first hear it? Have you seen the live show?
War of the Worlds was the first album I bought, because it had a rad picture of a tripod melting a ship (the image in the youtube thumbnail). Also I was a fan of HG Wells at the time, though I must confess that I have never read the book.
