Congrats, Aaron!In the Year 2525
I call bullshit on Pinball Wizard. There's a chorus. Also, Bittersweet Symphony is basically all chorus.Congratulations, Mister Aaron! In The Year 2525 is notable for not having a chorus. Here are some other hit songs with no chorus:
1. Squeeze – ‘Up The Junction’ Glenn Tilbrook’s tale of the rise and fall of a relationship takes in a party, pregnancy, marriage, cheating and divorce – all within three minutes. So it’s hardly surprising that they decided to chuck the chorus – how else would they fit everything else in? 2...www.nme.com
Damn! Congrats Aaron!Congrats, Aaron!
The answer is "In the Year 2525 (Exordium & Terminus) ", a #1 smash for the folk rock duo of Denny Zager and Rick Evans in 1969. The duo met at Nebraska Wesleyan University in 1962 and became friends. In 1964, Evans wrote "In the Year 2525". Four years later, the duo recorded the song in a studio in the middle of a cow pasture in rural Texas and released it on a small label, Truth Records. Radio stations in their home state of Nebraska picked up the song and it became a huge hit there. It caught the attention of RCA Records, who rereleased the song nationally in 1969. Within three weeks of release, '2525' was the #1 single in America and stayed there for six weeks. While at #1, man landed on the moon and Woodstock became the most-famous concert festival in history.
Sadly, Zager and Evans never could repeat their #1 success and broke up two years later. Rick Evans died in 2018 at 75 while Denny Zager is alive and well and making custom acoustic guitars in his home state of Nebraska.
I might be off for awhile because of house stuff. Be back soon!
