versions of "Riding to Work in the Year 2025"


There are a few versions of this terrific song floating around out there.
Some have the line, in the first verse,
"In reflection you can see, you're standing paralyzed; your suspended disbelief has lied."
Some of them don't have it, and " and bright" goes right into the bridge/chorus.

Are there any FL geeks in the house that might know the history of releases of this song (i.e. Race for the Prize single, various editions of Zaireeka, etc), and what's the deal?
I much prefer it with this second line.

Btw, I also like the live arrangement they played on the Terror tour, which lacked the "You're Invisible Now" chorus. Different feel to the song.

look the sun is rising... oh, shit. Mar 12, 2014 - 3:19am
