Music Monday moves with The Tragically Hip ~ In A World Possessed By The Human Mind (@thehipdotcom)

“In A World Possessed By The Human Mind” is the first single from the Hip’s new album Man Machine Poem, which became available June 17, 2016.

I bought the album but haven’t had a chance to listen to all the tracks. If the entire album is like this song, then it should be a very strong collection. Perhaps, there is even a hint of of what Gord Downie has been experiencing in these lyrics.

Just give me the news
It can all be lies
Exciting over fair or the right thing at the right time
Everything is clear
Just how you described
The way it appears, “A world possessed by the human mind” …

One piece of good news to report, the Hip’s final concert in Kingston will be broadcast and streamed — commercial free — on CBC Television, CBC Radio One, CBC Radio 2, cbcmusic.ca and CBC’s YouTube channels.

Save the date – August 20th at 8:30 PM EST.

Have a great week, and I hope you’ve enjoyed The Tragically Hip’s music over the past weeks. Sending healing, good vibes to Gord Downie and the band for their upcoming tour.

  2. Oh nice song …. I need to listen to this again. I agree with the first comment too. I like the act of writing and editing even though I know it’s not real. But it’s nice for me to imagine that’s how singers write.

    It is great news that it will be televised. It feels historic – the end of an era of our generation. A good night to be with friends! xo

  4. It may seem to be a genre of music that’s not in line with my normal taste, but I’m liking this particularly because the lyrics, which grab me. The promo video is superb. I am hooked and will be taking a look at this album.
