  Futuristic Baby (Song)

I thought I had posted this song on my blog in the past, but I couldn't find it anywhere! So I asked T to upload it again. Press the little "play" button to hear it!

Futuristic Baby by Roger More

This is the first song written and recorded by our band, Roger More. It's a two-person band consisting of Terry and me, but we'll draft William to play drums as soon as he can keep a beat. Terry wrote this song, and he's performing everything except the backup vocals, which I sung.

We came up with the idea for this song when I was pregnant with William. Once we knew the due date (which turned out to actually be the day he was born), we were just flabbergasted that anyone would be born in 2009. It seemed to us like something that would be in a science-fiction novel, "the child was born on a self-contained travel pod in outer space, in the year 2009". So we would have various discussions about the "futuristic baby" in my womb, and eventually Terry came up with the song. Terry wrote the song about a girl baby since we didn't know if we were having a boy or girl until William was actually born.
