Back in late 1999, we were thinking less about partying and more about whether or not the modern world was going to collapse at midnight on December 31st, ravaged by the Y2K bug. Sean Connery solved that one for us, as Alan Anton points out in this podcast...
But the dawning of a new millennium was also time for a little reflection on life, the universe and everything, personally and globally, and that mood was caught perfectly in "Thousand Year Prayer", a song from "Open".
A meditation on thankfulness, love, the natural world and the way we've ravaged it, Jimi Hendrix and calling it all a draw with God, Michael Timmins helps us find the way through the song, along with Alan Anton.
