Hello, everyone. I found this song on the internet called "Terra Titanic", written in 1984 by German singer Peter Schilling. It's about the sinking of the Titanic and uses it as a way to describe the state of the world. Considering how terrible of a year 2020 has been, I thought now would be a really good time to make a post about this.

You can listen to the original version of the song in German here:

There's also an English version, too:

What do you think? Feel free to tell me your opinion of the song. Thanks.

A VERY 1980's sound. I personally like the German version better than the English version. It just "sounds" right. However, the song, in general, is definitely not a favorite of mine. I don't necessarily like the Celene Dion "My Heart Will Go On" tune, but I think it better captures the feel and historical age of the events. JMHO

For anyone interested…

Terra Titanic
Peter Schilling

All was dark and the sky was still
A blinding mist closing in
Unconcerned the young captain fills
His whiskey glass to the rim, to the rim

Like a crystal cathedral afloat on the tide
Comes a mountain of ice on the course to collide
While passengers sleep thinking God's on their side

Terra Titanic you're lost to the sea
S.O.S. if you can
Straight ahead lies your destiny
Soon you'll sleep in the sand

Face to face the white giant, boat
Sweet dreams turn cold, time is up
Music plays as the sirens blow
The last boat had better luck, better luck

The rats have the sense to abandon the ship
While the captain adjusts his tuxedo a bit
With his glass raised up as the ice water hits

Terra Titanic you're lost to the sea
S.O.S. if you can
Straight ahead lies your destiny
Soon you'll sleep in the sand

Terra Titanic you're lost to the sea
S.O.S. if you can
Straight ahead lies your destiny
Soon you'll sleep in the sand
