In celebration of the fortieth anniversary of the Apollo 11 landing of the Eagle module, and in hopes for future and further manned exploration of the cosmos, we are happy to bring you our instrumental Time Stopped for free download. Written during the Machines Should Think People Should Work sessions, this song has been tossed around for awhile, looking for a good home. Well, I think I’ve found one.
Forty years is a very long time since man first stepped on a surface he wasn’t born on. Too long. Sadly, when Neil Armstrong set foot on the moon, he also unintentionally signaled the death knell of further exploration. The Space Race was won, why bother? Congress had better things to do with that money.
Unfortunately, human space exploration has reigned itself in, and we now hide in low Earth orbit. It’s time to let someone once again leave the cradle of this island Earth and step foot once again on foreign soil. Man must explore, whether it be by government funding or through private means. Let us not forget those dreams that we promised ourselves, and not let those bold Apollo explorers’ adventures to the Moon become an anachronism of what could have been.
We hope you enjoy the song.
