I am going to go a little outside my norm here and do a pop culture post. The other day I went down a musical rabbit hole on the web and stumbled across an interesting historical artifact regarding a song that I had recalled from my youth.
If you are a fan of techno-pop from the early 80’s, you may recall a quirky album from 1982 by Thomas Dolby – The Golden Age of Wireless. Lots of interesting songs with unique sound effect textures. Anyway, one of the songs that I remembered on this album was a song about a relative of his that died on on a WWII Submarine. ‘One of Our Submarines’ details the story as he understood it from his youth.
It turns out, with the declassification of records, the story behind this song was all wrong. On a recent post, he revealed the true story is far different than the one written in his song – you can read the true story here.
Just a reminder that history is always changing.
If you are not familiar with the song, you can take a listen here:
