SPACE DATE: 522, B19Z
Asteroid P-420

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

The President of Pop
Brings this song
To make your soul shine brighter.

Take it deep
Into your soul,
To make your soul a fighter

And fights for dreams,
(But not for schemes
To boost dumb clickbait pride).

Yeah, fight for dreams
(That turn to memes!)
But come from deep inside.

Or, in simple prose that even addled internet addicts can understand:

What if Fly/Shine were remixed by The President of Pop (from Asteroid P-420)? And...what if it included a sample from the "I Have a Dream" speech by Martin Luther King (from Earth)?

With a beat so "bad" you could hear it on (former planet) Pluto.

It would sound...almost exactly...

Like this...

Finally, The President of Pop (who hails from Asteroid P-420) sends, to the people of Earth, these greetings:

LYRICS

I have a dream today/Be free be free
I have a dream today/Be free be free

Yeah, once upon a time I was down on the ground
It might not sound profound but I thought I heard a sound
I didn't think "What?" I didn't go "Who"
But deep inside I knew just what to do:

I looked to my left, I looked to my right
But all I saw was perpetual night
Stars were way up in the sky
But no starlight was in my eye

I thought and I thought and I thought some more
I thought inside there must be heaven's door
But how to get it? How to reach it?
It's big as a whale, but how to beach it?
Or how to touch it or let it touch me
That's what I set out to see:

So if you hold your dream close to your heart
And every day do a little part
To dream your wish, and wish your dream
Things get better than a dream in a dream
Or a dream in a dream in a dream in a dream
Is not a thing that's too extreme

I have a dream today
(Be free be free)
[I have a dream today]
Yeah, once upon a time I was down on the ground
It might not sound profound but I thought I heard a sound
I didn't think "What?" I didn't go "Who"
But deep inside I knew just what to do:
(Be free be free)
[I have a dream today]

Yeah sometimes I fly like a bird
(I look to my left, I look to my right, I look to my left, I look to my right)
And everything all the normal people do seems absurd
Sometimes I live for days in a dream
(I look to my left, I look to my right, but all I saw was perpetual night)
And in my dream everything tastes as sweet as ice cream

If you’re Julie Ann
Or Jule Rose
Or a model with an attitude or a quest to pose
Or the worst student in your class
F#*! your teacher
Or if you know more about God
Than your preacher
It doesn’t really matter cuz the spirit inside you
Is going to take you on the right ride
I confide to you
Every little thing and each star will guide you
Nothing on earth will be denied to you

I looked to my left, I looked to my right
But all I saw was perpetual night
[Sometimes I fly like a bird
Everything all the normal people do seems absurd]
(yeah) Sometimes I live for days in a dream
And in my dream everything tastes as sweet as ice cream

I looked to my left, I looked to my right
But all I saw was perpetual night

I looked to my left, I looked to my right
But all I saw was perpetual night

If you’ve got defeat
Get off your feet
Stop walking down there on everybody street
Live in the sky
Way up high
Where your dreams can never die

Don’t be a loser
You can be a chooser
Or drink the Koolaid
Or be a boozer
Or set your eye
On the sky
And fly and fly and fly and fly

Be free be free
Be free be free
Be free be free
Be free be free

etc

about

The President of Pop

The President of Pop
Came to Earth
On a dove-fueled blue balloon.

From the moment he landed
He told himself,
"Not a mere millisecond too soon!

"In fact, a bit late,
But here I am
To fix a few things that are wrong.

"But I won't use my army
Nor my missiles or guns–
Just a deliriously weird new song."


First he wandered and wondered,
then he pondered, then he thundered:
