The Dancing Days

I don’t intend this post to be about music all that much, but today while I was driving to work I was listening to Led Zeppelin’s album House of the Holy (spectacular album, enough said) and I got to the song “Dancing Days” and I got to thinking to myself, “when will The Dancing Days be?”  My best guess is that The Dancing Days will be a time period of roughly six and a half to seven years following The End of Days.  The Dancing Days will be a glorious time, sure much of the world will have been decimated by the apocalypse but the survivors of the “rough years” will really be looking forward to having some fun.  I imagine that the The Dancing Days will be somewhat like a musical where people randomly break out into song and dance on just about any matter.  The amazing thing will be how well synchronized and choreographed all of this will be (also singers will amazingly have perfect pitch).  For a time this will be pretty novel, and then it will shift to just plain fun, but by my calculations after around six years or so of all this singing and dancing people are going to start saying “hey doesn’t all this singing and dancing seem a little fruity?”  Even Broadway Actors and Actresses will be getting to the point where they are like “okay, this is kind of boring now, lets try . . . um . . . plumbing!  Yeah, plumbing might be fun!”  So inevitably The Dancing Days will end and people will move on to bigger and better things (I’m thinking of something like The Months of a Million Meatloafs or The Awesome Pipe Cleaner Sculpture Years).  Still, in whatever time period follows The Dancing Days, people will undoubtedly look back with nostalgia on the years where any Joe could start tap dancing along just because he got a parking ticket.  It’s the way of the world, one day something like Pogs if fuckin’ awesome and the next people are asking “what the hell are Pogs?”  But there will always be some people who remember . . . The Dancing Days will not be fast forgot when their time passes.
