Predictions of the future have been common throughout history. They have been made by everyone from wackos to geniuses. But none have been as fun to revisit as this little musical look into the future, all the way to the year 2000 (apologies to Conan O'Brien, and YouTube haters). For more goodness by the folks behind "Music 2000", please see the following, as well as this look into the future of computer games.

Wait, okay. Is that Music 2000 thing real? Was that guy seriously predicting the rise of rap music?

I can't think straight after the first two performances.

I don't know how I feel about this... I just don't... know...

That series of Look Around You was essentially a spoof of Tomorrow's World, a long running technology/inventions show on the BBC...

Actually, maybe Look Around You was closer to a pastiche, looking at this...
