You Drank The Water? There's Nothing We Can Do!

A non-speaking 7 year old with mutant mind powers is used to shelter a population from nuclear war, and while being there, life becomes a psychic/technological surveillance nightmare. The newest HBO series? No, it's Planet P Project's [Wikipedia] 1984 rock opera album [Discogs] Pink World [Wikipedia]. The full album [1h19m] is a terrific 80s rock journey; the accompanying video album [2 songs, 8m40s] was nightmare fuel for many of the MTV generation. I'm not alone in loving this album. [Blogspot] Lyrics for the album from Genius.

Planet P Project is Tony Carey, ex-Rainbow keyboardist, doing side projects. He also records and releases under his own name.

We did this previously 8 years ago, but most of those links are dead now. And, well, times have changed a bit, and it feels a bit more vital today for a variety of reasons.

Probably will be a series now that the glorious genre of rock song screen adaptation has been awakened

If we are listening to Tony Carey, mention must be made of the exceptional song Fine Fine Day, which came out around the same time if my memory is correct.

I loved Fine Fine Day, and I didn't know there was more to Planet P!

This album contains far too many writing prompts to mention.
