I am going crazy trying to remember who sings this song...it goes like this: "In this time of confusion people preparing themselves for armageddon and without even knowing they're keeping fit (fit for the fire). And they're wearing adidas, oh yes the're wearing the Puma....(chorus) jogging on the sand in babylon land"

Can someone tell me who sings this song please!

peace and love

some tennis shoe company ought to license it. im sure im not the first to think of that so send the royalty checks elsewhere. i cringe whenever i hear that song, esp in light of "life and debt" and the "free trade zones" where those shoes are assembled. talk about your babylons.

Sorry TR-808, but this is a cloying, horrible record from the great Freddie Mc, encouraging young Jamaicans to give up their Clarkes boots for obscene trainers. And as for that trite little line: "jogging on the sand in a Babylon land..." Yecch. It is one of the few Jamaican 7" I took back to the shop.

And I love Freddie too, I have about 60 7" and perhaps eight or ten albums by him.
