NIL8 – Land of the Lost – Lyrics Challenge

So, It’s been so long since I’ve made a post here that I thought I’d challenge myself. One of my favorite bands, N.I.L.8. (from Springfield, IL) has a song called “Land of the Lost”, which basically sums up childhood for me. Well, maybe a little. Some of the references in the song are probably a few years before my time, but I remember the re-runs.

Anyway, I’m going to take each reference and post an article related to it.

Have you never heard the song?! Here is is on Spotify.

And here’s the lyrics:

Land of the Lost
My eyes are crossed
crossed up real good
I guess I should
focus on the tv, fuzz on fuzz
flood my field of vision static buzz
seventies boob tube, scrappy doo
banana splits, boogaloos, & witchie poo

I’m in the land
sigmund holds my hand
snap crackle pop
I’m in the land

lost in old school cartoon show
sid and marty krofft should know
pufnstuf as in HR
not so close, but not too far
so good to the last drop in say hi
conjunction junction and i
don’t burn out, don’t fade away
this ain’t boston not LA,
I’m just lost

Land of the lost
I’m in the land of the lost
I’m in the land of the
sigmund holds my hand
snap crackle pop
I’m in the land of the lost
land of the lost
land of the lost
I’m in the land of the lost

just like going home
hot wheels max chrome
inch high private eye
8 track, hifi
lost

land of the lost
land of the lost
I’m in the land of the lost
I’m in the land of the
I’m in the land of the
I’m in the land of the lost

lost in old school cartoon show
sid and marty krofft should know
pufnstuf as in hr
not so close but not too far away…
don’t fade away
I’m in the land of the lost
I’m in the land of the lost
I’m in the land of the lost
