We hope you had a great Back to the Future Day! While plenty of us were celebrating with movie marathons, wearing puffy down vests, or yelling at Pepsi for selling Pepsi Perfect early, rapper Kosha Dillz celebrated by writing us a theme song for the day. The New Jersey native pays tribute to the time-travel comedy series with a hip-hop song sampling “Power of Love” by Huey Lewis and The News, which was featured prominently in Back to the Future.
The first verse of the Kosha Dillz anthem pays tribute to the films themselves, their cultural impact, and Kosha’s personal love for the series. As the song continues, however, Kosha Dillz compares life in 2015 to the seemingly idyllic world of 2015 in Back to the Future Part II. He mentions our lack of flying cars and rehydrating pizza while also decrying the creation of the selfie stick. Kosha makes a point to talk about how we should worry more about making life in our world better for ourselves than obtaining luxurious technological advances, proposing we focus on using technology to find cures for fatal diseases instead of lamenting over our lack of flying cars, hoverboards, or special versions of Pepsi.
This seems to be a fairly consistent message among many who celebrated Back to the Future Day. While the world may not have turned out exactly how Bob Gale and Robert Zemeckis predicted, that doesn’t mean we should look down on the advancements the world has made, or not strive for greater ones. Maybe flying cars will be something to look forward to on Back to the Future’s 60th anniversary in 2045.
