John F. Kennedy in For All Man Kind
This is taken from a famous speech President Kennedy gave as it appears in the beginning of For All Man Kind, a documentary about first manned flight to the moon.
I’m posting this for two reasons. The first is because, with the background music and Kennedy’s choice of words, the whole thing sounds a little 1984-ish. The second is because I want to see if any of you recognize the last couple of lines.
If you can name the song that samples the end of this speech, you and I are the same person.
Update: See the answer here.
