40 Year Itch: Que Beleza

By 1975, Brazilian R and B star Tim Maia had become involved in a religious group called Cultura Racional that held the belief that humans are really dirty aliens who will be rescued by spaceships as long as they find balance in nature by reading a book called Universo Em Desencanto (Universe in Disenchantment).  He quit drugs and made beautiful music with instructional lyrics. His 1975 album Racional Vol 1 has spoken word interludes that bang you over the head with his cult's messages:   

     “Listen you all we’re gonna tell you the most important thing that you ever heard in your life, you never heard that before. We came from a super world, world of rational energy and we live in the empty world, world of animal’s energy. Read the book, the only book, the book of good, universe in disenchantment and you’re going to know the truth.”
