    If a song like 'Dance Monkey' was somehow sent to the year 2000, would a random person realise it was from 20 years in the future?

    What fascinates me A LOT is whether everyday people in the not-too-distant-past would pick up on not-so-obvious and subtle changes in their environment or non-physical things such as music, language, mannerisms if said things were not from their time. Would they instantly realise something was...
