I recall as a kid hearing a tape with some song that went, "in the year tav-shin-ayin-gimel..." [5773], does that ring any bells? What was supposed to be special about that year?

Is this not a guessing game question? – Seth J Sep 21 '12 at 18:08

The song you’re thinking of is Country Yossi’s parody of In the Year 2525. (The lyrics were included in the Tishre 5773/September 2012 issue of Country Yossi Magazine.)

There’s no significance to 5773 except for the rhyme.

Thank you! (Well now I know ...) – Shalom Sep 19 '12 at 17:02
Not true! 5773 years ago the world was created! I think that's pretty significant! – Seth J Sep 21 '12 at 18:09
