Sing like your life is dependent on it? Oh, yeah! Doomsday Believers know for certain two things; the end is near and the end has a song, no matter your lyrical tastes.
Doomsday Believing Top Six Songs:
1. The End. The Beatles, Abbey Road:
And in the end
The love you take
Is equal to the love you make.
2.Run Like Hell. Pink Floyd, the Wall;
They're gonna send you back to mother
In a cardboard box
You better run.
3. Hells Bells. AC/DC, Hells Bells;
'Cause if Good's on the left,
Then I'm stickin' to the right.
4. It's the End of the World as We Know It. R.E.M.;
Offer me solutions,
offer me alternatives
and I decline.
5. Bad Moon Rising. Credence Clearwater Revivial, Green River;
Hope you got your things together.
Hope you are quite prepared to die.
Looks like we're in for nasty weather.
One eye is taken for an eye.
6. God's Gonna Cut You Down. Johnny Cash, America V: a Hundred Highways; Workin' in the dark against your fellow man.
But as sure as God made black and white.
What's down in the dark will be brought to the light
Back, just before and around eight track and AM radio. Songs mesmerized us with our fate, our sins and our doom!
In ending, a personal favorite would then have to be the obvious. It happened many moons ago and is as true as the meaning of music:
Don Mclean, American Pie-
No angel born in Hell could break that satan's spell
And, as the flames climbed high into the night to light the sacrificial rite,
Satan laughing with delight the day the music died...
Doomsday is coming NH. Do you feel fine?
