Songs for the end of the World

So, here we are waiting for the end of the world (on a Friday to ruin your weekend, why couldn’t it be on Monday?) and while we wait we can listen to some music fit for the occasion. Here’s my selection:

Ball of Confusion Love and Rockets

Sure, you can listen to The Temptation’s version as well.

Monster The Automatic

Because that’s what you’re going to be saying in the aftermath: “What’s that coming over the hill? Is it a monster?” And yes, it will be a monster and it’ll eat you.

The Killing Moon Echo & the Bunnymen

It’s a great song and I like the idea of the Moon killing everybody.

Cities in dust Siouxsie and the Banshees

It’s about the destruction of Pompeii, but it’s applicable.

Burning down the house The Talking Heads

Since we are into the burning of stuff…

Fire Arthur Brown

“You’re gonna burn!”

Eve of destruction Barry McGuire

The Turtles also have a great version.

Psychobitches outta hell HorrorPops

‘Cause that’s all that’s gonna’ be left. And zombies.

She’s not there The Zombies

Told you there were going to be zombies.

The Death Song Marilyn Manson

This is a good one to finish with, since death is so final.
