I’ve been challenged by Inquirer columnist Dan Rubin to come up with an End Times playlist (in case you don’t know it, many people believe the world will end next Saturday, or the Rapture’s going to happen, or something). His playlist is here. (He already took all the obvious ones…)
Eve of Destruction, Barry McGuire.
Gimme Shelter, Rolling Stones.
Earth Died Screaming, Tom Waits.
Mushroom Clouds, Love.
Five Years, David Bowie.
The End, The Doors.
Beds Are Burning, Midnight Oil.
London Calling, The Clash.
Four Winds, Bright Eyes.
Temptation of Adam, Josh Ritter.
Tables and Chairs, Andrew Bird.
And When I Die, Laura Nyro.
Sons and Daughters, The Decemberists.
The End, The Beatles.
