So many songs, so little time.
To hear it from the followers of the Christian broadcasting network Family Radio, Saturday will mark the beginning of the end. Those who’ve been selected for salvation will move on to heaven, but the rest will experience unspeakable suffering until the world ends on October 21.
With all this doomsday talk, we at CNN have been contemplating our favorite end-of-the-world songs - music to listen to as the world falls apart, if you will. Here is our top 10 list, to get the soundtrack rolling:
“Eve of Destruction” by Barry McGuire
“It’s the End of the World” by REM
“Until the End of Time” by 2Pac
“The End” by The Doors
“Until the End of the World” by U2
“Waiting for the End of the World” by Elvis Costello
“Doomsday Clock” by Smashing Pumpkins
“Apocalypse Please” by Muse
“The End of the World” by Skeeter Davis
“The Man Comes Around” by Johnny Cash
What hits would you add to the mix?
I do not even know how I ended up here, however I thought this put up used to be great. I do not recognize who you're however certainly you are going to a well-known blogger should you are not already. Cheers!
