End of the World!

I wanted to embrace the whole, “December 21st, end of the world.”  The best way I thought of was to post my favorite disaster songs.  Advance apologies, if the end of the world does come 🙂



MC Frontalot:    Disaster

Act II. Molten lava is chasing them around.

Big blue bolts of lightning spring up from underground.

But our hero and his team have some hope for a cure:

“If we can just get this crew into the center of the earth,

We can install a nuclear device then detonate it.

My findings indicate that this will stave off devastation.”

Decemberists – The Calamity Song

Had a dream, you and me and the war of the end times

And I believe California succumbed to the fault line

We heaved relief as scores of innocents died

REM:   It’s the End of the World as We Know It

Team by team reporters baffled, trumped, tethered, cropped

Look at that low plane, fine then,

Uh-oh overflow, population common food, but it’ll do

Save yourself, serve yourself, world serves it’s own needs

Listen to your heart bleed dummy with the rapture and the revered and the right, right

Vitreolic, patriotic stand, fight, bright, light

Feeling pretty psyched

Killers — Spaceman

It started with a low light

Next thing I knew they ripped me from my bed

And then they took my blood type

It left a strange impression in my head

Jars of Clay — Flood

But if I can’t swim after forty days

and my mind is crushed by the thrashing waves

Lift me up so high that I cannot fall

Lift me up

Weird Al Yankovic – Christmas At Ground Zero

Well it’s Christmas at Ground Zero

There’s panic in the crowd

We can dodge debris while we trim the tree

Underneath the mushroom cloud

Kopecky Family Band Disaster

Blow down your household

Climb out your window

Slide down the ladder
