So its 2012, supposedly the year the world will end because the Mayans calender stopped at this year.. Well whether you believe it or not, here is a few ‘end of the world songs’.
Apocolypse Please by Muse is a good song to listen to whilst armageddon is raining from the sky.
So by now the people are screaming in the streets shouting ‘Its the end of the world!!’ and the next song comes on, R.E.M. Its the end of the world as we know it.
In the distance you see giant mushroom clouds, and the next song on the playlist is by Pink Floyd called Mother.
You hear gun shots in the distance, and the next song Gimme Shelter by The Rolling Stones portrays exactly what the end of the world could look like.
Planes are flying over head now raining hell around you, but your still just chilling listening to your ‘End of the world’ playlist, and next to come on is Until the end of the world by U2.
You hear gun shots all around your house now, and a bomb screaming down near you, but its all good because you’ve got one more song on your playlist. The End by The Doors.
I hope the world doesn’t end this year, because that would absolutely suck! If it does, it was nice knowing you, have a nice day. 🙂
This is one of my favourite songs, the lyrics are fantastic so I thought I would Post them on my blog, enjoy 🙂
So, so you think you can tell
Heaven from Hell
Blue skies from pain
Can you tell a green field
From a cold steel rail?
A smile from a veil?
Do you think you can tell?
Did they get you to trade
Your heroes for ghosts?
Hot ashes for trees?
Hot air for a cool breeze?
Cold comfort for change?
And did you exchange
A walk on part in a war
For a lead role in a cage?
‘Awesome little solo’
How I wish, how I wish you were here
We’re just two lost souls
Swimming in a fish bowl
Year after year
Running over the same old ground
What have we found?
The same old fears
Wish you were here
To start it of, Wish you were here is deffinately at the top of the list, simple riff, deep lyrics, and a beautiful solo makes it perfect for just listening in bed and chilling out too.
Next song was voted one of the best guitar solos ever! Its an absolutely fantastic song! This is Comfortably Numb.
This Next song is similar to wish you were here, in the style of the song, quite calm, but what it talks about is powerful, this is Mother.
Time is another great song by Pink Floyd, I hard to think long and hard what to put as their top 5, because frankly they are such an awesome band and I love them all!
Finally is High Hopes, this version is David Gilmour live in Gdansk, and I chose this because I love the added little solo at the end which just seems to wrap up this beautiful song, the solo is fantastic as usual, check it out! 🙂
Hope you enjoy these songs as much as I do, which is a lot! Have a nice day 🙂
