Deep Cuts: Songs For the End of the World

atomic_testWell, that happened. Last night you either got the election result you wanted or the one you dreaded. Either way, the sun still rose this morning, your car (probably) still started, and your shoes still fit.

Congratulations to those of you who picked a winner. The rest of you? Well, maybe today feels like the first day of the end of the world. It isn’t, mind you, but I get it, so here are some “end of the world” songs:

“End of the World,” Skeeter Davis.

“End of the World,” Talk Show.

“End of the World Is Coming,” David Hilder.

“(I’ll Love You) Till the End of the World,”  Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds.

“Waiting For the End of the World,” Elvis Costello.

“Until the End of the World,” U2.

“Sound of the Apocalypse,” Black Bonzo.

“Apocalypse Dreams,” Tame Impala.


So there you have it — 8 songs with which to enjoy your apocalyptic nightmare, or your happy future. It’s up to you, really.
