BALTIMORE - Tired of R.E.M.'s "It's the End of the World" repeating in your mind as you prepare that " just in case" box of supplies for the apocalypse?
Here is ABC2's top 5 list of songs for the end of the world. What are your favorites?
"Baby I'm Yours" sung by Barbara Lewis Why not focus on your love rather than the stars falling from the sky? That is what Lewis did in her 1965 hit.
"99 Air Balloons" by Nena (English version) This melody of this protest song is so light and airy, that unless you really listen to lyrics you wouldn't know that they're looking for a souvenir of the world that was once here.
"Apocalypse Please" or "Emergency" by Muse mocks religious fanatics that hope for the "end of the world" to prove their beliefs are correct. Anyone practicing the Mayan's religion today?
"Last Day on Earth" by Duran Duran reminds us that any day could be your last day on earth, and you should live every day like it was your last.
The Man Comes Around by Johnny Cash Cash refused any editing on this song, that shares his interpretation of the Biblical view of the end times. He obviously didn't think the end was coming on December 21, 2012.
