This past weekend I saw This Is The End. For how dumb it could have been, it was a fantastic comedy that I highly recommend catching when y’all get a chance. The main characters were mostly in survival mode during their bout with the Apocalypse, but it got me thinking what I would do in the face of the end of days. Listen to music. Obviously. So, what would I listen to as the world was coming to an end? Some of my all-time favorites. Granted, Spotify keeps me from including the Beatles on the playlist, so take it with a grain of salt. Yes, I did include two 20+ minute jams on there, because I thought maybe it would mean the world lasting a little bit longer. Also, because they’re so incredibly awesome. Suffice it to say, if I were staring the Apocalypse in the face, I’d want to do a fair amount of rocking out before I met my demise.
- “It’s the End of the World As We Know It (And I Feel Fine) – R.E.M.: Obviously.
- “Loving Cup” – The Rolling Stones: Probably my favorite track on Exile on Main St., one of my top-5 favorite albums. Ever.
- “All in Time” – Umphrey’s McGee: Appropriately named, with some face-melting rock.
- “Changes” – Jimi Hendrix: Not the obvious Hendrix choice, but one of my personal favorites. Always dug Buddy Miles’ vocals here.
- “You Enjoy Myself” – Phish: Another 20+ minute jam for one last chance to hippy dance.
- “Tom Sawyer” – Rush: Needed at least one last chance to throw up some rock hands.
- “Tupelo Honey” – Van Morrison: I heard “Into the Mystic” at a bar on Friday night and was reminded how much I loved Van Morrison.
- “Black” – Pearl Jam: One of my favorite bands, and it was another good chance to squeeze in a live tune.
- “Kiss” – Prince: Needed some funky tunes before all was said and done (literally).
- “Dear Mr. Fantasy” – Traffic: Seemed like an appropriate way to finish.
