A playlist for the end of the world

The End of the World by John Martin

The ol’ playlisting ground to a resounding halt when Brian got himself into what can only be described as “a MASSIVE HUFF” over Spotify’s user-unfriendly changes. Huffing is terribly unattractive behaviour, (especially for one who considers himself to be wise), so we decided to just let him be for a while.

In the meantime, though, a nice chap* called Harold Camping has kindly pointed out that it’s the start of the end of the world tomorrow, so we’re not wasting another playlist-making moment.

And we’ve found some spangly new software that makes it EASY and means anyone can listen to it, Spotify user or not. We’re hoping Brian will be coaxed back, tail feathers between his birdy little legs.

So in celebration of tomorrow’s Rapture, here’s a playlist of our favourite songs about the end of the world. Enjoy!
