I thought I would share this with my fellow ATS'ers..
Whilst checking out the singles over on iTunes, I couldn't help but notice there were a few song titles with an "End of the World Esque theme," its
not many but to find them all currently in the top 200 singles, is something I have never come across before, in fact come to think of it, finding one
a lot of the time is quite hard to come by.
Before I share them with you, a question to ponder...
Are these artists tapping into the collective paranoia of people ?
Or, are they just singing what sells ?
This first video is by Noah, and the Whale, the song is called L.I.F.E.G.O.E.S.O.N, and is taken from their aptly named album "Last Night On Earth"
(seriously I didn't just make it up lol
Next up Britney Spears, and her offering Til the world ends (its ok I understand if you don't want to listen to this one, I didn't lol)
My final offering is a personal fave of mine, its off the wall, and I can't comperhend the lyrics because I don't have super "Emo" powers,
nevertheless I love it (thank goodness music is subjective)
Not Ready to Die by Avenged Sevenfold, give it a chance as it has a dicey intro, but the crazyiness will reign supreme
Hope you enjoy, and feel free to post your own similar themed offerings
Im a musician, I write songs about how I feel, things that interest me, so if a song writer is interested in the end of the world, or has thought
about it and feels an emotion connected to the possability, its not unlikely that they would write a song about it.
plus "the end of the world" can also symbolize losing everything, or everything changing.

But anyways, this is what i would listen to if the world was ending.

LOL, yeah I didn't craft the itunes top 200 singles, I just thought it was a bit of a precedence to see them all there, as I have looked at this
chart many times, and never seen these themes singulary, let alone there being 3.
I could have made it worse, and added Katy Perry's E.T lol
