This may sound very negative but which song would you play at the end of the world, a soundtrack to the apoalypse. Personally I would have Blackout by muse. It has a sort of calmness to it.

"Golden-Vein" from the Cocteau Twins "Twinlights" ep

(possibly the most beautiful song ever)

"Fight Fire with Fire" by Metallica - or maybe "Battery" or "The Four Horsemen".

Presuming it might last a little while, I'd probably add "Surf Nicaragua" by Sacred Reich, "Peace Sells - But Who's Buying" by Megadeth, "Angel of Death" by Slayer, and to finish off, ELP's first album (side 1).

It might be a bit scary - but what a soundtrack.

"Yackety Sax", the Benny Hill Theme tune.

At the end of the world: "Kyric", the first track of "Echoes", by Lacrimosa. Majestic sadness, and more sadness  .

All:

Y'all must be forgetful: wouldn't Supper's Ready be the perfect thing, since the final section is actually taken from the Revelation, and is called "Apocalypse in 9/8?"

Peace.

A song from GYBE!'s 'Yanqui U.X.O.' - a bit sombre, yet filled with exquisite string arrangements. Lately it has become my fave GYBE! album, and I think this music conveys both the sadness of ultimately dying along with the Universe, and at the same time, a certain kind of " trascendental hope" for "better things" to come in a different outer dimension.

There are many, as Maani said Supper's Ready is one of them, but my first choices are:

  1. 666 (Aphrodite's Child): Narrates all the book of Revelations.
  2. Heaven and Hell (Vangelis): Dark and mysterious.
  3. Journey to the Centre of the Earth (R. Wakeman): Pompous and gothic.

All of Muse's 'Absolution' album with Aphrodites Child The Four Horseman and ELP's Karn Evil 9 rounded off with Genesis 'Suppers Ready'(for the 'apocalypse section' of course!).

It's a funny question really.Only prog fans would spend their last day on Earth listening to their ELP,Yes and Genesis albums rather than trying to get layed!

'Lady in Red' by Chris De Burgh..

You could then celebrate the fact that you will NEVER hear that song again..

Ultimately bored by endless ecstasy!

The world is about to end, man! Fire and Brimstone time! The Beast, walking abroad. The Four Jockies of doom etc. I wanna see scantily clad nurses and puny little bald guys chasing  the person responsible for it all (insert world leader of choice) around a field in fast-mo, to the sound of "Yackety Sax"! It's the tune I want played at my funeral, as the box slides through the curtains. (my daughter says "No Way!", but it's what I want.)
