Rapture: the mix tape

Certainly if there’s going to be a rapture, it should have an accompanying soundtrack. I put the request out to Facebook for suggestions. Here’s running list:

Track 1: Rapture, Blondie (If there must be a rapture, I request that both Blondie and Fab Five Freddy be present.)

Track 2: It’s The End of The World As We Know It (And I Feel Fine), R.E.M. Thanks, SarahNell.

Track 3: I Melt With You, Modern English. Props to Cathy.

Track 4: Until The End of The World, U2. Thanks, JBird.

Track 5: Satan Rejected My Soul, Morrissey. Thanks, Erin, I can always count on you for great music.

Track 6: Love Me Like The World Is Ending, Ben Lee. Props to Liz.

Track 7: In This Twilight, Nine Inch Nails. Woot, Hannah!

Track 8: Stairway To Heaven, Led Zeppelin. Of course, Patrick!

Track 9: Straight To Hell, Drivin N Cryin, Nicely played, Arch.

Track 10: Blinded By The Light, Manfred Mann. Yay, Jamin!

Track 11: Highway To Hell, AC/DC. Two times, Erin!

Track 12: Death Is Not The End, Nick Cave. Many thanks, Simon, with 6, count ’em, 6 submissions!

Track 13: If I Should Fall From Grace With God, The Pogues. Simon!

Track 14: The Next Life, Suede. Mr. Ashton, if you please.

Track 15: The World’s On Fire, The Housemartins. Simon.

Track 16: Kingdom Come, David Bowie. Nice!

Track 17: Hallelujah, Happy Mondays. Simon Ashton, music connoisseur.

Track 18: The End, The Doors.

Your suggestions are welcome. But you know, hurry, the end is near.

Ed. Note: Happy to include some latecomers to this rapture party.

Track 19: Ain’t Wastin’ Time, The Allman Brothers. Surely God loves The Allman Brothers, too, right Pat?

Track 20: Apocalypse Please, Muse. This, from a new mother. Thanks, Jess.

Track 21: Devil With The Blue Dress, Mitch Ryder. Anne sneaks one!

Track 22: Ashes To Ashes, David Bowie. Only because it’s Bowie will I allow 2 songs from an artist. Thanks, Pat.

Track 23: Are You Gonna Go My Way, Lenny Kravitz. Pat with a great song and memory!

Track 24: I Would Die 4 U, Prince. Seriously, there’s no rapture unless Prince is there.

And…two more.

Track 25: I’m Still Here, Steven Sondheim/Carol Burnett. Thanks, Tasha!

Track 26: When The Man Comes Around, Johnny Cash. Dante!

Track 27: Hallelujah, Handel Chorus. Well done, Cheryl.
