Music for the post-apocalypse…

The music blog LA Weekly has put together a playlist for the post-apocalypse, so make sure your iPod stays charged. Here are my favorites (or click over for the full list and videos ):

  • The Sisters of Mercy, “Black Planet”
  • The Rolling Stones, “Gimme Shelter”
  • David Bowie, “Five Years”
  • Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, “The Weeping Song”

I would add:

  • Barry McGuire, “Eve of Destruction”
  • Blue Oyster Cult, “Don’t Fear the Reaper”
  • Bob Dylan, “All Along the Watchtower”
  • Coldplay, “A Rush of Blood to the Head”
  • Creedence Clearwater Revival, “Bad Moon Rising”
  • Crosby, Stills and Nash, “Wooden Ships”
  • Crowded House, “Don’t Dream It’s Over” (because of that scene in The Stand miniseries)
  • Morrissey, “Everyday Is Like Sunday”
  • Neil Young, “Don’t Let It Bring You Down”
  • Nick Drake, “Pink Moon”
  • Peter Gabriel, “Here Comes the Flood”
  • Pink Floyd, “Two Suns in the Sunset”
