I don't mean to be melancholy. But there are so many songs, sad, melancholic, profound describing or in spirit about the end, when it all comes undone, last days, apocalypse, war or whatever name you may have for it. For me personally it just draws my heart and attention to what I think is important in the long run. I also just tend to find them fascinating.

This first one I'd like to share is one I'd never heard before. My Dad told me about it and sent me a link.



I've always loved this one





I wish I could think of others right now but my mind just isn't there this evening. Please add to the list.

I can think of two others OTOH...

The Eve of Destruction...... Barry McGuire

A Hard Rains Gonna Fall...... Bob Dylan

Good people sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

Someday your life will flash in front of your eyes. Make sure it is worth watching.
