End Tunes: “Rapture”

Facebook users are rocking the apocalypse today. I’m guessing that the most obvious choice is REM’s repetitive and annoying “It’s the End Of The World As We Know It (And I Feel Fine)”. That song would be so much better if the chorus only played once. Music nerds are posting lists of good doomsday tunes elsewhere — on Twitter, you can follow along through the hashtag #endtunes, a term  I swear I thought up all on my own for this post’s headline. Well, I guess it’s just an obvious phrase, isn’t it. Fine. I’m not bitter. (One time I invented the word “neologasm” and was all pleased with myself until I typed it into Google and saw it had already been invented 87 billion times.)

Here’s Blondie’s “Rapture”. H/T Tanis Fowler.
