mix → this is the way the world ends


(a mix for the end times)

the mythology of the end of the world;
Almost all mythologies involve some sort of belief in the end of the world. Major variations between mythologies include timing, method, and reason for this end. Belief in a coming 'end of times' is such a widespread part of mythologies that there is an entire subset of theology devoted to it: eschatology, 'study of the last'.

this mix;
A recurring theme across many mythologies is that the end of times is not ultimately a terrible thing: the world is cyclic in nature. I must be destroyed in order to recreated. With that in mind, I tried to select songs that include both dread and hope. The title is from T. S. Eliot's The Hollow Men.

listen here

  dog days are over >> florence + the machine
        leave all your love and your love leave behind

  here’s your future >> the thermals
        god reached his hand down from the sky
        he flooded the land then he set it on fire

   sympathy for the devil (the neptunes remix) >> the rolling stones
        anastasia screamed in vain

   spaceman >> the killers
        you know that I was hoping
        that I could leave this star-crossed world behind

   time is running out >> muse
        how did it come to this?

   immigrant song >> fringe field (cover of led zeppelin)
        so now you’d better stop and rebuild all your ruins

   last chance at love >> foxy shazam
        this is my last chance at love
        it’s all I’ve ever dreamed of

  calamity song >> the decemberists
        you and me and the war of the end times

   time >> blonds
        time is on our side
        everything’s alright

   it’s the end of the world as we know it (and I feel fine) >> r.e.m.
        it’s time I had some time alone
