R.E.M., It's the End of the World as We Know It (And I Feel Fine)

Posted in R.E.M., Youtube Favs on May 20th, 2011 by Willie

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Part 67 is all about the Apocalypse, the end of the world AS WE KNOW IT, because as you know, the world is supposedly ending on Saturday according to some radio host in Denver or something.  What better way to ring in the end of all things then with R.E.M.’s 1987 alternative rock classic, “It’s the End of the World as We Know It (And I Feel Fine),” from Document. My plans for the end of the world?  Well, first I’m gonna listen to this song, then I’m gonna go to midtown for an appointment, and then get home later and make delicious homemade pizza for my close friends.  I also plan on ingesting some Habiro Twin Cherries candy, some Blue Moon beer, and some Nestle homemade cookies as well.  Yea, I’m ringing in the end of the world with a lot of junk food.  Wooo!  Anyway, this song is one of R.E.M.’s best, a real slacker rock anthem for everyone not afraid to die in a religious hell fire earthquake tomorrow.  Enjoy.
