y2k songs againgreenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread
(There was a fun thread a while back about song titles and lyrics relevent to y2k. I couldn't find the old one to re-enliven it, so here's a new one.)
Today I share with y'all the fruits of my mispent youth, and I'm not talking cirrhossis and short-term memory loss. Here's a bunch of y2k songs..........
Out of time - Rolling Stones. It's too late - New York Dolls. There come's a time - Neil Young.
Hangin' on the telephone - Blondie Last train to Clarkesville - The Monkeys.
Geographical... Say goodbye to Hollywood - Billy Joel Down and out in new york city - James Brown Motor city is burning - The MC5.
Friday on my mind - The Easybeats. Take the money and run - Steve Miller Band. When tommorrow hits (it'll hit you hard) - Mudhoney. Are you ready for the country? - Neil young. The Midnight special - Credence Clearwater Revival. Dark Suprise - Radio Birdman. Sabath Bloody Sabath - Black Sabath. Ball of confusion - The Temptations. Here come the Bastards - Primus. A Town called Malice - The Jam Time we left this world today - Hawkwind.

This one runs through my head quite often these days:
"It's the end of the world as we know it, it's the end of the world as we know it, it's the end of the world as we know and I feel fine.--REM (I don't particularly feel fine but it's a catchy tune, don't you think?
