The richest girl in town.
What song would you want playing while the world ends?
From: haddayr 2009-09-14 05:05 pm (UTC) Call me old-fashioned
The Choral Section of Beethoven's Ninth.
I've thought about this a lot. Maybe something by Godspeed You Black Emperor, but more likely this song "HK Farewell" by Placebo, who aren't really usually the most apocalyptic band. But it is perfect.
San Francisco as sung by Rufus Wainwright
i would like to be overwhelmed by the joy the song has brought me and the heartbreaking beauty of losing it all... i think i am in a really homo mood today
That's a really good choice!
This is the Day by The The!

Hallelujah - Jeff Buckley
on endless repeat loop until the last two humans kill each other with femur-bone clubs.
Damn. I think you're going to have to make that into a short film Bucky. That's perfect.
I think way too much about this time.
Ever see a thing about an old lady who hoards cats? God is a crazy old lady who hoards people.
Though only 33 for a few months I am fairly certain that I am an old lady who hoards cats...at least since I've moved to the South. That analogy works for me.
As a queer person I have one adult name change coming to me....I'm going to add God to the list of things I am considering.... :) Hell, if I have to call people Spider and Radio they can call me God. Make that film!
There was a fabulous goth tranny in the early '90s called God's Girlfriend. "hi, i'm god's girlfiend." used to see GG with Danielle Willis. good times.
How's the world ending? Because I think I wouldn't want the music to be all "John Williams tells you how to feel", but something that offers a sort of bittersweet contrast... that means if it's a bang, I want something sweet and melodic and a little sad (I remember the movie Miracle Mile used Tangerine Dream, and I'm sure that's informed my thinking on some primitive level), but if it's a whimper, then let's go with some Beethoven.

As usual, Gordon wins! Well, IMHO.
The 7th movement of the Brahm's
. It make difficult things make sense.
Everything in it's right place - Radiohead :)
Tracy Chapman's "Heaven's Here on Earth". I'm sure I'll think of a different one again.
Creepingivy's idea gave me chills. AND I'm going on grooveshark.com and listening to all of the songs the people listed here.
a vote for Bittersweet Symphony and another for Sympathy for the Devil :)
