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

Damn. I think you're going to have to make that into a short film Bucky. That's perfect.

Re: My Way

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.

Re: My Way

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!

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.

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.
