Fin del mundo.

El otro día, platicando de música con una amiga, empezamos a jugar un hermoso juego improvisado que yo decidí llamar "El soundtrack del fin del mundo".

Funciona así:

Imaginen que estamos en el 2012 y que un cometa está a punto de caer sobre la Tierra, matándonos a todos.
Los científicos de todo el mundo ya dijeron que las posibilidades de supervivencia son del 0%
Absolutamente nadie sobrevivirá.

Por alguna razón, los presidentes de todas las naciones pusieron bocinas gigantes en todas partes, para poder transmitir mensajes finales y que sean escuchados por todos, sin importar dónde se encuentren.

De alguna forma, ustedes han sido elegidos para escoger el soundtrack del último día sobre la tierra.
Cada hora, una canción del soundtrack será tocada en todas las bocinas del mundo, dándole a la humanidad una última playlist.

El chiste del juego es que tienen que escoger 24 canciones. Las 24 últimas canciones que el mundo escuchará, y que deben representar una despedida final.

It's a fun game, ain't it?

En fin, después de mucho pensarlo, éstas fueron mis 24 canciones del fin del mundo (con links incluídos)

Liolia Kincaid dijo...

Loved it, pero te faltó 'Zero Sum', de Nine Inch Nails.

"And I guess I just wanted to tell you, as the light starts to fade,
That you are the reason that I am not afraid.
And I guess I just wanted to mention, as the heavens will fall,
We will be together soon if we will be anything at all."

Ninja Peruano dijo...

Ooooh, mucha razón, no sé cómo se me pudo ir Reznor...
My bad.

This could cause them to grow less, flower less, and maybe even die.
Place organic kitchen waste, as well as yard
waste such as grass clippings, leaves, and the like into a compost bin.
In this same respect, mulch aids in the prevention of soil splashing onto plants.

Everyone who is into style depends on a great stylist
to look good and help with hair issues and problems.
My hair doesn't always look good when I'm going to attend openings and red carpet
events. The professional hair merchandise of Loreal are effectively currently being sold all
more than the world in about one hundred thirty different countries.
