While every sane and right-thinking person on this planet greets this morning’s news with a collective “WHAT THE FUCK?!” I received a “Top 5 songs that reflect 2016” message.
In the spirit of ‘think less, post more’ here are those that, in no particular order, leapt to mind.
Tool – Ænema
The lyrics… the timing signatures…
Bob Dylan – A Hard Rain’s a-Gonna Fall
REM – It’s The End of the World As We Know It (And I Feel Fine)
The Rolling Stones- Gimme Shelter

Eels – End Times

*No. No there hasn’t.
