Anyone else feeling a little Y2K déjà vu lately? I feel like I can’t be the only one.
For weeks now, the news has been filled with reports about Harold Camping and his followers prepping for May 21st, the date which will apparently be the end of the world as we know it. Despite getting this who apocalypse now date wrong before, the Family Radio founder and religious figure says he is sure he has it right, this time around.
Sidenote: Camping’s first doomsday prediction was a little fuzzier than his new assertion. His previous estimate had set the fire and brimstone date somewhere in mid-September 1994. I remember this only because I thought it meant I wouldn’t have to worry about going back to school ever again. Summer, then heaven aka endless summer!
Fool me once..
Regardless, if there has been one good thing to come from the May 21st hysteria, it’s been the slew of “End of the World” themed parties that have cropped up in the past couple of days. So to help those of you looking to put together your own playlists- here are my five songs turnt all the way up for the last night on earth.
Speakers Going Hammer- May 21st Doomsday Edition (Disclaimer: Take lightly.)
Bell Biv DeVoe “Poison” More than anything, this is so I can do the opening sequence dance with one of my girlfriends. One last time- why not.
Whitney Houston “I Wanna Dance With Somebody”– I cannot even imagine the party she’d be having on the last day on earth. Mercy.
Waka Flocka Flame featuring Wale and Roscoe Dash “No Hands”– I’m not going to offer logical explanation for this one. There is none.
Paula Cole “I Don’t Wanna Wait”/Theme Song from Dawson’s Creek– yes, this is happening.
Mariah Carey “Always Be My Baby”– ok the mix got a little sappy, I know, but time is of the essence.
And just in case:
Richard Smallwood “Total Praise”
