Playlist for the last day on earth

last day on earthJust in case the world is going to end on Friday I thought I would surround myself with cookies and music. Recipe for the chocolate peppermint cookies that W and I will be making this afternoon will be shared soon! (with plenty of time for you to try out before Friday.)

{For those unaware about what the deal is with December 21, 2012 you should check out how National Geographic explains the Maya Doomsday prediction.}

Here is my “the world may or may not end today” playlist. Let me know what you would add.

(in the order that they popped into my head)

Louis Armstrong -What a wonderful world
(Because, well, OBVIOUSLY)

Giuseppe Verdi – Anvil Chorus (from Il Trovatore)
(instant memories of listening to Opera with my Grandfather)

US3 – Cantaloop (Flip Fantasia)
(soundtrack from my mid 90’s)

Chuck Mangione – Feels So Good

Sarah McLachlan- Rainbow Connection

Tori Amos – Happy Phantom
(soundtrack to my early 90’s)

James Brown & Luciano Pavarotti – It’s a Man’s World
(yes. YES you read that right. If you have not heard this version before you MUST.)

Otis Redding – These Arms of Mine
(Best love song. Ever.)

Aretha Franklin – Bridge Over Troubled Water
(stop. just stop whatever you are doing right now and listen. You are welcome.)

What songs did I miss?

What is on your “I simply must hear this song again” list?


  1. Aretha Franklin: Baby I Love You.

  2. I have TOO MANY that I must hear again! However, there is a song that was my song to YOU :-)
    I don’t know how to embed it (if you’d even allow), but it’s Carly Simon’s “You are the Love of My Life”… I found the YouTube video per the link below :-)

    AND you know I love the soundtrack to Patton! :-)

  3. ooh what a list—for any day!

  4. Love this! For the end of the world or any other day.

  5. Fantabulous playlist! I’d add Earth, Wind and Fire’s Fantasy and Gato Barberi’s Europa.

  6. Walking on Sunshine–Katrina and the Waves
    170 by Kaizers Orchestra
    Something by Melissa Etheridge
