Song of the Day #1821

Song of the Day: The End of the World, words and music by Rob Dickinson, David Dundas, and Rick Wentworth, first appeared on a 2008 reissue of Dickinson’s 2005 albumFresh Wine for the Horses.” Check out his original version [YouTube link]. It was covered again in 2019, a preamble to this insane year of 2020, by Billie Eilish for the appropriately named album, “The Umbrella Academy: The Apocalyptic Fantasy Playlist.” The album derives from the Netflix series, “The Umbrella Academy” (which was adapted from the comic book series of the same name). Check out her hauntingly delivered rendition in its studio and live versions. Just one more entry to go in honor of Election Day and the End of the World predictions coming from each side of the aisle should the other side win!
