Rapture Mixed Tape

I like to think every occasion deserves a mixed tape (and I prefer “mixed tape” to “playlist,” even if it shows my age.) With Blondie’s “Rapture” stuck in my head all day–I started singing it when I read something this morning about the proposed end of days on May 21–I decided to get it out of my head by listening to other songs appropriate for the occasion. Radiohead’s “Reckoner” popped in my head, then Prince’s “1999” and, well, a lot of my favorite artists have something that seems just right for judgment day. More to be added to this, I’m sure….
