Musical Accompaniment for the End of the World

In the unlikely event that Harold Camping is correct, wouldn't it be nice to go out humming along with some appropriate music? The selections are presented here in alphabetical order by artist, because I think it especially silly to be highly organized in my response to the apocalypse.

Barry McGuire: Eve of Destruction
(does double duty as a protest song)

(And the MORE COWBELL! version, with Christopher Walken and Will Ferrell)

IT BOYS! End Of The World
(Good old Man-in-Black)

(or the studio version)
(Have you seen the movie?)

The Doors: The End
(really should have let this one go last)

2012 Movie Theme ( it aint the end of the world )
(original artist uncertain)

YES: Tempus Fugit

OK - that's enough from me, but please contribute your personal "end notes" if you like. - Happy last day on Earth everybody!
