Earworm – The Final Countdown & It’s The End Of The World As We Know It ♫

The song, The Final Countdown, got stuck in my head over the weekend. Dad and I were discussing the pandemic and how we’re all in this together. We agreed that the longer we ignore the science, the longer it will take to get this under control.

We spoke of the millions who have contracted COVID-19, and the millions who will die unnecessarily before this is over IF we all don’t band together and do what needs to be done. I mean, a few minor inconveniences seems a much better plan for the future than being on a ventilator and dying alone. The last thing that came out of my mouth, which nearly brought me to tears was, “If we don’t get our shit together, this could be our final countdown.”

And that’s all it took for this song to get stuck in my head for 2 days, and now regrettably, every time I hear the song I will think of the year 2020 and how we have failed.

No, I don’t think it’s the end of the world, but it’s quite possibly the end of the world as we know it…. Well, shit. Now that song is stuck in my head!

  1. Agreed……if we, as a society can’t get our shit together……many millions more will die. It seems we’re going backwards, and I also agree, 2020 has been a complete clusterfuck and I can’t wait for it to be over.

  2. And now I have three songs stuck in my head. But, you are right Deb, it does seem like the final moments until self destruction… it is getting harder and harder to hold out hope that things will improve after November. Can I just sleep until the insanity is finally over?


  3. Deb,
    If I leave this world, it better damned well not be by having “The Final Countdown” stuck in my head! Damn, that makes me wonder. If I had a play list to listen to as I died (I’m hoping to get a few songs in), what would I want to hear? What would you want? Hmmm….I’ll have to think about that for a while. Ew, I just had a morbid thought. Did you ever see that made-for-tv movie about the woman who drove her kids out onto an abandoned road and shot them while she listened to Duran, Duran’s “Hungry Like a Wolf” while she did it? She wanted to get rid of them so she would be free to spend time with someone she was obsessed with at her work. Cray, cray, huh? Everytime I hear that song, I think about that. Okay, I need to move on to less morbid subjects. Great post, though! Mona
