#songoftheday = BUTCH WALKER: “END OF THE WORLD (ONE MORE TIME)” (#songsforourtimes #18)
“Skyrockets in flight / Get ready for a fight!” proclaims Butch Walker excitedly before a “hey, hey” during the bridge of his ultra-catchy ode to the end of the world, appropriately entitled, “End of the World (One More Time).” Rather than dreading the situation, Butch seems to throw his hands up in the air and say, what the hell, let’s have a blast! “Don’t worry about me / I’m doing just fine,” he sings, sounding happy-go-lucky as can be. Perhaps the subject matter is a little downtrodden, but he makes it sound like cause for celebration. Party!
