Latest news from Seeking A Friend For The End Of The World
Posted by Peter Bowen | May 9, 2012
You find out a massive asteroid is hurtling towards earth leaving only a few weeks before it's all over. What to do? Well, for one, you might pull together a soundtrack for this momentous event. If you go to www.playlistfortheend.com you can share your playlist with others, or find out what SEEKING A FRIEND FOR THE END OF THE WORLD's star Steve Carell put on his. Carell, who has the "Featured Playlist," has a great mix. The end is near, so dance. He's got plenty of songs to get down with - from Tubthumper's party anthem album Chumbawamba, or the collection Essential 80's Funky Dance (with move-your-bones favorites like KC & The Sunshine Band's "Get Down Tonight" and A Taste of Honey's tipsy hit "Boogie Oogie Oogie"). For just pure rockin' there's 90s' hard rock masters Extreme's 20th Century Masters - The Millennium Collection: The Best of Extreme, P!nk's M!ssundaztood, and more recently Bruno Mars' Doo-Wops & Hooliganz. Of course, there are also the classics, like Louis Armstrong's Louis Armstrong's All-Time Greatest Hits (with the touching "What a Wonderful World") and The Beatles' Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. But one of my favorite Carell picks is the The Muppets soundtrack. That thought of listening to the infectious showstopper "Life's a Happy Song" (created by Flight of the Conchords' Bret McKenzie) as you wait for life's happy song to end seems marvelously right.
