Pod Delusion: MAYA-POCALYPT-AGEDDON! (but I feel fine)


Podcast: Download

In an odd turn of events, I've ended up singing a sparkling one-off theme tune for this week's END OF THE WORLD SPECIAL Pod Delusion.

I wrote the lyrics and Professor Music himself, Milton Mermikedes slapped them onto a backing track of R.E.M's "It's The End of the World As We Know It (And I Feel Fine)".

As it was all done in a last minute rush, with sub-optimal equipment ..*cough*.. the lyrics aren't as clear as they could have been had I had a decent piece of software. As a result, a few have asked what all the lyrics are, and so I've put them here for posterity.

A new thing for me - and a fun thing. Hopefully, it will be considered less preferable to the apocalypse. Apologies to Berry, Mills, Buck and Stipe.
