I'm putting together a special playlist for the General Rapture on Saturday afternoon.

Three obvious choices are "Rapture" by Debbie Harry, "I Wish We'd All Been Ready" by Larry Norman and "It's The End Of The World As We Know It" by R.E.M.. But there must be loads more. So get thinking and let me know your suggestions by Friday evening.

I'll try and get the tunes posted well before 6.00p.m. so KJ gets to hear them before he leaves.



  1. There is Anita Baker’s, “Rapture”. I think the song is “Caught up in the Rapture”…ov luuuuv.

  2. Hell’s Bells & Highway to Hell by AC/DC

    Ding Dong The Witch Is Dead

    Celebrate by Kool & the Gang

    Break On Through by the Doors

    The End by the Doors (the whole thing)

    Yes, I’m evil.

  3. MP Don’t confuse Anita with Tammy Faye Baker who had similar sounding hit “Caught up in the mascara of love”.

  4. If they’re downloadable, perhaps I could put them on my iPod Touch and take them with me.

  5. susan s.!!! And I thought you were my friend.

    “When We All Get To Heaven”.

    While we walk the pilgrim pathway,
    Clouds will overspread the sky;
    But when trav’ling days are over,
    Not a shadow, not a sigh.

    All the raptured folks anyway. Not the rest of us.

  6. Lets see…
    Losing my religion
    Up up and away
    Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds
    Space Oddity
    Stairway to heaven
    Great Gig in the Sky
    Wish you were here
    Good bye Blue Sky
    Comfortably Numb
    Is anybody out there
    Goodbye Cruel World

    I’ve always liked Pink Floys

  7. Knockin’ On Heaven’s Door

    Spirit in the Sky

    um…..trying to think of more….

  8. Any chance you would be so kind as to post on the series of “raptures” that were to have occurred, not unlike the list in your photo, dating back to perhaps the 1800s and the start of the 7th Day Adventist movement, or the Pentecostals?
    Here’s to hoping!

  9. May I make a request for “I’ll Fly Away,” sung by Alison Krauss? Though, she’s so wonderful, I suspect I’ll have live performances anytime I want them in Heaven.

  10. “The Real End” by Rickie Lee Jones.
    “Can’t Help But Wonder Where I’m Bound” by Tom Paxton.

  11. “I Did It My Way”

    “Magic Carpet Ride”

    “They’re Coming to Take Me Away”

    “Drop Kick Me, Jesus”

    The Mozart Dies Irae

    “Tha Campbell’s Are Comin'”

    “Dance of the Sugarplum Fairy”

    “We’ve Only Just Begun”

    “I Can Fly, I Can Fly, I Can Fly!”

  12. Don’t Fear the Reaper

    Blow, Gabriel, Blow

    C’mon Get Happy (“Get Ready for the Judgment Day!”) – Judy Garland

    Almost Paradise

    Heaven is a Place on Earth

    [Yup, that’s JCF: a combination of 80s Pop, and Show Tunes]

    Oh, and for some Classical Class:

    Handel “The Trumpet Will Sound”

  13. In the billion-to-one chance Mr. Camping has got it right I’d like to request Elvis Costello’s God’s Comic in the hope it might mitigate the Almighty’s wrath in regard to to all the jokes I’ve ever made about Bobby Duncan/Peter Akinola/Martyn Minns/Don Armstrong/etc.

    But not Matt Kennedy and the Ould twins. Even Camping’s god enjoys a chuckle at their expense.

  14. This Camping bloke has got form. He’s done this before according to Wiki, in 1994. He’s an old codger who can’t face the fact that he’s gunna die. In his case,…of old age.

  15. Song of the Salvation Army

    Pie in the sky by and bye

    Both are in the IWWW songbook and should be on Youtube.
