The End of the World

My sister and I threw my parents a 50th wedding anniversary party last December and one of my jobs was to put together a playlist of early-to-mid-60s music. I consider myself pretty knowledgeable about 60s pop music but there were quite a few gems I had never heard before, like this one: “The End of the World” by Skeeter Davis (I’m not sure how I missed it, as it seems to have been featured in quite a few movies, TV shows, and video games). This song is simple but timeless – almost perfect, I’d say. And Skeeter Davis had one of the purest voices I’ve ever heard.
