Playlist // Songs for a Nuclear War

Songs for a Nuclear War - nessymon

As I write this, the world’s two biggest babies are having a boo boo and shouting ‘My button’s bigger than yours’ at each other.

So while we look at the back of the cupboards for our potassium iodine tablets that went out of date in the 1980’s, I thought I’d spend my time helping mankind, by putting a Spotify playlist together of some music to keep you company during the impending nuclear war.
