Are we living in a dystopia? We have climate change, a population in America that a large number believe conspiracy theories, an attempted insurrection against the government... the list goes on and on. I thought I would put together a dystopia playlist- or even a post apocalyptic one- I mean, how fun is that? Songs that address dystopian ideas can be amazing. So... here are some music choices that I think evoke the dystopian mindset well.
Oh, and to celebrate 2019 as the year Blade Runner was set in, I did a similar post back then. You can see that here if you want to compare. A dystopian view of the future, to be sure, but... it's now the present, not the future. A place where climate change is ignored and ignorance is celebrated in America.
Last year we saw these.
So... this is my first of a series of dystopian playlist choices.
It's sad that we have to live a real dystopian, but I agree about what you said, and the playlist is cool! :)ReplyDelete
I really feel like we're living in a dystopia but hoping by summer to feel less that way!ReplyDelete
Thanks for sharing!ReplyDelete
I've been feeling like we're living in a dystopia lately too. It's scary times!ReplyDelete
This is great!ReplyDelete
Who knew that our dystopian world would be brought on by a bunch of bumbling idiots that are nonetheless destroying us.
I'm at a loss to explain how people believe these conspiracies and how violent the got.

Oh someone said the moon is just an illusion on the net! Best believe it then. Oh 2020
Really crazy times! Glad you found some inspiration in it!ReplyDelete
HA I love this because WOW how appropriate! I guess at least it isn't Red Sun Toxin? Would that be worse? Or just more entertaining? Who can tell.ReplyDelete
fits the timesReplyDelete

Dystopian always reminds me of Hunger Games, and I love that movie's soundtrack (also its sequels' OSTs). Thanks for sharing some great music as always.ReplyDelete
I think we are definitely living in a dystopia, if Godzilla or aliens appeared now I wouldn’t be surprised.ReplyDelete
It sure has felt like a dystopia lately but I'm hopeful for better things this year. Red Skies is a great throwback.ReplyDelete
I bookmarked this post for later. 🎶ReplyDelete
I remember seeing a photo of the red sky in Oregon and I legit thought it was a filter over the photo at first. We really are living in a dystopia, in so many ways. Good song pairing!ReplyDelete
Cool playlist, I would not expect less from you, lolReplyDelete
That's a classic '80s song! Perfect for your list. Yes, it feels like we're getting close to the Apocalypse! I can't believe all the crazy conspiracy theories out there! There was a special on QAnon on CNN last night and wow! I better start brushing up on my zombie apocalypse skills, because that's got to be next, right?!ReplyDelete
Well indeed with a mortal virus, we are not far from dystopia!ReplyDelete
