Surto de coronavírus coloca “It's the End of the World As We Know It” do R.E.M. nas paradas de singles

Canção de 1987 atingiu a posição 41 na parada do iTunes

It's the End of the World As We Know It (And I Feel Fine)”, um dos primeiros grandes hits da banda norte-america de rock alternativo R.E.M. chegou na manhã desta segunda-feira, dia 16, ao 41º lugar na lista das principais músicas do iTunes.

A pandemia do coronavírus que assusta o mundo fez com que a música fosse relembrada mais de trinta anos depois de seu lançamento.

A canção lançada no álbum ‘Document’ e que “celebra o fim do mundo” faz referências a temas daquela década como o caso Irã-Contras, Guerra Fria, preocupações ambientais e evangelistas de TV.

Em 1987, quando lançada como single, "It's the End of the World as We Know It (And I Feel Fine)" atingiu a posição 69 da Billboard.
