Thread Name: 'Eve of Destruction' Barry McGuire
Subject: 'Eve of Destruction' Barry McGuire
Although Barry McGuire's song, "Eve of Destruction" was written as a protest song back in the 1960's, (some of the lyrics) seem so appropriate for our current state of the world with the Coronavirus raging out of control.

"Take a look around you boy, it's bound to scare you boy.
And you tell me over and over and over again my friend
Ah, you don't believe we're on the eve of destruction.

This whole crazy world is just too frustatin'
And you tell me over and over and over and over again
Ah, you don't believe we're on the eve of destruction."
