Songs for the apocalypse: Chris Isaak “Graduation Day”

I remember graduating myself the year this record came out and while it wouldn’t have exactly been the most cheery song to play at a graduation (“Watching the stars fall, a million dreams have all gone bad” – Er…) it circle round my head all day, and then successively working in higher education, twice a year ever since. The low key arrangement is stunning.
