Music for the Apocalypse #43: Flash, by Queen

As a girl equipped to survive the apocalypse, I’m not generally inclined to wait around for a man to save me – chances are I’ll still be sitting there when the zombies eat me. Or the man will have been manfully hiding a bite and will turn into a zombie and eat me. But it’s hard not to hear this song and feel cheered. I feel it has a place in a post apocalypse world.

Also? The women in Flash Gordon are awesome. Especially General Kala. I mean, if the Apocalypse is coming, why not be in charge of its armies?

'What do you mean, "Flash Gordon approaching"?!'

General Kala

 

 

And as villains go, this is some kind of formiddable woman:

What do you mean, ‘Flash Gordon approaching’?!

Open fire! ALL weapons.

No half-measures with this lady. I challenge anyone to deny that this is a woman who commands respect with her every gesture, look, and tone.

General Kala: Apocalypse Girl extraordinaire.

Dale Arden

And let’s not forget Dale Arden. Not without fight in her, and even as she calls out: ‘Flash! Flash! I love you’ She adds as though to call him back to the matter at hand: ‘But we only have fourteen hours to save the Earth!’

Yeah, I think, come the apocalypse, this’ll be one I’m glad to have in my record collection.
