Geology Through the Radio - Pompeii


Listening to the radio the other day this song caught my ear. Little did I realize what the title of the song was (Pompeii by Bastille). Then actually listening to the lyrics, I realized that that was what the song was actually about (not some fancy title that has nothing to do with the song what-so-ever).


Here are a set of the lyrics for instance:
And the walls kept tumbling down 

In the city that we love 

Gray clouds roll over the hills 

Bringing darkness from above

 Some questions that could be asked of this song:

1. What event is the song referring to?
2. What are the "great clouds" composed of?
3. What happened to the city that the song is referring to?
