Well, for me that music just has a really melancholic and fatalistic sound to it. There is actually a song that uses this instrumental (The Kingstonians - Sufferer
), and it's lyrics go on about the sadness and trouble in the world that you can't do anything about, but I think that's not even necessary. It also introduces an element of self-pity that I don't like. To me, that warm yet ultimately meaningless rocksteady/reggae instrumental is what the end of the world sounds like. No pity, no judgement, just an inadvertable wave of all-conquering meaninglessness.
