Imogen Heap’s song “Glittering Clouds” sounds like a fanciful fairytale of fireworks and stars, but it’s actually a song about the Plague of Locusts over Egypt:

“Domino motion jump starts when we touch/The blackout approaching/Here it comes now, wish me luck/It’s all over, it’s all over, it’s all over in a flash/I can’t remember/What have I done now?”

Who knew pestilence could be so pretty?
