These are strange times. With COVID-19 all over the news and all over my job – I work in healthcare – I’m craving distraction and cheerfulness. Not in order to pretend current events are not happening, but in order to nourish my mental health and ensure I’ll continue to be able to support others in the months to come. I’m sure others could use some positive energy too, so I’m sharing my current playlist for everyone to enjoy. Needless to say, I don’t own copyright of any of these songs and encourage listeners to support the artists who created them.
Possibly the best motivational song ever written. Uplifting for those blue moments.
A great song to dance to with truly amazing vocals.
A religious song offering hope even to the non-religious.
Swag and filthy bass lines, what’s not to like?
For when you want to indulge in melancholia for a bit.
Need some energy to get out of your Netflix stupor? This is your song.
Start your day as you mean to go on with some vintage Italian music.
Janis Joplin. Need I say more?
For when you feel really sorry for yourself.
Dance away your righteous anger about the state of the world.
Energy! Energy! Energy!
Because sometimes you just need some cheesy disco in your life.
Because: George Harrison.
Quiet beauty for introspection and reflection.
Dreamy and very French. Holiday in a song.
Or… You could just play Fatboy Slim’s Lockdown Mixtape and throw a rave party in your living room.
