Quarantine Playlist

Music is a powerful elixir, tonic capable of lifting spirits with inexplicable harmonic energy. Tonight’s quarantine playlist started with Casual Viewin’ by iconic Canadian band 54-40, a curious choice considering their vast catalogue and undeniable place on my top ten list of favorite bands. 54 40 could sing the phonebook and I’d be happy, Casual Viewin’ makes me smile, if that’s not quarantine tonic I don’t know what is.

Next played Over Everything by Courtney Barnett and Kurt Vile. Two fav artists joining to produce a song that makes me feel good –

For no discernible reason I turned to old school hip hop. Beatie Boys and Salt N Pepa –

Currently I’m digging Who Will Save Your Soul by Jewel –

Quarantine playlists are fascinating. What we listen to speaks volumes about our mindset.

    Hah! Speaking of which, did you catch my Playlist on my latest blog-post? It was a small sampling (6 tracks) of “my mindset.” πŸ˜„πŸ˜ˆ

  3. I must be getting old …. no, amend that … friggin’ ancient.
    Can’t say these are up my street, never got into the Beastie boys, but Kurt Vile .. whoever this may be …. does sound a bit like Lou Reed and Jewel has a nice voice.

    The wonderful thing about music … takes all sorts!
    Now, where are my Peggy Lee records?

    • Wonderful thing about music is that on any given day I could be listening to BB King, Janis Joplin, vintage Genesis, BeyoncΓ© or Pearl Jam. That’s what makes playlists so cool. πŸ™‚
