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.
