Some people turn to food for comfort in times of stress. I turn to music. Of course I love old hymns, as I wrote about here, but I also love a tune that makes my toes tap. So, because I love you, I’m sharing my comfort tunes playlist for your listening enjoyment.
Now, please understand, I have eclectic taste. You won’t like all my choices, I guarantee. But where else will you find James Taylor and Josh Groban back-to-back? Or John Denver and Louis Armstrong? You’re welcome.
My playlist criteria is simple: does the song make me feel sentimental, strong, supported, or hopeful? Check. The smart aleck in me seriously considered songs that were topically appropriate, but did not meet the spirit of this gesture. Songs like “Don’t Stand So Close to Me” by the Police, or “Staying Alive” by the BeeGees. I’ll let you add those on your own if that’s your jam! 🙂
So, what do you think? What are your go-to comfort tunes? Send me your suggestions and we’ll grow this thing! Together we’ll make beautiful music… socially distant, of course! Love you, friends. Stay safe.
