The coronavirus crisis is taking over all aspects of our life. That’s why I decided to select some of my all-time favourite songs and share them with you, hoping that it will make you feel better during the coronavirus crisis. So I hope you want some music that will make you feel good because that’s what this is about.
By the way, remember to check the list of things you can do while you are stuck at home.
The news is not saying anything cheerful these days, and most of us are just asked to stay as much as possible at home, practising social distancing.
While I can’t deny the gravity of the coronavirus crisis, I know that I will completely lose my mind if I continue to focus on it (and that won’t do anyone any good), and decided to curate a playlist of the most joyful and uplifting songs I know and like.
I curated this magical playlist together with my boyfriend, Edi (who has a personal blog about music). He made me promise that I will give him credits for it.
Also, I have probably missed some songs, while others were not included because I didn’t feel like they were sharing the same upbeat feeling.
You’ll notice that most of these songs are decades old, but that doesn’t mean they ever got old. Good music last forever, for us to listen to them, to be inspired and to create and live the life we want to live.
I hope you enjoy my 25+ song playlist and that will make you feel better in these times of crisis.
Remember that no matter what happens, we are responsible for how we feel. And it’s our choice.
Let’s do our best with what we have.
