April 2020 Funky Time Jams

Hello! We are officially one week through April and what feels like one thousand years in self-isolation. So, music has definitely been a big part of helping to make the time go faster. There’s something about playing a familiar song while tucking into a good book that is so comforting – especially when it’s so easy to feel unnerved even in your own home. This is the music that has been keeping me company as yet another day in quarantine passes by:

^^^ And, as always, I have no rights to these songs or videos!

A random compilation, I know – but this has been such a random feeling time. Everything just seems so up in the air and I never know what mood I’m in. Sometimes all I want to hear is top forty hits all day. Other times, I want nothing more than to time travel back to the 50s and 60s as I eagerly await for the completion of another day.

While Ohio is under a stay at home order, I have been clinging to a schedule and normalcy. This means following along with my music listening times daily like when I’m in the shower or writing in the morning. It’s nice to hear something that puts me more at ease when I’m trying to relax or upbeat tracks when I need to get ready for work.

Familiar things are my friends right now and the songs above have all been there at some point during this whole ordeal. Whether that be to save me from boredom or to hype me up, there’s nothing better than some Old Faithfuls!

What have been your favorite songs lately? What do you play to fight the lock down blues? I want to hear from all of you, so leave me a comment and let’s chat! Much love. -Sarah

  1. People who can pick one favorite song and stick to it are people who resist any kind of change. Or perhaps people who can’t pick just one are people who have trouble making decisions. I definitely fall into the “how the hell can you only have ONE favorite song?” category. Music is a alive and impossible to cage. On any given day I can switch between quite a few songs that are in a given particular moment my “favorite.” At the same time I also sometimes listen to one song for weeks. Yes, one song on repeat. And still I wouldn’t want to lock myself into naming that song as my favorite. As for what I am playing nowadays… again quite a few, however, these jump to my mind immediately:
    1. Foo Fighters – Walk https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8J5PYzkzDQI
    2. Dream State – New Waves https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8s2POYKsKsw
    3. The Naked and Famous – No Way https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kvza6fVR0U0
    4. Mondo Cozmo – Shine https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mmZ1YI5vmD8
    5. The New Pornographers – Champions of Red Wine
    6. Jack Bauer – Buttercup https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e2qG5uwDCW4
    7. Bleachers – I7m Ready to Move on / Wild Heart Reprise https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BR_HNqAE8IA

    Ugh. I could go on and on…
