Hey folks, let’s get the preliminary 10-minute chitchat out of the away: Covid-19, Quarantine, TikTok, California Jail System. Now let’s get to the meat and potatoes of today’s episode: MUSIC. If you’re like us, music is a big part of your life. Music has a way of getting into your soul, mixing it all up, and afterwards, you’re ever so slightly changed. Want to get pissed, pumped, inspired, uplifted, cry like a baby, tell someone how you feel when you can’t find the words, dance like nobody’s watching? There’s a playlist just waiting to be made for ALL of that. Music is the language of the universe that has the power to bridge the gap between any two (or more) people wherever they meet somewhere in this world of ours. Music reaches into us on a cellular level. That’s powerful. That’s magical.
AND if you’re like us, you need to a shot of positivity right about now. So, today we talk about some of the music that we’ve been listening to lately…music that has helped us connect with our happier selves.
Today’s list is just a mere shaving off the top of the whole library of killer music we love. We could probably do an entire year of just talking about music, but for now, here’s a start.
There’s a method to our madness below. 1. If there’s an official band video, we’ll embed that. You might have to deal with ads. (Just click the Skip Ad option when it pops up.) 2. We’ll use the title for each song to link the page the embedded video is from.
We’ll kick this one off with Kym’s list of booty-shakin’ shower-singin’ songs:
Imagine Dragons: On Top of the World
Modest Mouse: Float On
Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers: I Won’t Back Down
Sam Hunt: House Party
