Music can help people process hard things like grief, overwhelm or loneliness. The Darling playlist series was created to help you during this time of quarantine. We hope to use music to bring you a little hope today.
2020 marks the beginning of a new decade, and it has gotten off to an unprecedented start. In just the first three months of 2020, the world was faced with a virus that changed the way we live our lives. While we are adjusting to our “new normal,” sometimes, it helps to look back on simpler times. Music is a great way to reminisce and hold sweet memories tight.
Today’s midweek playlist is all about taking a look back on classic songs with a new spin. A cover done well can be like medicine for the soul. Turn up the volume, and put on your dancing shoes as you sing along with these classics by both newcomers and some of today’s top artists.
