Music That Takes on New Meaning During Covid-19

Music That Takes on New Meaning During Covid-19

Last updated:

I have always believed that music serves as the backdrop to our lives.

And as our lives unfold, we discover and gravitate towards different styles of music that fit into our ‘life chapter’ of the time, which ultimately becomes the soundtrack to our lives.

Our soundtrack is powerful… how many times does a song come on and you are suddenly transported to a time and place that makes you smile, reflect, or tear up?

During these turbulent times, as I have listened to some of my favorite ‘life soundtracks’, the lyrics have taken on a whole new meaning for me. I thought I would share a few of my mine… and please share yours as well.

Be well and continue to take care of yourself…
