When the moment shifts into one of the places we rather not go, we have to find a way to keep on. It becomes a bit like fighting with dragons when we are isolated. Dragons though respond to players with music, so we do well to employ singers and songs. When we link our voices with what brings us joy and sing loud and strong, the doldrums have to go.
This is a shortlist, and I would welcome hearing from you all what helps keep your grip fastened in place.
Start Me Up, Don’t Stop, You Got Me Rocking – The Rolling Stones will help turn a mood around.
Hideaway, Joy, Goddess in the Doorway – Mick Jagger is particularly useful when you are trying to adjust to quarantine.
Time Waits for No One – Freddie Mercury makes one appreciate living.
One Vision, Love Kills, The Show Must Go On; I Want It All – QUEEN is motivating.
We Believe, The Greatness of Our God, God Is Not Dead – Newsboys are rousing anthems of faith.
God Is In Control – Twila Paris is useful when things feel out of all control.
You Say – Lauren Daigle will help if one feels lost and out of sorts.
Two Pina Coladas – Garth Brooks is just plain fun.
You Love Is Lifting Me Higher And Higher – Rita Coolidge is one of the best love songs ever.
I sleep with the QUEEN channel on YouTube playing.
Anyway, find your tunes and disperse those dragons, if the need finds you.
