Music in the Time of Quarantine
In troubling times, music is something that unites us and lifts our spirits. According to Psychology Today, music is beneficial to mental health because it elevates our mood, promotes creative thinking, and makes us feel good. We can also have fun with it by making playlists that contain songs that reflect our current situation or feelings. Hence the popularity of “quaran-tunes,” or songs whose titles or lyrics make us chuckle as we socially distance and stay home during the COVID-19 outbreak. Using Freegal, a music downloading service provided by the library, and Hoopla, a digital media service that allows library users to borrow music (as well as movies, tv shows, audiobooks, comic books and ebooks) and allows you to create your own playlist.
Here are some songs to (hopefully) get you through, all courtesy of resources available with your library card!
What songs are listening to right now? Which ones would you add to this list? We’d love to hear from you!
