The idea of staying home didn't sound too horrible at first, but as the days passed I started to feel stuck.
Music, worldwide, has always been used as an escape. It can instantly change the mood or remind you of a different place and time.
Whether you take your tunes on a walk around the neighborhood or drive with the windows down to go pick up your essentials, here is a list of new songs to spice up your spring playlist.
This list has been compiled from some of my own favorites and suggestions from friends on social media.
I've divided them into four categories: Upbeat, Sappy, Chill and Worship, for the different moods you may find yourself in.
Upbeat: The types of songs to sing at the top of your lungs when the sun is shining or when you want to feel like it is.
“Get Back” by Alt Bloom
“Good Day” by Surfaces
“No Matter Where You Are” by Us The Duo
Sappy: The type of songs you play when you are sad or want to be.
“Six Feet Apart” by Alec Benjamin
“New Start” by Weary Friend
“More Than My Hometown” by Morgan Wallen
Chill: The type of songs that feel like a night drive.
“Slow Down” by Jonathan Ogden
“Be Alright” by Surfaces
“Like No One Does” by Jake Scott
Worship: The type of songs that remind you God is still good.
“Graves into Gardens” by Elevation Worship
“The Blessing” by Kari Jobe, Cody Carnes and Elevation Worship
“Maybe it’s Ok” by We Are Messengers
“Springtime” by Chris Renzema
These days when you may be feeling stuck, I hope these songs give you a little escape. Whatever song becomes your anthem in this time, when it comes on the radio a few years from now, I hope it brings a little smile to your face and reminds you of that crazy time when all you could do was stay home.
