Music for the End of the World


Music defines moments. Music forges memories. Music can help us to cope with our emotions and move through them or it can drive us deeper into the feeling allowing us to put a sound to an undescribable sensation. I think you can tell I love music.

It is very rare to find me without music playing (either outwardly or in my head). But this time of quatantine has left me searching for just the right tunes to fit this global experience. So I have created a small playlist for you to enjoy during this once in a lifetime event.

Since everybody is different, I created two playlists. The first one if for the Eternal Optimist who sees nothing but sunny skies and new opportunities. The second one is for the Doomsday Road Warrior ready to pick out his Mad Max outfit. Rock on!
