Updated: Nov 15, 2020
Happy Monday friends,
If you're like me, and you live in America, you've had pressure to vote shoved in your face from all elements of the media, mail and even people you know. I'm ready for it to be over. I voted weeks ago and it's all feeling very redundant by now. The stress and anxiety caused by this election is real and severe and all I can ask is that you show some extra kindness to others this week, everyone is on edge and could use a compliment or a door held for them to make their week a little bit brighter.
The playlist this week begins with making bad decisions by Bea Miller off her new album elated!. Her voice rides the fine line of raspy and sultry, an absolute treat to listen to. making bad decisions is about giving into your indecisiveness and making choices on your mood at any given moment.
Forever After All by Luke Combs is a quintessential country song. Whenever I hear a song like this, I am taken back to sitting at a bar in Nashville, listening to the songwriters try out new music. When a song is really good, has a good hook, or has something clever that makes it stand out, everyone nods and smiles in acknowledgement that we know the songwriter has something exceptional. I feel the Nashville nods in this song.
Speaking of Nashville, that's where Joy Oladokun resides and I was deeply moved by her song i see america. In her voice and her words, I feel the pain of our country at this moment in time. As she says "I see you, I see love, I see America".
