Monthly Mixtape: I’m Gonna Need You Six Feet Away, Okay?

Helloooo, April! Also, how was March six and a half months long?

This mix, oh man. Once I wrapped my head around it, crafting it was oddly fun to make. Because at first I was thinking, worldly songs from around the world because of the world and all the pain in the world. And then I thought, naaaaw that’s cliche.

So THEN I thought, all sad songs because we’re all so sad and super sad and really really sad. And then I thought, naaaaaaaaw that’s extra cliche.

SO THEN I thought, all happy songs because we need to be cheered up and happy and joyful and happy some more! And then I thought, naaaaaaaaaaaaaaw you’d want to drop kick me in the boob if I did that to you.

SO THEEEEEEEN, it came to me. And it might not make complete sense (do I ever, though?), but these songs are strangely applicable to now. If not in irony, in flat out truth. Some of these songs are nothing but a soul blanket. Something you’ve not heard in a while and didn’t know you desperately needed to hear again until right this second.

Some are light instrumental tunes that are background mood lifters. They have nothing to do with anything except to be and soothe.

Some of these lyrics CRACK me up with what’s all happening right now. “Go wherever you wanna go, do what you wanna do, with whoever you want to.” Ha haaaaaaa ha? Oh.

Overall, some are light, some are dark, some are fun, some are moody, some are cheery. I hope it does that thing to you that you need right now.

Also, it’s my 15th wedding anniversary, so you’re clearly obligated to listen. That’s how this works, right?

AND NOW, I give you . . . The “I’m Gonna Need You Six Feet Away, Okay?” Mix.

Stay home! Stay happy. Stay healthy. And stay six feet away, coo coo.

xx – b

    Thanks Bev! And happy anniversary!! It’s our 9th anniversary today. It’s not the way I pictured it, but somehow a quiet dinner at home with the kids and some champagne seems just right. Cheers!

      Ahhhh happy anniversary to you, too! About to ride our bikes for French curbside takeout, followed by a picnic out back. Pawfect! Have a great day!

    Happy anniversary! Today is my daughter’s 19th birthday, which is eerily appropriate. The items on her wishlist (pre-world-falling-apart) were a manicure, skinny jeans, and a sweatshirt from her school. She got a box of painted carpenter nails (get it?), her dad’s jeans wrapped up all pretty, and her dad’s sweatshirt with a piece of scrawled on card stock stuck to it. Thankfully she has a sense of humor. (*we aren’t entirely cruel. Once the world resumes she will get all these things get all these things for real!)

    Hide and Seek by Imogen Heap is one of my all time mood songs. I haven't heard it in forever. Thank you. It's perfect.
