At the end of 2020 we were all expecting 2021 to be different. We were hoping for society to open more up, for the pandemic to slowly recede. A new beginning after such a long time of troubles.
But that has not happened yet, and it does not look like we will be able to return to normalcy any time soon.
But it does not have to be boring to stay at home all day. Music on your radio station has the power to make anything better, even in the darkest moments. So, let us go through some past and contemporary tracks that can function as a soundtrack to your listener’s lives during the pandemic.
The Police – Don’t Stand So Close To Me
The Police has produced many a hit song during their hey-day in the 80s. And Don’t Stand So Close To Me seems more relevant than ever now during the pandemic.
Of course, the song is not about social and safe distancing to avoid the infection of a virus, but the general theme of keeping distance and staying apart is a fun play on the song’s name and the current situation of the world.
ToTo – Stay Away
ToTo fronted by the legendary singer Joseph Williams was a pure powerhouse in the 80s. Their song Stay Away from the album The Seventh One is originally about a woman turning away a wild and rootless man from her heart. But we can allow ourselves to twist the meaning a bit these days.
Shouting “Stay away!” loudly while singing along with Mr. Williams perfectly represents what we feel when somebody stands a little too close to us in the supermarket or on the streets.
One Republic – Better Days
As funny as it can be to joke about our current predicament, we must not forget that a lot of us are really struggling in these times and need some consolation. One Republic’s song, Better Days, is all about hanging on and keeping in mind that better days are ahead of us. Eventually, this too shall pass. Keep your head high and your spirits up and we will get through this together. We are all in the same boat.
Grace Potter – Eachother
Many people have lost a lot during the pandemic. Maybe they lost their house, a relative or their job. Sometimes the whole world feels like it has stopped, and nothing is the same.
But one thing we must always keep in mind is that we have each other. That is the message in Grace Potter’s song Eachother. Keep in touch with your friends and family in any way you can, and make sure everybody is alright.
Patience and a Smile
While we are in full swing with the second year of quarantine and pandemic, we must not lose hope. We will all come through this in the end. But we have got to be patient, follow the government’s guidelines, and never forget to smile. Even though things look bleak there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Make time pass by visiting Spin online casino, keeping in touch with friends or cultivating your hobbies. Stay safe!
