Q2: How about a song that resonates? In the early days when we were hunkering down, I couldn’t get ‘Life During Wartime’ out of my head. #JandoliChat— Jandoli Institute (@Jandoli_Inst) May 12, 2020
A2: "Anonymous Club" by Courtney Barnett (@courtneymelba). I rediscovered it when a friend shared with me a Spotify playlist he made that's been unintentionally soundtracking this strange time. #JandoliChat https://t.co/ivxowOvJ1Y— Patrick Hosken (@patrickhosken) May 12, 2020
A2: After the death of Ellis Marsalis, who I saw perform this summer at #CHQ, I started listening to a lot of jazz music. I happened across Oscar Peterson’s “Hymn to Freedom” and I feel like his rarely heard lyrics are really fitting for this time. #JandoliChat pic.twitter.com/C5lPGprnLr— Cameron Hurst (@CameronNHurst) May 12, 2020
With Dylan's release of new music and a full-length album, the quarantine seems to be a great headspace for writing. One that particularly stuck out was @mikelove's latest release, This too Shall Pass. It depicts the times we live in, with the classic Beachboys twist #Jandolichat— Stephen Wilt (@stephen_wilt) May 12, 2020
Beachboys and Dylan. Survived the '60s, still going strong during a global pandemic https://t.co/OF5HAILtIe— Jandoli Institute (@Jandoli_Inst) May 12, 2020
That's a great representation of where we're at!— Stephen Wilt (@stephen_wilt) May 12, 2020
That one hit the mark after 9/11 too. #JandoliChat— Jandoli Institute (@Jandoli_Inst) May 12, 2020
A2: From Nicolas Coyne: Sonically, Arlo Parks' "Super Sad Generation" was hitting differently as things set in and I was thinking about communities around the world, who were all in the same sort of battle. #JandoliChat— Jandoli Institute (@Jandoli_Inst) May 12, 2020
A2: For me, it's different songs on different days. As a Dead fan, ‘A Touch of Grey’ is another song I’d put on a pandemic soundtrack. #JandoliChat— Jandoli Institute (@Jandoli_Inst) May 12, 2020
