When Spring Garden Records producer Starkey asked me to put together a “Quarantunes” playlist for the SGR Spotify page, my goal was to share some of the music that has touched, inspired, and spoken to me throughout my life. I listen to many genres, so I wanted the list to reflect that. I started dropping tunes into the list and then moved them around a bit, so the transitions wouldn’t be too jarring and sent it off.
It wasn’t until last week that I listened to the list from beginning to end during a run down on Forbidden Drive. It ended up being a list that is truly a reflection of the times we are living in. I was struck by the beauty and power of the lyrics, the significance of each selection and, how, though many were written and recorded decades ago, they still resonate today. Humankind continues to struggle against the same evils and continues to look for spiritual strength and guidance. I hope you find the playlist inspiring. It’s a great soundtrack for a run in the woods.
