As those folks who know me, I love music especially in singing. As we go through the gradual phase-in of a new normal c/o COVID-19,pending the emergence of a vaccine, here is a short playlist of songs which describes what I think and feel about these changes—-
As I go into a store that has already reopened after a few months,the salespeople would greet me “Welcome back”–cue in the theme song from Welcome Back Kotter.
As I see a grandparent giving finally hugs and kisses to his/her grandchild after being quarantined and locked down, I hear the song lyrics from 3 songs—Reunited—by Peaches & Herb ,When Will I See You Again by Three Degrees and Together Again originally sung by Emmylou Harris though I also liked Martina Mcbride’s version as well.
As I walk down the street and even with social distancing still in place, at least I am not in quarantine, the song from the movie Flashdance (What A Feeling)comes to mind and if I feel like dancing, I imagine Kevin Bacon dancing to Kenny Loggins’ song Footloose.
Keep your chin up,folks! We can do this! Stay safe!
