Music has always helped me de-stress and escape from the pressures of life for a bit. Singing aloud to my favourite song or having an impromptu dance party while cooking in the kitchen has a funny lil way of making every fear, worry, or anxiety vanish – even if only for the 2-3 minutes the song lasts. And now, more than ever, we all need this form of fun and escapism.
There is a lot we can’t control in our world right now, but what we can control is how we react to all that’s happening. Despite all the fear and panic, we can still choose to be kind to each other, grateful for the good around us, and to focus on the little joys in our every day. Music being one of those simple joys.
As we’re all doing our part and staying home, there ain’t no better time than the present to have a Quarantine Dance Party! Who’s ready to join me in belting out the lyrics and dancing our lil booties off to some serious bops?!
And as an uber proud Canadian, you know I had to start with a Canadian edition! ? Btw, I’m totally aware that there are countless other super talented Canadian artists that haven’t made it to this list – there were just too many to choose from! But there’s always a Quarantine Dance Party – Part Two, amirite??! ?
I hope this playlist will put a pep in your step, a smile on your face, and take you back to a brighter and happier time.
Happy singing + dancing, my sweet peas!
