The Ultimate Quarantine Playlist for Every Mood!!

Quarantine Playlist

Hello there!! 😀 How are you coping with life my friends? I know that a lot’s going on in the world and it gets heavy to bear sometimes… I feel you. Shall we pause for a light breather? I have compiled a Quarantine Playlist that’s sure to lift your spirits even in the darkest of days!!


The idea to compile this Quarantine Playlist came to me in the middle of the night, some time ago, as I was jamming to some of my favourite songs from way back when!

Music has a way of uplifting my soul, and I believe it is one of God’s best gifts to the human race! Wouldn’t you agree?

Stop for a minute and think about all the songs you’ve listened to since you were a kid… Isn’t it amazing how a song can uplift your entire mood?

I love how music has the power to take you back to a specific moment and place… And I can’t help remembering the days when we had to rewind tapes just to catch the lyrics of a song… Or waiting all day long by the radio hoping that favourite song comes on… 🙂

Haha, I know some of my younger readers may not relate, but we love you all the same. 😉

So today, in a world that is hurting and trying to heal itself, I want to share this gift of Music with you. 🙂

I hope that you’ll find a song that will put a smile on your face and give strength to face your day with optimism!


P.S. Don’t stop there, share your own favourite songs on the comments’ section so we can also discover something new through you! Deal? 😀
