Just Say Diversion – Volume Five – A Music Playlist


We’ve diverted your attention away from your newly-normal quarantine life, and we’ve invited you to wallow in your COVID-fueled paranoia and claustrophobia, but today we ask you to look forward.

Planet Pandemic will be our life for a good long while, but (hopefully) soon we can start to see each other and work our way back to a modified version of normalcy. This playlist celebrates coming out of the darkness with songs of little hard-earned victories, celebrations, and realistic affirmations.

It’s going to be okay, so settle in, listen up, and #StaySafe and #MuchLove from your friends at NewsWhistle…

From Chad: This album cover was going through my head as I put the playlist together. I love everything about it (and the album!).
