Three Songs Lifting our Spirits Right Now
There’s no shortage of amazing music in the world – that’s one thing that’s made lockdown a lot more bearable!
We love to book music acts for our Awards, having featured Heather Small and S-Club in previous years. You’ll have to stay tuned to find out who we book for the UK Customer Experience Awards this October!
These are just a few of the songs I’ve enjoyed during lockdown, and I wanted to share them with you. Hopefully they lift your spirits like they did for me!
1. Belle & Sebastian, For The Price of a Cup of Tea
From their seminal 2006 album The Life Pursuit, these Scottish indie darlings capture domestic settings very well, and there’s a gentle kindness to their music that I find very uplifting.
2. Arcade Fire, Sprawl II (Mountains Beyond Mountains)
Concerning the desire to escape the pressures of city life, this song affirms our ability to look beyond difficult circumstances and find hope.
3. Led Zeppelin, The Rain Song
A golden oldie, this one starts with a highly reflective tone that seems to capture the present mood. Towards the end, though, the music breaks, as if sun finally shines through the clouds: “I felt the coldness of my winter/I never thought it would ever go/I cursed the gloom that set upon us/But I know that I love you so.”
