In this installment of hand-picked playlists, we’re playing Connect Five — five songs on the theme that “we’re all in this together,” as one of the selections is helpfully titled. Do you have a favorite? Let’s connect in the comments.
1. Aloe Blacc, “Hello World (The World Is Ours)”
“Hello world, the past is over. It’s time for us to come together and make the future right…” Powerful and true.
2. Sam Roberts Band, “We’re All In This Together”
The catchy rhythm and horns make it easy to “keep moving, don’t stop.”
3. SOJA, featuring Michael Franti, “I Believe”
The Law of Attraction set to a reggae beat. “Everything that you say become the things that you do. Remember what you put out there is building you…”
4. Sleeping At Last, “You Are Enough”
Our connection is on purpose. There are no cosmic accidents in Creation. Each of us has a unique gift to share. You are the perfect you. You are enough.
5. Emily Hearn, “Found a Heart”
Two souls destined to connect in love is a perfect connection.
