Spend $25 on music

It's really cool to listen to great music and also to pay for it. You can buy each of these songs (for $1), support musicians, and eventually give the mp3s to your grandkids.

Because of the global pandemic, so many touring bands have had to cancel upcoming tours and shows. Those were an important source of income for many, and a lot of artists are hurting. The future feels so wildy uncertain for all of us. But, one thing I know for sure: music is essential. Listen to the songs you love (truly, all the ones in the lists below are wonderful) and give money to the people who make them.

You can (and should) find plenty of ways to support the musicians you love, and these are for sure not the only incredible songs out there. But, these are all good ones that I really think you might like. And let me know if you want any more recommendations.
