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, more directly support musicians, and eventually give the mp3s to your grandkids.

Because of the global pandemic, so many bands can't tours or play 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.
