I started The Monday Lineup on the basis that music is powerful and that good music, while it can’t solve most problems, can make us feel better enough to keep going and keep fighting the good fight. This past week has been one of those weeks that feels overwhelming, frustrating, even infuriating, and perhaps has left you with feelings you aren’t quite sure what to do with.
In the years since TML was founded, lots has happened - including the mainstream acceptance of the importance of self-care (I see you fab five). Self-care can take on many forms, but when I’m going through it, one of the most important ways I take care of myself is through listening to straight-up, unabashed feel-good music (even if it means forcing myself). This week, we’re returning to the very roots of The Monday Lineup with a playlist full of tried and true feel-good jams. Consider Lineup #255 your self-care regimen to start your week.
