I know this is morbid but with COVID controlling our lives it felt appropriate to put together a playlist. Not just any playlist but one that would surely rouse me out of my coma if I were to be on a ventilator. I will send this to my sister who is a former ICU nurse - she will surely get it. No her name is not Shirley!
#1 with a Bullet. September by Earth Wind and Fire - two versions take your pick
#2 Cantaloop - a Jazz standard done by many. This version is a hip-hop version. The video really makes this song sweet!
#3 - Good Vibrations - Beach Boy Classic but done by others - this version selected because of the audio
#4 When the Levee Breaks - Led Zeppelin. Remember the saying ” If you don’t have Zeppelin on your playlist - you don’t have a Playlist!!”
#5 This Girl by the KUNGS - the high energy will needed to get me out of the coma I’m in
#6 Hotline Bling by The Hamiltones - these guys ooze soul - this was shot in their dressing rooms for God’s sake
#7 Ghost Chickens in the Sky - a parody of Ghost Riders in the Sky - absolutely hilarious
#8 This Thing Called Love by Dwight Yoakim - originally written by Freddie Mercury as a tribute to Elvis - I think both would be ecstatic about this version
#9 Prodigal Son - just cuz it’s Ry Cooder
#10 and if I don’t make it……… I Shall Be Released - Bob Dylan and The Band
Oh yeah if I never end up on a ventilator just consider this my top 10 Videos ! - The Management
