First Name Last Name Song Artist Note to Share with Membership
Ebone Mahone-Todman Optimistic Sounds of Blackness “If things around you crumble, no you dont have to stumble and fall. Keep pushing on and don’t you look back.”- just a great reminder that e can and will push times through times like this. Stay strong and safe!
Melissa Cline (Sittin’ On) the Dock of the Bay Otis Redding Reminds me to slow down. Every bit of our lives have changed, but finding beauty in what remains true – love for one another, people helping people, and finding the beauty in each day.
Maria Elena Ornelas Don’t Come Around Here No More Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers How it currently feels with the self-isolation/social distancing vibe right now.
Lee Ann Backlund Don’t Stand So Close to Me The Police Just in the spirit of our social distancing…
Jessica Hardy Don’t Stop Believin Journey We have to keep moving!
Maria Elena Ornelas Don’t Stop Me Now Queen One of my pick-me-up songs. Love the chorus and really gets you motivated.
Melissa Cline Don’t Worry Be Happy Bobby McFerrin This has been a staple song on a number of rough days the past few weeks. My sons and I enjoy singing this together and although every bit of our normal life is in question, I find great joy in sharing these moments of singing with them.
Diana McAfee Don’t You Worry ‘Bout a Thing Tori Kelly My daughter has been watching the animated movie “Sing” a lot lately, and I always enjoy this song! Wikipedia says, “It sounds and feels like a burst of summer happiness.” Ha! Who couldn’t use some summer happiness these days?
Jessica Hardy Faith George Michael I play this for my advisory everyday since we have been meeting remotely.
Ryan Cassell Hands Clean Alanis Morissette Wash your hands.
Megan Rolf Here Comes the Sun The Beatles We will get all get through this together
Ashley Young I Wanna Dance with Somebody Whitney Houston No matter what…. this song manages to uplift me! 🙂
Arlene Outerbridge I Will Survive Gloria Gaynor I love singing this song out loud at the top of my lungs for some reason. I have sung it in Karoake, with the windows down, vacuuming, or just for the heck of it. The repetitive words of I Will Survive just resonates with me right now.
Ryan Riggs Just Like Heaven The Cure Best 80’s song. That’s a good debate, though. Others on the list would be Save it for Later by the English Beat, Rio by Duran Duran, 1999 by Prince, 867-5309 by Tommy Tutone, Always Something There to Remind Me by Naked Eyes, and You Dropped a Bomb on Me by The Gap Band. Anyone have others to add?
Caroline Morris Little Miss Sunshine Caleb Hawley Not much symbolism here – just a great song with a great message. It’s my go to pick me up at the moment!
Diana McAfee Look up Child Lauren Daigle It’s easy to get overwhelmed with all the new pressures we’re experiencing, but we need to keep our heads up! I started taking virtual Zumba with a HS friend during this quarantine, and she used this song the 1st day, and I can’t get it out of my head! I love the beat, Lauren’s voice, and the message. Keep looking up!
Jessica Hardy Nonstop Drake Why not? #fliptheswitch
Sean Kennedy Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da The Beatles
Ashley Armato Pa Mayte Carlos Vives I dare you to not move to this song!
Melissa Cline Say Hey (I Love You) Michael Franti & Spearhead Try not to dance when listening to this song!
Anita Hua Signed, Sealed, Delivered (I’m Yours) Stevie Wonder Conference conference conference! 🙂 Everything worked out with Jacksonville and we got to sign off on a “rebook” option. Here we come 2023!
Ryan Cassell The Light Boy Named Banjo The first line of the song is “Sometimes it’s just hard to find sunshine in the darkness of the night.” This song always lifts my spirits and reminds me there is always a light that will guide one through challenging times. We all have an opportunity to be that light to others.
Amy Clines These are Days 10,000 Maniacs This was the theme song at my freshman orientation at Regis College back in 1994. Aside from being associcated with four the most amazing and transformative years of my life, it always lifts me up by reminding me that we can find joy and meaningful moments no matter what we are experiencing. During this time, when I see some of the amazingly good and positive things happening admist all the fear and anxiety, I know I’ll remember “these days” as a “shaft of light” during these darker times.
Melissa Cline Trashin’ The Camp Phil Collins & *NSYNC All judgments aside, my children are still young enough to appreciate all things Disney. Fun song to pretend to know how to harmonize to and dance around the house.
Arlene Outerbridge Trust In You Lauren Daigle This song has brought me through some really tough times. I often have cried in the midst of these words and also felt a wonderful sense of gratefulness as well.
Katherine Buck Tubthumping Cumbawamba I teach a freshmen class called Success Strategies that focuses on helping new students figure out how to survive and thrive in college. Week one is on resiliency. I have a slide that in big bold letters says, “YOU WILL FAIL.” We are human, and we make mistakes. Things don’t always go our way. Failing is something that will happen, and that is ok. We will not succeed in everything we do, however the lesson is that failure is not what defines you, the first step after failure can though. Show resiliency with your steps after failure and you will always be growing, improving and learning. I play this song at the end of the first class every year. In these past few weeks, I have failed a lot, however I am trying to remember resiliency is key. By the end of all this, I am going to be a pro remote recruiter! We just have to remember that COVID-19 may knock us down, but we will get up again. COVID-19, you’re never gonna keep us down!
Amy Moffatt U Can’t Touch This MC Hammer No explanation needed. Stay strong SACAC!
Claudia Jolivert Vivir mi Vida Marc Anthony The title says it all, it is time to live life to the fullest. Voy a reir… voy a bailar; I hope many of you are doing just that while in social distancing: Laughing and dancing.
Sarbeth Fleming Toast Koffee My daughter and I start almost everyday with this song. Not only is it upbeat but the message of the song is amazing. Each day we should be thankful for life everything else is a plus. “Blessings all on my life and I thank God for the journey, the earnings is just a plus. Gratitude is a must.” TOAST, SACAC!!!
LaSean Price Make You Feel Alina Baraz & Galimatias When you need to relax and catch a vibe
Jonathan Ferrell Count on Me Whitney Houston & CeCe Winans I know sometimes it seems as if, it’s never gonna end
But you’ll get through it.
Arlene Outerbridge Three Little Birds Bob Marley
Jessica Sant Ain’t No Mountain High Enough Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell Always here to support one another, no matter the circumstance. Love my SACAC community for always being a source of strength and love.
