Live Music in Context Pandemic Playlists

Prof. Anthony DelDonna gave students in Music 200 (Live Music in Context) the following prompt for their pandemic playlists:

In light of the Covid-19 outbreak and alert, many communities have adopted social distancing and quarantine. Nevertheless, the public around the world has expressed themselves through music. Spend some time thinking about your own feelings on the current situation and how music (or what music) helps you to express your thoughts, actions, and reactions.  Please compile a playlist of three songs and/or videos along with a brief reflection explaining your choices and perspectives.
