Songs for Solitude

Susie, I’ve discovered lots of wonderful things through the Stuff Posts. Could you make us a playlist of some of your favourite songs? Something to spread some light in these strange days. Thank you so much for making such beautiful things. Love and quarantine, Becky.

Dear Becky, I have been listening to a lot of music in lockdown, and I keep finding myself going back to my old favourites. Here is a bunch of songs—most of them have been featured on the Stuff Page over the years. I hope they lift you up, the way they lift me! We can find such collective comfort in songs. They are, indeed, the most precious and sustaining of things. Love, Susie x
