So almost everywhere in the world, this strange year of 2020, with the pandemic, quarantine, various unrest, etc. has made it a very different year then many others.
We songwriters don't live in a vacuum, of course, and I suspect that some of what's happening will reflect the larger world around us, especially at a time like this.
(That's not to say, of course, that songs about a million other things are not welcome at this time, just an acknowledgement that these times are stranger then 'usual' for most of us. Those who know my stuff know that I sometimes (not all the time, but sometimes) write so-called 'poltiical' or 'topical' songs about what's going on in the larger world.... and I see that many others have done the same recently.
here's a not-by-any-means complete list of some 5090 songs this year that seem to address those larger issues. First two are mine (out of three I've done in total up to now) and the rest are marked. I'd love for people to add to this thread and this list and write your own songs about these larger concerns and post here, should the muse/spirit/whatever move you to do so! Stay safe and stay creative, everyone!
