When life gets you down, sometimes you just stay down.
As the weather shifted from a pristine winter-wonderland to a slushy nightmare in less than a day this week, we found ourselves surrounded by sheets of ice formerly known as sidewalks and roads. Seasonal strolls turned into battles for stable ground that more often than not resulted in someone ending up on their bottom, “sledding” down the street. This week we bring you a post-fall playlist of impassioned tunes to put your mind at ease as you lay on the cold, hard ground. Think of it as your 24-hour emergency musical despondence service. With melodies lethargically keeping in time with your own sluggish heartbeat and vocals as wavering as your will to get up and keep trudging, each gentle pluck and fervent strum are there to comfort you in your time of need. Call the number at the bottom of the screen to let these earnest songs soundtrack your convalescence. It might not save your life but it will salvage some dignity.
