Tuesday Tunes: “Sunday Candy” by Donnie Trumpet & The Social Experiment

I recently stumbled upon this song and listened to it on repeat for about five days straight. And to be honest, I hadn’t really listened to the lyrics until the other day. I was just jamming along because of how upbeat it sounded and because of the good vibes it sent through my speakers. So when I actually sat down and listened to the lyrics, I fell even more in love.

Chance the Rapper wrote this song about his Grandma. Not about some girl he met. About his loving Grandmother who helped raise him, put a roof over his head, fed him and brought him to church every Sunday.

He sings of his appreciation and adoration of his Grandmother. He lets her know that whenever he thinks of her, he is reminded of her graciousness and giving soul.

So if you want a song to dance and sing along to, while also feeling all warm and fuzzy inside, please click play in the video above.

Excuse me while I go clean up the mess my heart made after it melted all over the floor just now.

 

Tuesday Tunes. 🎧 Because Music Heals🎧

So instead of doing a song of the week, I’m now going to be sharing what I call: Tuesday Tunes! 

Same concept as my song of the week posts: they will be songs that I find myself feeling a close connection to and hope to help others feel the same way or inspire people to seek their own songs that make them feel supported, heard, loved, inspired, excited, motivated and understood. Because, music heals, people. We all need music for the soul to turn to.

My first Tuesday tune is…drumroll pleaaaaasseee: “Another Man’s Shoes” by Drew Holcomb. (I listened to the acoustic version on Spotify: that’s the one I recommend listening to)

  
It’s essentially pointing out that everyone has something that they’re struggling with so we need to try to put ourselves in their shoes as to not judge them. And if we do that and still can’t understand that they too may be facing a hardship, then we need to keep on walking. 

  
It’s a song that made me feel understood not only as a spoonie but as a human being. 

Give it a listen!
