LIFE SUPPORT: MY GO-TO PLAYLIST FOR TROUBLED TIMES
4/3/20

I assembled this playlist some time ago, and given recent events (including some blues that directly impinged on my family), I've come to rely on it as an emotional balm. It moves freely between genres and eras; my only criterion was every song had to go deep. It's heavy on soulful classic rock (Stones, Floyd, VU, Elton, Jimi) singer/songwriters (Joni, Van, Nilsson, Zevon) and assorted curveballs (Scritti Politti, Roxy Music, Ted Leo). Here's hoping the Kleenex supply is sufficient. —Simon Glickman
