I love sharing the music I like. I also like making mixes. I also do this pretty rarely and as a result, I end up explaining the entire origin of Breakfast at Timothy’s. I’m not doing that this time.
This is a 12 song mix that receives the Coatesvillain seal of approval (if that matters to you). All songs are pop, R&B, dance or some variant as that’s the music I consistently go back to. Despite being someone who can dance (but rarely does it in public) it’s the music that makes me happiest, and I want to share that joy.
Days like these I’m glad my crappy iPhone 5C is incapable of being updated.
While the lack of storage space gives endless hours of frustration when I have to decide between taking a picture, having a downloaded podcast, having Instagram, having Spotify, or none of the above. There is the blessing that I am not awakened by the horrible news of the domestic terrorist attack in Las Vegas.
The veneer of hope is gone, and we’re confronted daily by the world’s ugliness. It takes no more than two downward scrolls on your Facebook or Twitter timelines to be confronted by a new tragedy. The weight of everything can be exhausting and demands people take an extra measure of self-care. If you don’t take care of yourself it can be hard to make it through each day. That not only touches on the issues in the world but also the things we carry in our own lives.
My form of self-care has been music, and while I have no musical abilities of my own I’ve found pleasure diving head first into music. Whether it’s old favorites, Spotify recommendations, or songs in my own collection that I haven’t spent enough time with it is just about coming up for air and gathering myself.
So without further ado here is another collection of songs for the 20th edition of Breakfast at Timothy’s. Hopefully, these songs add to your sanity and make your day at least 1% better.
