Press Play on Big’s Spotify “Staylist” and Shake Those Quarantine Blues

Content by Jeremy Burgess

Madonna once said, “music makes the people together,” but we’re not supposed to do that right now.

In case you’ve been meditating in the desert for the last four weeks like Jared Leto, there’s a viral pandemic going around, and it’s forced most of us to rearrange our daily lives in order to keep our friends, family, and neighbors safe.

Here at Big, we’re still churning out good work and we are fortunate to be able to work remotely. But working from home—and being sheltered in place—can be a stressful, even anxious state of being. After all, the news isn’t exactly full of sunshine and rainbows lately.

That’s why we’re chasing rainbows the best way we know how: Music! (Like, music in general, not just that Madonna song.) Our staff compiled 80(!) of our latest favorites into a playlist we like to call “The Staylist,” perfect for lifting spirits when you’re staying inside.

Check out the tracklist below and give it a spin. We guarantee you’ll feel at least 18% happier.
