With everyone at home and looking for new forms of entertainment, Instagram challenges have made an appearance. They’re the modern day chain email equivalent, but without the 7 year curse if you don’t participate. My favorite is the 30 day song challenge because I get to be exposed to new music. However, instead of annoying others with 30 consecutive posts, I’ll annoy them just once with a somewhat long post.

Some song suggestions during these trying times:

Day 1: A song you like with a color in the title: That Green Gentleman by Panic! at the Disco
Day 2: A song you like with a number in the title: December, 1963 by Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons

Day 5: A song that needs to be played loud: Good as Hell by Lizzo
Day 6: A song that makes you dance: Dancing Queen by ABBA

  1. Thanks! I just read your ranking of Panic! albums, and I completely agree. The whimsical folksiness was what made it my favorite, and Northern Downpour, The Green Gentleman, and Nine in the Afternoon are my absolute favorites.
