During isolation, I made myself listen and pay more attention to my inner voice than the news and buzz around me. A highlight this year was finding "Me And My Shadow" by Peggy Lee- originally released as a B-side, which I once copied on cassette off of a diner jukebox in the 90s so that I could practice the bass line. And also, the incredible Julie Coker (Nigerian TV personality/journalist in the 60s-70s) reissue that came out this past year- who wrote and sang this lost disco classic about spreading gossip and misinformation. Every one of these songs has given me either conscious motivation, affirmation, or just some groovy beats to dance to during this lockdown.
