Staff members at hospitals in the New York metropolitan area have been playing songs like “Don’t Stop Believin’,” the “Rocky” theme and “Every Breath You Take” to celebrate the release of patients who had been hospitalized because of the coronavirus.
The Times reports:
Many have chosen “Here Comes the Sun,” long associated with finding joy through hard times. When it and other songs are played, it is not only a tribute to the resilience of the patient, but also an anthem of affirmation for the medical professionals: Through long shifts, with few positive moments and supplies stretched thin, they have saved another life.
What are your “songs of hope”? Which song would you choose to celebrate making it through a difficult time or achieving a milestone? Why? What does this song symbolize for you?
