Songs for Shut-Ins

Songs for Shut-Ins

By Steve Sullivan

My Songs for Shut-Ins project posts songs with some spiritual value (or just plain fun) to entertain people who are Sheltering at Home or just need some more joy in their lives.

(What’s So Funny About) Peace, Love, & Understanding

Nick Lowe wrote this in a sarcastic frame of mind, but Elvis Costello made it an anthem for a better world.  Sing along!

Come the Day

Originally by The Seekers. This song by Bruce Woodley is a great anthem for here and now.  Sing along!

“Daydream Believer”

Originally by the Monkeys. It’s pure fun, and it’s great singing along with friends. I’m so grateful that John Stewart created it for all of us to enjoy.  (Note: His original version said “Now you know how FUNKY I can be.”)  Sing along!

“Love & Mercy”

This is one of my favorite Brian Wilson songs.  For years, he’s ended all his concerts with it.  Sing along!
