Well, it certainly IS Friday. We have this fancy Weekend Survival guide published for you, but much like most Fridays these days, we felt we ALL needed more music. So we rallied some of our team members and BYT LIveStream performers and asked them what songs are keeping their spirits at least (semi) high right now: the results are below if you are in the mood for music videos and also ON THIS SPOTIFY PLAYLIST (plus some bonus songs chosen by the #BYThings instagram followers).
P.S. Consider this an open thread – leave your picks in the comments and we’ll add them to the playlist. Last week’s picks are here.

I’ve just fully been going down YouTube autoplay rabbit holes lately because there’s fuck all else to do, and it’s had some p. decent results for the most part! This is a track edit I didn’t even know I needed (like, I NEVER wanna be so bold as to say ANYTHING tops a France Gall oridge, but…) – super good for looking at yourself in the mirror while dancing with furrowed eyebrows.
This week’s isolation anthtem is all about enjoying your own company*. *typed in between the 3 virtual coffee dates I scheduled for this am because I am going stir crazy and can’t be in a room with myself for this long. Also TikTok (or TimTom as my friend and I call it, don’t ask) is my main source of music.
For if you are like me and have been having the most problems sleeping during the quarantimes, a song called 3am which is also perfect for 3am dance parties.
