Music to your ears: Check out playlists curated by your colleagues!

June 21, 2021  //  FOUND IN: Our Employees,

Today is World Music Day or Fete de la Musique, an annual celebration to honor musicians and music around the world. Originally celebrated in Paris, France in 1982, World Music Day is now celebrated in more than 120 countries across the globe.

At Michigan Medicine, faculty and staff understand the power of music and how it inspires and heals our patients. In celebration of this day, we would like to share the first-ever Michigan Medicine playlists!

Headlines compiled a list of more than 100 songs that colleagues submitted.

There are tunes that relax, inspire, get you dancing or pondering more about life. There are songs from Alicia Keys, Yanni, The Beatles, Japanese Breakfast, Beyonce, Luciano Pavarotti, Homayoun Shajarian and many more!

We also asked for interesting stories or memories about a song or concert. All stories are included in the full list, but here are a few:

“It’s impossible to be in a bad mood when listening to this song!” (September – Earth, Wind and Fire)

“I drove 12 hours from Atlanta to Michigan in a snow storm, listening to Mary J. Blige. Her album got me home.” (Don’t Go – Mary J. Blige)

“I listened to every Beatles album every time I drove home from college. I could gauge how far I was from home based on where I was in the rotation.” (Here Comes the Sun – The Beatles/George Harrison)

“I come out of the hospital after a day’s work, see the sun, put on headphones and walk to my car — and this song is the perfect theme.” (It’s a Beautiful Day – U2)

Check out the full list here: Michigan Medicine Playlist 2021.

Whether you are in the mood to dance or relax, Headlines wishes you a Happy World Music Day!
