One More Thing: What song makes you feel like you can get through anything?

“Up, Up and Away” by Kid Cudi reminds me to keep dreaming – even when times are hard. Life is a journey.
Drew Parent, Mt. Laurel

“Sunday Candy” by Chance the Rapper. He’s singing about how much his grandma loves him – she calls him her Sunday candy. I love that. My Grandmom loves me that much too.
Trey Williams, Hammonton

“What a Wonderful World” by Louis Armstrong reminds me that there really IS a lot of love still in this world. I ask Alexa to play it every day.)
Carol Pletcher, Old Bridge

“Rainbow” by Kacey Musgraves is my reminder that there’s a rainbow waiting for us on the other side of this pandemic.
Sasha Hart, Shamong

Lizzo’s “Good as Hell” is like a jolt of high-voltage espresso. Even when I’m not feeling so hot, I hear that distinctive opening “I do my hair toss, check my nails” and I feel an amazing burst of swagger. It’s just that good.
Dahlia Saurez, Delran

“Doubt” by Mary J. Blige is my reminder to believe in myself.  My mom always told me I would never be anything in life. This song is about making it to the top and everything you have to go through to get to the top.
Melissa Young, West Berlin

Bruce Springsteen’s “Rosalita,” and it has nothing to do with the song itself. When I saw the Boss in concert for the first time, he started playing this song and the 60-year-old man wearing glasses and suspenders next to me rocked out the entire time – arms flailing, singing along, jumping up and down and living his best life, and I thought, “That’s the type of energy I should shoot for every day.”
Bill Harris, Cinnaminson

Right now it’s “Freedom” by George Michael. That’s all I’m looking forward to!
Madison Brown, Cinnaminson

“Salute” by Little Mix is all about women gearing up to take on a challenge. Who doesn’t love a song that makes you feel like a warrior?
Katie Wall, Mt. Laurel 

Taylor Swift’s “Ready for It?” encourages me to keep pushing myself just a little bit more – whether I’m working out at home or making my way through a busy work week. The beat is so impactful right off the bat and just doesn’t quit.
Maria Minadeo, Blackwood

P!NK’s “So What” empowers me through tough times. I would rather be alone and persevere than stay in a bad relationship and be miserable.
Essie Wolf, Washington Township

I play “High Hopes” by Panic! At The Disco when I need major motivation. It’s about dreaming big and going after what you want – even when times are hard (like now). It reminds me that no matter what is going on in the world, I have to step up if I want to be that one in a million.
Dan Mitchel, Swedesboro

Johnny Cash/ Tom Petty’s “I Won’t Back Down” reminds me of my mental toughness. I’ve had to deal with hard things my whole life so I can do it again. I will stand my ground.
Jim Edwards, Haddonfield

“Happy” by Pharrell Williams. Besides the fact that the lyrics are so positive, the music is fun and upbeat. You just can’t help but smile and dance when you hear it. It can pull you out of any bad mood before the chorus even hits.
Eva Gelpryn, Medford
