Annie's Pick
FREEDOM, Jon Batiste

If you're looking for a feel-good song to close out the summer, Jon Batiste's "FREEDOM" is a great choice. This song has been a staple on my playlist ever since its performance at the 2022 Grammys. It also won Best Music Video, so check that out too!

Sam's Pick
Bundle of Joy (from Inside Out), Michael Giacchino

My favorite Pixar movie, without question, is Inside Out. Re-watching it with my daughter recently reminded me just how poignant the main theme ("Bundle of Joy") is, and it made me want to play it on the piano instantly. I can't wait to see the sequel next year!

Becca's Pick
Mine, Taylor Swift

Take me back to 2010, when Taylor Swift's Speak Now album was first released. Her Speak Now (Taylor's Version) 2023 album was re-recorded and released last month, prompting me to reminisce what life was like over a decade ago when these songs played over the car radio/cd player. The first track on the album "Mine" is a great, feel-good track to include on my piano set list as summer comes to a close.
