Still Listening: Blindsided

December 5, 2015

Bon Iver Blindsided

Today’s featured Still Listening song is “Blindsided” by Bon Iver. Whether it was the first diagnosis of an illness that would linger, or the shock of sudden loss, many of us likely have a deeper sense of the meaning of the word “blindsided” than most. Bon Iver’s slow, sad melody on this theme is one of my favorites. Have a favorite song that you think might help another parent? Mention it in the comments, and remember to follow our Spotify account where you can hear more songs, listen to playlists, or add to our ever growing list of community-generated songs for parents experiencing loss.
