The sun is coming up earlier, the flowers are blooming, but all the while your nose is trying to sing a little tune! Along with the usual antihistamines and nasal irrigation systems, you always need a good playlist to divert and/or mask any whistling of the nose from potential onlookers/friends/suitors/etc. The key is to play all songs at FULL volume!
1. “Little of Your Love” – Haim
This song is not only a bop, but there’s a lot going on so it’s great for when you have just a lot of phlegm going on.
2. “The Times They Are A-Changin'” – Bob Dylan
If you’ve never heard of Bob Dylan, all you have to know is that his songs have a lot of harmonica interludes. Play this classic about political overthrow and social change when you have a nose that whistles just a little too much every time you attempt to exhale. Reflect on a time when there was no pollen or any dust irritants for you. It was a comfortable time, but was it necessary?
3. “Heart of Gold” – Neil Young
You may have a heart of gold, but you still have a whistle for a nose. To distract from that, use this song when you have mild nasal irritation. It’s relaxing and has quite a bit of harmonica as well, so if someone hears your whistling nose, they’ll just assume it’s part of the song.
4. “Flute Sonata in E-Flat Major, BWV 1031: II. Siciliano” – Johann Sebastian Bach
Just thought I’d add a piece with a flute because that’s what your nose is. A beautiful, but sad little flute.
5. “Caught A Lite Sneeze” – Tori Amos
As the title suggests, play this when you get an attack of the 3 sneezes in a row.
6. “Pills” – St. Vincent
Sorry St. Vincent, but I have a deviated septum which means I have to take some medication for my nose that doesn’t want to work. You can dance to this as you attempt to search for a solution through WebMD, herbs, prayer, pills, anything!
7. “Just Like A Woman” – Bob Dylan
More harmonica! Listen while refreshing the weather page to see if the pollen count outside has gone down. (It won’t…)
8. “BOOGIE” – BROCKHAMPTON
Refer to Song (1) for the same application. Do you hear that little siren in the background? That’s our collective stuffy nose having an uncredited solo on this banger.
