The pandemic is reframing how we consume music and the space it holds in our lives. We're experiencing a kind of collective trauma. Those of us in quarantine are soundtracking our isolation. (What's a club banger when the club is your living room?) People are losing their jobs and loved ones to COVID-19. The government is continually failing us. I recently told a friend I couldn't listen to the new Future Islands song because it was too calming. "It's not right for my headspace," I said. "I need, like, electroshock therapy."

Upon first glance, Amazon's ($NASDAQ:AMZN) best-selling CDs and vinyl doesn't necessarily capture that frustration. This selection of Amazon's top best-sellers from April to July finds Americans coping with COVID-19 through escapism. Boomers are feeling nostalgic and listening to classic rock. Lady Gaga's latest album takes us to another planet. There are either a lot of parents trying to appease their restless children with the Frozen 2 soundtrack or a lot of adults trying to soothe their inner child. Or, more likely, both.
