Quarantunes Playlist Aidan rogers

Covid-19, or the Coronavirus, has put life on pause, and while you’re quarantined, it is good to lift your head from screens for a minute and listen to some music. We’ve put together a playlist with songs ranging from comedic covers to rock hits in hopes of bringing some musical joy.

“Virus Alert” - Weird Al Yankovic

VIRUS ALERT!!! For anyone that may have missed the Coronavirus pandemic currently facing humanity, this song is your official warning.

“What’s Going On?” - Marvin Gaye

The title of this song seems to be running through everyone’s mind: What's going on?!

“Where Did Everyone Go?” - Nat King Cole

This song represents the uncomfortable emptiness of our streets, stores and restaurants due to social distancing. Even what are usually busy Saturday afternoons, now yield little to no activity out and around in Westport.

"Don't Stand So Close To ME" - The Police

Keeping oneself quarantined is a struggle within itself, but when one needs to go out into public, this mission becomes even more ambitious. This up-beat song by The Police projects that feeling one keeps to themselves when trying to keep a safe distance from others in public.

“Hands Clean” - Alanis Morissette

This song represents an essential precaution everyone must take in order to keep themselves and those around them healthy. Everyone must return to the first grade mindset of singing your ABC’s as you wash the bacteria away.

“Waiting on the World to Change” - John Mayer

This is a hard time for everyone. As John Mayor puts it in this slower tune from John his album Continuum, all we can do is wait for the world to change. This is simply a problem that needs to run its course, and all we can do is try our best to keep one and other healthy.

"Lean On Me" - Bill Withers

As Bill Withers expresses in this song, when times get tough we must all lean on and others. Help an elderly neighbor, give to a less fortunate community, and most importantly, stay quarantined. The government and its resources cannot help everyone in need, so it's vitally important that we help our community however we can.

Thank you for listening, and stay healthy!
