Tunes currently on my pandemic playlist, inspired by The ‘Rona…
SUITIN’ UP FOR THE SUPERMARKET
Get Back, by Ludacris
Posting the squeaky clean version here, but believe me, next time I roll up to Target I’ll be blasting the unedited version in my Mazda.
Move B*****, by Ludacris
Never in a million years did I expect Ludacris to create so many songs appropriate for social distancing.
Beat It, by Michael Jackson
What you sing to the person who’s been standing in front of the baby carrots for five minutes and refuses to acknowledge that you’re politely waiting six feet away.
Don’t Stand So Close to Me, by The Police
Me when I’m in Target.
I Ran (So Far Away), by A Flock of Seagulls
Me when I’m leaving Target.
WHEN YOU’RE FEELIN’ LONELY TEARDROPS
I Think We’re Alone Now, by Tiffany
Isolation lyrics at their finest.
So Far Away, Carole King
The song that plays in my head when I see all the cats I want to pet.
Only the Lonely, by The Motels
Please enjoy the unblended contour while you sing along to the catchy chorus (“Only the lonely can play!”).
All By Myself, by Celine Dion
Girl, you know I had to do it. 😁
Work from Home, by Fifth Harmony
This song is all of us.
Don’t Get Around Much Anymore, by Nat King Cole
Well, I walk around the neighborhood. That’s about it.
Things Can Only Get Better, by Howard Jones
I give it two years.
Hold On, by Wilson Philips
Hang in there, and remember it’s not gonna last forever (even if it feels like it).
Kiss Them For Me, Siouxsie and the Banshees
I may be delayed.
To Be With You, by Mr. Big
I mostly love this for the big hair, TBH.
FILED UNDER “DEALING WITH THE UNEMPLOYMENT OFFICE”
Confusion, by New Order
The one word that pretty much sums up every dealing I’ve had with the California EDD so far.
What You Waiting For, by Gwen Stefani
Dear Gwen, I’m waiting for someone on the other end of this EDD help line to pick up the call.
Patience, by Guns ‘N’ Roses
Apparently, I have no more left. (That’s what happens when you’re on hold for 45 minutes before being hung up on.)
SONGS FOR SWEATING IT OUT
U Can’t Touch This, by MC Hammer
Wait till I douse it with Lysol first!
Dancing With Myself, by Billy Idol
No, I haven’t danced with myself lately, but when I do, it will be to this song.
Isolation, by Joy Division
Stayin’ Alive, by Bee Gees
This one is self-explanatory. 😬
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
