Nirvana: Smells Like Teen Spirit

With the lights out, it's less dangerous
Here we are now, entertain us
I feel stupid and contagious
Here we are now, entertain us

The Tubes: Don't Touch Me There

At this moment of surrender, darling, if you really care
Don't touch me there.

Any pandemic needs to be accompanied by Dave Lombardo's pounding drums, so I'll go with "Epidemic" by Slayer. (ETA: And judging by the Youtube comments, I'm not the only one who feels that way.)

Let's rewrite Randy Newman's SHORT PEOPLE as SICK PEOPLE or DEAD PEOPLE - easy substitutions. Till then, get Peggy Lee's Fever!

Ha! I thought of that song as soon as I saw the thread title, and then thought “There’s no way it hasn’t been mentioned already!”

"My Shit's Fucked Up" by Warren Zevon

Well I went to the doctor,
I said, "I'm feeling pretty rough"
"Let me break it to you son,
Your Shit's fucked up."

I said, "My shit's fucked up?
Well I don't see how."
He said, "The shit that used to work,
Don't work now."

Came in here specifically to post Peggy Lee's Fever. Since that has already been done, how about The Sylver's Boogie Fever?

A winter's day...


Simon & Garfunkle said it well:

Hiding in my room
Safe within my womb
I touch no one and no one touches me


Gee, that song never sounded so upbeat and hopeful before.

I don't have one yet but a funny thing happened while I was driving a few days ago. The song Freaking Out was on the radio, and I found myself thinking, the title is a good one for a pandemic playlist.

Then the next song that came on was Dangerous, and I thought hey I wonder if they are doing that on purpose?

Then the next song was You Might Be Right. LOL ok maybe the radio is just reading my mind.

The next song was Fever.

I haven't listened to music regularly for eons, but lately, my good friend Alexa had been sharing Big Band, folk, and easy listening. I'd forgotten how much I enjoyed those genres.

Another Warren Zevon:

Splendid Isolation

"I want to live all alone in the desert
I want to be like Georgia O'Keefe
I want to live on the Upper East Side
And never go down in the street

Splendid Isolation
I don't need no one
Splendid Isolation..."
