Top 10 Best Songs for a Coronavirus (COVID-19) Playlist

Actress Rita Wilson, wife of Tom Hanks and one of the first celebrities diagnosed with COVID-19, created and shared her own Spotify playlist of "Quarantunes" filled with songs for dealing with isolation. Her list includes such appropriately titled classics as Lonely People (America), All By Myself (Eric Carmen), and Don't Stand So Close to Me (The Police).

For this list, pick which songs you would have in your personal Coronavirus playlist. Are they about isolation, quarantine, sickness, or are they about your feelings on the state of the world?
The Top Ten
1 The Lazy Song - Bruno Mars
2 My Immortal - Evanescence

This is the perfect song to listen to when you think about the loss of loved ones, including the coronavirus victims and even your loved ones. It even seems to be influenced by Enya's Only Time and Watermark, along with the Edward Scissorhands theme. It also influenced Josh Groban's Believe for the Polar Express and Lana Del Rey's edition of Once Upon a Dream for Maleficent.

When you lose a loved one due to the COVID-19 outbreak, this would be a good song to play.

3 Wasted on You - Evanescence
4 The Final Countdown - Europe

Please don't tell me this means this is not a good song.

5 Don't Stand So Close to Me - The Police
6 Social Disease - Bon Jovi

That's what I was thinking while listening to the entire album with this song.

7 Suicide Song - Hatsune Miku
8 Help! - The Beatles
9 American Idiot - Green Day
10 Another One Bites the Dust - Queen
The Contenders
11 Bad Medicine - Bon Jovi
12 Blinded by Fear - At the Gates
13 In the End - Linkin Park
14 Something for the Pain - Bon Jovi
15 We're Not Gonna Take It - Twisted Sister
16 Take Back - Green Day

Thank you to whoever put this on here. This song definitely expresses my anger about the pandemic, or if this all started by a guy wanting to eat bat soup, forget you!

17 Radioactive - Imagine Dragons

"This is it, the apocalypse." There are some other lines from the song also that make it perfect.

18 Livin' on a Prayer - Bon Jovi
19 How to Save a Life - The Fray
20 Hard Times - Paramore
21 It's the End of the World as We Know It (And I Feel Fine) - R.E.M.

This song resurfaced ever since the news about the coronavirus. It's popular once again and hit high on the charts. Many people are feeling scared and panic that the world's going to end due to the coronavirus, even though it won't.

The coronavirus pandemic is believed to possibly become the worst outbreak since the 1918 Spanish flu pandemic if we don't take the right precautions.

22 Rats - Ghost
23 Pandemic - Accept
24 Toxic - Britney Spears
25 Let’s Be Friends - Carly Rae Jepsen

This song has the perfect combination of lighthearted elements along with a catchy style, beat, and heartwarming lyrics. It teaches us to be friends even in the midst of difficult times. There are different types of friends, though best friends are the best.

It has the usual romantic words of her songs but also has heartwarming messages about true friendship at the same time. It's catchy, ranging from soft to epic to typical throughout the song. Though I do admit its beat has a likeness to that of Billie Eilish's Bad Guy and Ashley Tisdale's Voices in My Head at times, and at other parts, it's more like common modern pop.

It combines indie-pop with electro-synth wave and more common modern pop all in sequence. Yet, unlike most songs playing nowadays which are filled with inappropriate content repeating most of the way through, this has very little of that. In fact, there are only inappropriate bits as the last third of the song starts playing where she calls someone a D, though she mainly refers to that as an idiot, but then again that was just part of the song's storyline.

It's like her best song after Call Me Maybe, which seems of this quality as well and is dancey too though this has more heartwarming lyrics which puts this up here. I agree the music video looks kind of cheesy but the song far outshines it. Yet it was her first song of 2020 and she decided to release it before Valentine's Day which was clever. We can be friends whether face to face or digitally during quarantine from the coronavirus outbreak.

It honestly deserves WAY more recognition and a high spot on the Billboard Hot 100 and 200 at some point. Perfect for anyone in quarantine in such matters.
