This Coronavirus outbreak, and the subsequent madness of the whole god damn world, has left me feeling quite depressed. So to cheer myself up I began formulating a playlist of happy songs – as you do. But for a while that’s all it was, just a thing for myself, and it wasn’t until my mother asked if I was going to blog it, that a far more inventive idea came to me. Why just make a playlist that cheers me up about the coronavirus, when I could make an entire soundtrack for the bloody thing. So here before you, is the finished work – note, this is just a bit of fun and not to be taken as a serious account of the state of the world. We get enough of that from the news and (if you’re like me) Twitter, and while this outbreak is a serious thing, sometimes we just need to laugh.
1. Prologue – this isn’t the first crisis we’ve faced
2. The Outbreak Begins
The First Official cases are reported across the world
3. And so we took to Twitter
Honestly this is the first time in my life I’m checking Twitter several times a day.
4. Trying to Understand why this is happening
5. Wash your hands for 20 seconds
6. The Bog-roll Crisis
I didn’t even have to stretch for this one
7. More Panic Buying…I mean what were people thinking?
Oh Jeremy Corbyn, we almost had a socialist Prime Minister. This one may be slightly localized to Great Britain – but this is a British Blog, (at least for now) so what can you expect?
9. Schools Close for Most
If you think this is an inappropriate song, you should see the one I almost put here.
10. The March of the Covidiots: or this is not a song that should fit so well this late in the timeline of a Pandemic
11. And so the Army was called in
Well, the police anyway.
12. Quarantine Life
Well, guess we can’t leave our houses now.
13. Disney + released
If they didn’t want the comparison, they shouldn’t have bought the franchise.
14. And so the Great Binge watch of 2020 began…
Yes, it’s just the Simpsons theme…why? What are you watching?
15. Clap for the NHS, and Stay Home
Being serious here people, the NHS (and other healthcare systems around the world) are already overworked – don’t overwhelm them, stay at home and watch Friends.
16. Coming out of Lockdown
Speaks for itself really.
17. And Hopefully we’re all still…
