My Pandemic Playlist

playlist

As I’ve mentioned before, I’ve been putting together an apocalypse is nigh pandemic playlist (because this is clearly a very productive use of my time 😉). I was really inspired to share it by the Sullivan Spin, after his excellent post on why Right Here Waiting for You is the perfect song for isolation (he makes a compelling case!) I don’t have nearly as good an argument for putting these songs on the list- in fact some of these are wildly inappropriate- so be prepared for some mindless ramblings… enjoy!

End of the Line– let’s start with the fact that the world is ending (kidding! …sort of…)

Over and Done With– may as well embrace the world as it is!

Don’t Stand So Close to Me– time to social distance!

I Think We’re Alone Now– hmm, not so bad, time to dance like no one’s watching… (and maybe catch Umbrella Academy on Netflix while we’re at it)

The Cave– alright, I’m craving company now…

Owner of a Lonely Heart– ok, is anyone out there?

Wish You Were Hereseriously, anyone?!

Dancing in the Dark– guess not.

Paint it Black– may as well embrace *the darkness*

We didn’t start the fire– yes, things are heating up now 😉

Take it Easy– okay time to take a break from the angst for a hot minute.

Stay Stay Stay– but I know I’ve got to stay indoors.

All You Had to Do was Stay– seriously, this is my one job.

Run Boy Run– doesn’t stop me feeling restless!

Thriller– have you seen what it’s like out there?! Scary stuff! On that note…

Zombie– cos the world’s a little crazy right now (no, I don’t think we’re at risk of being zombified, unless you think that we could become couch-potato-zombies, in which case we’re already there!)

Youngblood– still reasons to be upbeat 😉

Whatever it Takes– let’s not be all doom and gloom- we can fight this!

Fight Song– yup, still fighting it (by doing nothing). Love the Piano Guys version as well 😊

Let it Go– at the same time, it’s not totally upto us (also, I mean it when I say I love piano guys)

Don’t look back– weirdly this is one of those songs that sounds like a downer, but is actually pretty upbeat… which contrasts some of the other songs on this list!

Alright then! That’s all for now! What’s on your pandemic playlist? Let me know in the comments!

The Playlist Shuffle Tag

Hello again!! I wasn’t actually planning on posting today- but then I realised it was St Patty’s Day and I fancied a bit of Friday fun, so I decided to do this tag!! Thank you so much to Ravenclaw Book Club who technically tagged me to do the Music Tag- which has slightly different rules- but because I’m not very observant, I only noticed after I did it… ah well, there’s no going back now!

The Rules:

Put your music on shuffle and list the first 15 songs to play (no cheating) then tag 10 others to do it as well.

  1. Bad – Michael Jackson

Well this is off to a cool start- just gonna have to look forward to this going downhill…

  1. Empty Chairs at Empty Tables – Eddie Redmayne version

Yes the version is important- cos I have three versions of Les Mis on my itunes… I’m so cool 😉

  1. Get Back – The Beatles

I have a lot of Beatles music- they were bound to come up!

  1. Everything has Changed – Taylor Swift (feat. Ed Sheeran)

Ooh forgot about this song- Taylor and Ed in one song- two for one!! Also I hadn’t seen the video before, so cute!!

  1. Wonderful Remark – Van Morrison

God I love this song

  1. I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles) – The Proclaimers

*Fist pumpingly good*

  1. Everything is Awesome – The Lego Movie

  1. Handel – Water Music
  1. So Cold – Ben Cocks
  1. Don’t Stop Thinking About Tomorrow – Fleetwood Mac

(and the day after and the day after that…)

  1. Padam Padam – Edith Piaf

Je ne regrette rien 😉

  1. Be Our Guest – Beauty and the Beast

(It’s almost as if my itunes is getting excited for the new movie too…)

  1. Fast Car – Tracy Chapman

It may sound weird, but I can never actually decide if I like this song or not.

  1. I Can See Clearly Now – Jimmy Cliff
  1. Moonlight Sonata – Beethoven

All in all, not a terrible list! That could have been so much worse!

I tag:

Love Soph, Parawl Perwyl, Vick Goodwin, Rose Read, Danielle @Books, Vertigo and Tea, The Captain’s Quarters, Book Adventures, Panic at the Bookstore, Vicky@Books and Strips, and the Green Onion Blog
