The Perfect COVID-19 Theme Song

This isn't going away anytime soon folks and it just made sense to consolidate all the COVID-19 stuff in one location.

The Perfect COVID-19 Theme Song

Post by absinthe beginner » Sun Mar 22, 2020 11:26 pm

Was talking to my cousin last night about life in the time of COVID-19, and she made the comment "These are strange days." Of course the John Lennon song "Nobody Told Me (there'd be days like these) came to mind, and I sent it to her - she loved it (first heard since she's in her 20s and most of today's music sucks the sweat off a dead man's balls). With let said, let's start the Official ZS Coronavirus Playlist!

Having just returned from my local supermarket feeling like Clara Peller, there can only be one song...

I've been rocking REM "it's the end of the world and we know it" every morning at the hospital.

I'm pretty old school. My kid has told me, somewhat reluctantly and with love, that COVID-19 is also known as Boomer Remover. So I like to get on that flashing dance floor with the Bee Gees and, brothers and sisters, I'm just Staying Alive! This extended version has some great video cuts. Enjoy!

Edit to try to fix link (my kid is still sleeping, otherwise he would have fixed this already :lol: )

A year has come, a year has gone,
Still hanging tough, the blues is going on.
Fingers walk the edge of time,
My heart is burning, I'm ready to fly.

All we can do is to sit and wait,
All we can do is just to sit and wait.
They say: All we can do is to sit and wait,
All we can do, yeah, that's what they say.
Sit and wait, sit and wait, just sit and wait.

I could run away and touch the sun,
Where there's a spark could be a fire.
Impossible dreams? Promises?
Still I ain't nothing, I ain't nowhere.

All we can do is to sit and wait,...
All we can do is to sit and wait,....

All we can do is to sit and wait,....

God there must be hundreds of songs that would relate to our situation
From the lighter themed
[YouTube][YouTube][/YouTube][/YouTube]


To more darker more fatalistic



Or maybe just borrow one from a previous plague

Ring-a-round the rosie,
A pocket full of posies,
Ashes! Ashes!
We all fall down
Not all those who wander are lost

John Titor was right <--- :ohdear: Way past the point of going gray man. See you on the other side ( or not :wink: )

I'm going to go with "Alice's Restaurant" by Arlo Guthrie.

Why?

Because like the song, most people's reaction to the outbreak makes NO GOD-DAMNED SENSE!

Wires by Red Fang

The video seems unintentionally relevant.

Aenima by Tool

Some say the end is near
Some say we'll see Armageddon soon
I certainly hope we will
I sure could use a vacation from this
Bullshit three ring circus sideshow of
Freaks
Here in this hopeless fucking hole we call LA
The only way to fix it is to flush it all away
Any fucking time, any fucking day
Learn to swim, see you down in Arizona Bay
Fret for your figure and
Fret for your latte and
Fret for your lawsuit and
Fret for your hairpiece and
Fret for your Prozac and
Fret for your pilot and
Fret for your contract and
Fret for your car
It's a
Bullshit three ring circus sideshow of
Freaks
Here in this hopeless fucking hole we call L.A.
The only way to fix it is to flush it all away
Any fucking time, any fucking day
Learn to swim, see you down in Arizona Bay
Some say a comet will fall from the sky
Followed by meteor showers and tidal waves
Followed by fault lines that cannot sit still
Followed by millions of dumbfounded dipshits
And some say the end is near
Some say we'll see Armageddon soon
I certainly hope we will
I sure could use a vacation from this
Stupid shit, silly shit, stupid shit
One great big festering neon distraction,
I've a suggestion to keep you all occupied
Learn to swim, learn to swim, learn to swim
Mom's gonna fix it all soon
Mom's comin' 'round to put it back the way it ought to be
Learn to swim
Fuck L Ron Hubbard and
Fuck all his clones
Fuck all those gun-toting
Hip gangster wannabes
Learn to swim
Fuck retro anything
Fuck your tattoos
Fuck all you junkies and
Fuck your short memory
Learn to swim
Fuck smiley glad-hands
With hidden agendas
Fuck these dysfunctional
Insecure actresses
Learn to swim
'Cause I'm praying for rain
And I'm praying for tidal waves
I wanna see the ground give way
I wanna watch it all go down
Mom please flush it all away
I wanna see it go right in and down
I wanna watch it go right in
Watch you flush it all away
Time to bring it down again
Don't just call me pessimist
Try and read between the lines
I can't imagine why you wouldn't
Welcome any change, my friend
I wanna see it come down
Burn it down
Suck it down
Flush it down

With all the ZS prodigal sons returning, this song seems apropos.
