Sing through coronavirus

So with coronavirus no doubt starting to take a toll on the mental health of members of this community, why not use this thread to post favourite songs or music that we find inspirational to help us through?

I'l start:

Every Storm Runs Outta Rain-Gary Allen

kropotkin1951

I'm afraid if you know this song well you are at high risk. I couldn't resist.

Simpletons - The Bats

Here are some alternate lyrics for people's favourite sing along.

Coronavirus Rhapsody:

Is this a sore throat?
Is this just allergies?
Caught in a lockdown
No escape from reality.
Don’t touch your eyes
Just hand sanitize quicklyyyyy
I’m just a poor boy, no job security
Because of easy spread, even though
washed your hands, laying low
I look out the window, the curve doesn’t look flatter to me, to me

mama, just killed a man
i didn’t stay inside in bed
I walked by him, now he’s dead
mama, life was so much fun
but now I’ve caught this unforgiving plague
Mamma, oooooh
didn’t mean to make them die
if I’m not back to work this time tomorrow
carry on, carry on as if people didn’t matter

Choir! Choir! Choir! Facebook Sing-Along Unites People During Coronavirus Crisis

https://www.huffingtonpost.ca/entry/coronavirus-singalong-facebook-music...

"Canadians Daveed Goldman and Nabu Adilman started Choir! Choir! Choir! as a low-pressure, singing drop-in in Toronto, where the focus was on community-building and singing for fun. No talent required. But with the world in social distancing mode during the coronavirus pandemic, they decided to set up a virtual sing-along. And more than 100,000 people from several countries joined them on Facebook Live..."

The Canticle Of The Coronavirus:

Quote:

Community members in Wolseley are practising social distancing in their own way, serenading neighbours, dog walkers and passersby but from a safe distance. 

More than a dozen individuals and families spread out in front of their homes and raised their voices to the tune of Yellow Submarine by the Beatles on Saturday afternoon, under sunny skies on Canora Street.

Why Yellow Submarine? "Because that song also evokes both connection and isolation," explained Tabitha Langel, who encouraged residents to pick up instruments and join in the singalong.

I found this one on Judy Rebick's Twitter. It's by Martha Chavez called "I'm not leaving on a jet plane"

Sensation is right! Thanks Laine.

That was wonderful! Not directly related to covid-19, but a tribute to his mum and to women in Africa bringing up children under very difficult conditions (she was a street vendor, and also seems to be a small farmer)

Jeff Diffie died from COVID. Just a couple of days ago, before I knew he was ill, I was playing my favourite version of his classic hit because it seemed apropos for the times. I hope he is propped up tonight.

I suspect he will have to lean on a jukebox if he is going to perform.
