Top 20 Songs for Social Distancing
One benefit of sheltering at home is it gives you more time to listen to music, but the trick is finding the right songs for a pandemic playlist.
The Closer I Get to You by Roberta Flack doesn’t work. Neither does I Want to Hold Your Hand by the Beatles.
But Don’t Stand So Close to Me by The Police works beautifully, as does Behind the Mask by Michael Jackson.
So if you’ve been having trouble putting together an appropriate playlist, you’ve come to the right place. We’ve done the work for you! Below you will find The Ultimate Top 20 Social Distancing Playlist for your listening pleasure.
But wait, there’s more! We’ve also included list of Top 10 tunes for when the pandemic passes. Enjoy!
