Ring the alarm. A pandemic is called and there are no visible signs proving COVID-19 will subside within forthcoming months. Thus, it's time for us to practice alternative ways to express formalities without upsetting others. Besides modifying mandatory greetings, another determinant on everyone's lips now is to minimize infection by social distancing.
Surrounded by enthusiastic and chummy pals who still don't understand the concept of personal space? Preserve those mutual friendly feelings by looping our 'Social Distancing' playlist on the background (audible, of course).
'All Alone' — Fun
"And I feel so all alone
No one's gonna fix me when I'm broke"
That initially feeling when there's no physical contact or interaction anymore? You'll get used to it. Hey, Facetime works still.
'Gooey' — Glass Animals
"Fresh out of an icky gooey womb
A woozy womb
Dope so good, a silky smooth perfume"
Beware of unknown slimy substances secreted out of human bodies. It could be just flu, or something more serious.
'Walking Away' — Haim
"You see, now I'm not coming around
Coming around, coming around
I'm walking away, walking away, walking away
Walking away, walking away"
If you aren't leaving, surely I am.
'Fever' — Kylie Minogue
"Fever sure has got me good
What you do when fever takes hold?"
Uh, keep at least one metre or avoid being in the same room as me. Thanks.
'I'm So Tired' — Lauv (feat. Troye Sivan)
"Just wanna go home, wanna go home
Wanna go home, whoa"
How many times do I have to repeat myself that I wanna go home?
'You Make Me Sick' — P!nk
"You make me sick
I want you and I am hating it"
Exercise self-control and don protective gear if needed.
'Don't Touch My Hair' — Solange
"Don't touch what's there
When it's the feelings I wear"
We're living in sensitive times. Thus, every strand counts.
'The Distance Between Us' — Sophie Ellis Bextor
"The distance between us
'Cos close is never close enough"
Obviously far is never far enough either.
'No Scrubs' — TLC
"No, I don't want no scrubs
A scrub is a guy that can't get no love from me"
No scrubs or only a scrub? You should scrub yourself multiple times daily now.
'Take Shelter' — Years & Years
Take the pressure,
Do what you want tonight, it's alright"
And do whatever you want at home! Because nobody will judge.
