Disclamer: We know and understand Covid-19 is a very serious pandemic that should not be taken lightly, but with all of the seriousness in the world we thought it would be fun to make a playlist about Covid-19.

We hope this makes you smile and gives you some inspiration for what song to sing in your head, or out loud, while washing your hands.
