THE COVID-19 BLUES: A PLAYLIST
FOR THE ISOLATED
4/3/20

On 3/14, the first day it was apparent people in New York and Los Angeles were going to be spending a lot of time at home indoors, I created a list of songs about isolation and being alone with loved ones, illness and health, hope and danger. In the weeks since, I’ve been adding as a new one is tipped on social media or in a story or just crosses my mind. Some of the songs rely on metaphors or a stretch in the meaning: Thunderclap Newman’s “Something in the Air,”  The Beatles’ “Tomorrow Never Knows” and Talking Heads’ “Warning Sign.” Others hit the nail on the head: Rev. Gary Davis’ “Death Don’t Have No Mercy,” Warren Zevon’s “Don’t Get Sick” and Spirit’s “Nature’s Way.”  - Phil Gallo
