Smells Like Quarantine Spirit

This was a hastily put together playlist of mostly older 80s and 90s songs that reflects my current feelings of isolation and frustration, colored with a bit of anger and maybe a dash of optimism. I was inspired to start this while listening to a song by Ought and heard the lyrics, “today, more than any other day, I am excited to go grocery shopping!” That about sums it up. There are plenty of obvious titles here that may be a bit too “on-the-nose,” but they all reflect my current quarantine-inspired mood. Yes, it smells like quarantine spirit! What are the songs that you’re playing right now to get through this? We’ll do a post soon with songs that are more of a soothing balm to this situation, as opposed to a frustrated reaction.
