Even though you may be quarantined, there are so many things to do that you entertain yourself. You could get started on homework, complete a puzzle, FaceTime your friends or start a new hobby. One thing that pairs well with almost everything you can do when you’re in quarantine is listening to music!
Spotify, Apple Music and every other music streaming service is likely working overtime right now. I’ve made a Spotify playlist that has all of my favorite nostalgic classics because staying inside is the perfect opportunity to reminisce on the music of years past. I’ve listed a few of the songs from the playlist, so if you do not use Spotify, you could easily add them to your Queue!
Songs“Unwritten” by Natasha Bedingfield
One of the songs you NEED in your back-pocket for your next karaoke takeover.
Best Line: I’m just beginning, the pen’s in my hand
“Marry Me” by Train
Such a cute song that warms my forever single heart.
Best Line: You wear white and I’ll wear out the words I love you
“Single Ladies” by Beyonce
The best anthem to get ready for a night out, tbh.
Best Line: Just broke up (up) I’m doing my own little thing
“The Climb” by Miley Cyrus
The quickest way to give me flashbacks to my elementary school talent show.
Best Line: There’s always gonna be another mountain, I’m always gonna wanna make it move
“Bleeding Love” by Leona Lewis
I cannot express how much of a different person I become when I listen to this song. I can somehow perfectly relate to singing my heart out in the middle of times square, obviously.
Best Line: But nothing’s greater, than the rush that comes with your embrace
“Put Your Records On” by Corrine Bailey
While I can’t think of this song without thinking of the Chippettes jamming out on a rooftop, it’s a bop.
Best Line: Sapphire and faded jeans, I hope you get your dreams
“Set Fire To The Rain” by Adele
This song is one of the many that made the world take Adele seriously, and it deserves all your respect.
Best Line: My hands, they were strong, But my knees were far too weak
“Eenie Meenie” by Sean Kingston ft. Justin Bieber
One of my fav JB songs, quite iconic, if I do say so myself.
Best Line: Can’t make up your mind, mind, mind, mind, mind
“Lucky” by Jason Mraz
This is one of the sweetest songs I’ve ever heard still to this day, and it automatically evokes daydreaming of falling in love.
Best Line: They don’t know how long it takes, waiting for a love like this
“No One” by Alicia Keys
I do not know anyone that doesn’t know this song. Talk about a cultural reset…
Best Line: Everything’s gonna be alright, People keep talking, they can say what they like
“Diamonds” by Rihanna
Another song that defined an era. Everyone and every radio station was singing this song.
Best Line: You’re a shooting star I see, a vision of ecstasy
“Beautiful Soul” by Jesse McCartney
This song introduced me to the amazing-ness that Jesse McCartney. I still have a childhood crush on this wholesome man.
Best Line: I don’t want my love to go to waste, I want you and your beautiful soul
“ Like A Boy” by Ciara
You probably remember this one from middle school.
Best Line: If I played you like a toy, Sometimes I wish I could act like a boy
“…Baby One More Time” by Britney Spears
This song put Spears on the map and is one of the greatest throwback songs to date.
Best Line: My loneliness is killing me (and I)
“Animal” by Neon Trees
I turn into a literal rockstar when this song comes on, and it’s the greatest feeling.
Best Line: And I’m afraid I won’t get out alive, No, I won’t sleep tonight
“No Scrubs” by TLC
This song makes me remember my worth and how powerful TLC was.
Best Line: Hanging out the passenger side,Of his best friend’s ride, Trying to holler at me
“Wannabe” by Spice Girls
One of my favorite songs to sing with my friends. I think it brings us closer every time.
Best Line: If you wanna be my lover, you gotta get with my friends
