Quarantine, lockdown, staying the hell away from people. It's all we seem able to do at the moment so let's build a playlist of related songs and music on the theme of the social distancing & general isolation to see us all through this challenging time & let's be alone together. I'll kick off with this glaringly obvious one
In My Room - The Beach Boys We Gotta Get Out of This Place - The Animals Brain Damage/Eclipse - Pink Floyd Same Deep Water As You - The Cure The Wretched - NIN Big Brother - David Bowie Dear God - XTC On the Beach - Neil Young Hardly Getting Over It - Husker Du Cigarettes & Alcohol - Oasis Darkness on the Edge of Town - Bruce Springsteen Under Pressure - David Bowie & Queen Push the Sky Away - Nick Cave Armageddon Time - The Clash Fade to Black - Metallica Gimme Shelter - The Rolling Stones Yer Blues - The Beatles (sorry steve ) White Room - Cream All Along the Watchtower - Bob Dylan/Jimi Hendrix Dead, Drunk & Naked - Drive-by Truckers My Shiat's Fooked Up - Warren Zevon to name a few....
A Spanish after punk classic called Autosuficiencia (self-sufficiency) from Parálisis Permanente, one of the best 80's bands from here. His singer, the gifted Eduardo Benavente, tragically died in car crash after a gig. He has been since then a local legend.
I'm looking in the mirror and I feel fine I only think of myself all the time I only think of myself all the time
I read books understood by no one else Listen to my voice recorded by myself Listen to my voice recorded by myself
Here, locked up in my house Nothing I care for I no longer need someone Won't get out anymore,
I get cold water baths every day I cut my arms with razor blades, I cut my arms with razor blades.
I knock myself down on the floor of my room And I see my body rotting and doomed And I see my body rotting and doomed
I'm independent now, Don't need anyone around, I'm selfsufficient finally.
