The song that I feel represents my Covid "stay home" experience is "The Climb" by Miley Cyrus. This song describes how life can be hard and overwhelming and you will face obstacles, but you have to hold your faith to overcome these problems and achieve your goal. In this case, I have to hold hope throughout staying at home and think about if I do stay at home then I will eventually reach my goal of being able to socialize. Staying at home is just a small obstacle that will eventually come to an end, we just have to hold out hope for it.
The song I think represents the Covid-19 at home experience is 2Scratch’s song Tuyo. Experience wise having to stay at home is not the best thing to happen for people that like to go out, go to parties, or hang out with their friends; but it is pretty relaxing.So far, being at home for me has been very relaxing and it has really lowered my stress even though I still have to work. Tuyo reflects a very calming feeling with its melody, which is a hispanic kind of melody that makes you want to sway or dance to it. It captures a very subtle and very easy mood like being on a vacation in Mexico.
The song I chose was "Legends" by Juice WRLD. This song doesn't necessarily represent the 'stay at home' experience, but it does have some lyrics that could relate to this pandemic. The song states, "Ain't nothing like the feeling of uncertainty the eeriness of silence. This time, it was so unexpected." The statement of "feeling of uncertainty", "eeriness of silence", and "so unexpected" can all directly relate to my pandemic experience. RIP Juice WRLD
I chose Memories by Maroon 5. The reason I chose this song is because even though the time that we are living in is the hardest thing that we have had to go through, I keep thinking about how much I'm going to miss Reitz and all the friends. From the song "memories bring back you" is the most imprortant part because every little thing that i see brings bakc joyful moments from Reitz.
The song "Come Hang Out" by AJR reminds me of the COVID "stay home" experience. This reminds me because the song talks about a man who is so worried about achieving in his singing career that he is missing out on the best years of his life. His friends keep asking him to "come hang out" and he always says he can't. For me I feel his friends reflect my desire to go out; while his drive to succeed in his career represents “stay at home order”. As I listen to this song, I am reminded of the "stay home" order because before the order was in place I was constantly going out and trying to make the most memories I could in my senior year, now I am stuck at home every day. As a senior, I feel robbed of what is supposed to be one of the best years of your life. In the song, he also mentions he missed his prom, this line is all too real for our generation due to many having looked forward to our senior prom only to be told we cannot have one.
I pick the song Get Off My Cloud by The Rolling Stones. There is a lyric that says "I was sick and tires, fed up with this and decided to take a drive downtown, It was so very quiet and peaceful There was nobody, not a soul around" and I feel this can represent a lot of peoples quarantine. As some would go for a drive in their car just to get out of the house and no see any please that's very busy.
See Lance Bruk’s first blog...
The song that I feel represents my COVID break is Crash and Burn by Thomas Rhett. The lyrics that make me feel this way are, " So I guess its over" meaning our high school years." I guess I've turned myself into a solitary man Aint like I'm the only one that's in the shoes That I am." Meaning that everyone is solitary or cut off from what they are used to doing. Lastly, "A slamming door and a lesson learned" I have learned that I cant take everything for granted since COVID "slammed the door" in my face.
The song that I feel represents the COVID pandemic would Company by Don Toliver, or a remix of Cardigan called Cardigan but it's chill . The beat of both songs is very soothing and relaxing which can represent the theme of the break as it could be relaxing to be alone, but the lyrics also represent feelings toward missing friends and companions. In the song "Company" Don says "I miss having your company" which this break has really taken a toll on everyone not being able to hang out with friends or family. In the song "Cardigan" he also says "Don't stick around you should save yourself, but you can hit my phone if you need some help." To me this verse means that although people have to stay home and essentially "save themselves", isolation can become lonely and people can get trapped in their own minds, so it is important to stay in touch with everyone and reach out.
The song I think represents the Covid-19 at home experience would have to be the song 'Six Feet Apart' by Alec Benjamin. In this sweet little song he describes how a lot of us are feeling not being able to see our loved ones or having to talk to neighbors and friends from across the street. He says "I'm relatively close to breaking down because right now, I feel so alone", this is how I know a lot of student are feeling not being able to meet with their friend groups or girlfriends/boyfriends. He then goes on to say "I miss you most at six feet apart when your right outside my window but cant ride inside my car..it feels like miles, six feet apart". Not being able to hug those we love to comfort ourselves and others its hard. Yes this song was released a week ago and literally is talking about being quarantine.
A song I think relates to COVID is "It's The End Of The World As We Know It" by REM. Other than the obvious title relation, some lyrics really connect to how people are feeling and dealing with this pandemic. The lines, "world serves its own needs, don't mis-serve your own needs..." and "save yourself, serve yourself, world serves its own needs, listen to your heart bleed..." relates to everyone going out and overly stocking up on necessities like toilet paper and paper towels. No one's thinking about each other and how everyone else needs these items too. The lyrics, "Offer me solutions, offer me alternatives and I decline..." connects to the people not following the guidelines our government has given us, like social disancing, hand washing, and just staying home.
These are great so far everybody!
The song that best represents stay at home is "At The House" by Blake Shelton. This song has many lyrics that suggest that staying at home is not that bad and that you can have just have as much fun doing things in your own home as you would going somewhere. It describes what you can do as long as you are with the right people. This song also reminds me of all the fun and relaxing things you can do just by being home.
The song that I choose that represents my COVID-19 break is "The Sound of Silence". Starting off with the lyric hello darkness my old friend represents how all of us are used to being at home alone, but now it's more of something we are forced to say hello to again. Other lyrics talking about narrow streets give an image of bare streets from everyone having to stay home. The overall song gives of a vibe of seclusion but not being truly alone as ten thousand others are going through the same thing. We all feel loneliness from being unable to go outside, thought not truly as we are all united from this shared experience.
That was a unique pick. And... Did you really stay up until 4 a.m.?
I thing the song "I hate everything about you" represents covid-19 because nobody likes it. The song says "Every feeling that I get" really shows the range of feelings and emotions this virus is giving everyone. "You love everything about me" The virus's job is to infect us and everything it can so in a way it loves everything about us.
The song I chose to represent COVID-19 would have to be "The Sound of Silence" by Simon & Garfunkel. The overall vibe of the song is very dark and depressing which correlates to COVID-19. Since the virus started, everything I was looking forward too this year has been canceled. Overall, the song represents a sad vibe that I would feel translates to something bad happening.
The song that represents my Coronacation so far is "Don't Start Now" by Dua Lipa. I choose this song because it is catchy and I like the beat of it. A lyric in this song that rings very true to Covid-19 so far is "Though it took some time to survive you, I'm better on the other side". This lyric translates well to our quarantine. The Corona Virus is going to take some time for the U.S. to move past, but it is going to be worth it in the end.
One song that I chose for this time is "The Four Horsemen" by Metallica. This song is about the four horsemen from the bible and also the apocalypse itself which is what people thought this would be in the beginning.
The song that I would choose for this time would have to be is "Six Feet Apart" by Luke Combs. In this song he a stating what he misses, "I miss my mom, I miss my dad, I miss the road, I miss my band." We can all translate this to the time that is going on right now on how we can't get out of the house to see the people that we love.
The song I think encapsulates the covid stay-cation is "One is the Loneliest Number" by Three Dog Night. I think that this song represents this pandemic because it talks about the number one being the loneliest, and most students are by themselves most of the time. It also says "No is the saddest experience you'll ever know" and all of the seniors have just heard a big "No" on having a fun end to their time in high school.
The song that I feel represents the C9vid stay at home time is Find ME by Aviators, especially the part about
"Far away now
Trapped at the start of all we know
Traces of doubt
Keep on obscuring my way out
Lost in days gone
Living in a memory turned wrong" in reference to how we were basically denied a fun end to the year, all of us being separated, and then being also confused by the work given us?
David Bowie "Five Years" is the song I choose because it describes the panic that sweeps the world upon the imminence of its demise, which sounds like whats happening today. Not only that but the title seems appropriate, mainly because it has felt like it's been five years since we've seen each other.
I chose the song "Boredom" by Tyler, The Creator. The lyrics of the song describe Tyler as being just incredibly bored. It features lyrics such as "I've been in this room so long my eyeballs are turning to dry wall" and "Cause boredom got a new best friend, boredom got a new best friend" This song really represents how I have felt recently.
I’m really digging this blog you guys!
The song I feel captures the vibe of this pandemic is "The Great Indoors" by John Mayer. The song describes the joy of staying home which we are all doing right now but it hints at a longing to go out by the end. Either that or "Don't Stand So Close to Me" by The Police for obvious reasons.
The song that I feel represents COVID-19 is "Brand New" by Ben Rector. This song is about new and different feelings being experienced. This quarantine life-style is definitely very new and different for everyone. It is also a time to maybe learn something new or make new and better habits.
A great song to listen to during quarantine would be "Stressed Out" by Twenty One Pilots. The song touches on themes such as past regrets and nostalgia, which I'm sure are present in most of our thoughts these days - there is so much that didn't get done before quarantine started, and we, especially in the case of 2020 seniors, are regretful that we didn't get to participate in any of the fun that the end of the year brings; also, I'm sure a lot of us are missing friends and teachers and feeling nostalgic about favorite classroom moments. And of course, post-quarantine life does have most of us pretty stressed out, so it's fitting.
I chose the song Smells Like Teen Spirit by Nirvana. This song relates to the quarantine experience because, if you're like me, it's a very dazed, confusing time. So, you're just kind of "going with the flow" trying to live your best life, but 6 feet apart.
Im not exactly sure what the title of the song is, and this may be stupid, but there’s this song on tiktok that says, “Bored in the house and I’m in the house bored.” That’s pretty much how my life has been since the stay at home order.
The song Don't You by Simple Minds represents how life is with the virus as it tells our friends and our loved ones to not forget about each other when we can't see them.
The song that describes COVID-19 for me would have to me "Don't stand so close to me"- by Police. The Evansville police department even made a video using this song making an public announcement about the virus. The quarantine lifestyle for me has become even more busy because I work with the healthcare system , this sound indicates how standing close to people can infect them and you need to take extra precautions especially with elderly people.
Their is a song on YouTube, the name is something like stay home. Not really sure if that's the name or not but as the song goes on it brings up the importance of staying at home during Covib 19. The writer had written it for that very perpese
the song that reminds me the most of whats going on right now is changes by 2pac. his lyrics "I'd love to go back to when we played as kids but things changed, and that's the way it is". Things in society have changed so fast we went from a 2 week vacation from school to the rest of the year being out. The cdc is also recommending a new norm of social distancing and masks even after this blows over.
A song for me that would really describe Corona and the quarantine is All By Myself by Eric Carmen. This helps relate the lack of human contact and the feeling of being alone.
The song that represents this time for me is "fight song" because even through the uncertainty we can all fight together to prevent the spread of the virus. As the song says, "starting right now ill be strong," proving that despite the struggles we can overcome them by staying strong.
I chose the song "The Plague" by The Mountain Goats. IT'S A WEIRD SONG. The song talks about a plague coming over with its anger, but the line that sticks out most is, “And all our great schemes and plans will slip like fishes from our hands.” I chose the song because for everyone, and especially seniors, this virus took away a lot of what we had planned coming up.
The song that reminds me about covid and staying home is "Six Feet Apart by Luke Combs." One of the lryics is "There will be light after dark when we aren't six feet apart." This shows that after all this eventually goes over, things will get better and we can be back with out friends and family again.
The first song to remind me of this pandemic is Avicii - Wake Me Up
Our current situation seems surreal and it's hard to believe our reality is writing blogs on the internet rather than getting up and going to our 4 classes a day. We don't have senior prom and we won't have a ceremony on time... It's almost like a nightmare and that is why the hit song "Wake Me Up" by Avicii reminds me so much of this.
A song that has encouraged me in this time is "I am not Alone" by Kari Jobe. It talks about how no matter what battles we are going through, we are not alone and God is always with us. I've been working full time in the nursing home and so many of my residents are becoming depressed and very sick. They don't get any visitors and most are staying in their rooms all day in bed. Their muscles are deteriorating and we've had a really hard time keeping them happy and healthy. I've sang this song many times to my residents to put a smile on their face or to comfort them as they were passing. This song inspires me to keep going and not to give up.
Wow! I’m so glad they gave someone compassionate like you. Stay strong!
A song I feel kind of helps represent everything going on with the virus is "Trust In You" by Lauren Daigle. The song doesn't say anything about staying home or keeping your distance but it is about trusting God despite what might be going on and I feel like it goes well with this time because, everyone is freaking out what might happen. One of the lines in the song is, "No matter what I face You're by my side" and it goes well with this time because, he is always going to be there even if people tend to forget that.
The song, "Island" by FGL reminds me of the stay-home-initiative. It makes me think of Covid-19 because of the lyrics, "were trapped here in an island... it's just the two of us..." That makes me think of my phone and I sitting in my house, trapped and waiting.
A song I think relates to COVID-19 is "Middle Of A Memory" by Cole Swindle because in a few years we're going to look back on this time as a memory and remember how we spent our time. The lyrics " We're in the middle of a memory" explains how we can feel about this pandemic.
I think that the song "The Wonder Years" by Jon Bellion really represents my Covid-19 stay home experience. This song talks about being a kid and how easy things used to be, before we really learned about the world. The lyrics that really stick to me about our current situation are "Economy is down too, They're lyin' on the d*mn news, People murderin' for d*amn shoes, And my niece is blowin' bubbles in the yard." The reason these lyrics stick with me is because even though all these awful things are going on around us, his niece is unaware and innocent, "blowing bubbles in the yard" and having a good time. I think during this time we've all had a thought about going back to the time when "we were just kids" and everything was simple. (This song is explicit)
The song that I think represents Covid-19 the most is "My Generation" by the Who. The title of the song and the main chorus "talkin' bout' my generation" is something that I felt represents my Senior class and my age group. The fact that we don't get to go outside, we don't get to go to school. This is the "uphill walk in the snow to school" that our grandparents told us about and we will use on our children or grand children one day. When our children complain about being bored or having nothing to do we will use the phrase "during my generation we were stuck in the house for months." I think the songs chorus accuratley represents the way we will feel when this is over and we get to tell younger generations about it.
The song I choose was Keep your head by Andy Grammer. As these times are tough since we are all quartined this song is just a good reminder that we all need to keep our heads up so we can make it through this pandemic.
The song Memories by Maroon Five captures the tone during the stay at home order for the Class of 2020. One class after another reminisce over the last three months of their high school experience, but the Class of 2020 is different in that spring sports were canceled, Senior Scholarship Night will not be happening, Class Day is not happening, and Prom and Graduation are still questionable to occur in the summer. Despite all of these events, the Class of 2020 is still able to reminisce over the great 12 years of school thus far, and all of the closures make it harder to move on past high school.
In the song First Day Out, he repeats many times that people pray on his downfall. I feel this represents this covid "stay at home experience" because I cant go to the gym and sets me behind other football player that might have a gym at home.
The song that I relate to the most in this is Psycho! by MASN and Trippie Redd because I feel like if I spend one more minute in my room playing video games I'm going to go psycho.
A song that relates to COVID-19 is Bored In The House by Tyga. The name and even lyrics that go "I'm bored in a house and I'm in a house bored" truly reflect how the pandemic is making everyone stay at home and how boring it actually is.
The song Die for You by The Weeknd is the song I feel correlated with the stay at home order perfectly. In the song he says things like "It's hard for me to communicate the thoughts that I hold" which is relatable to how a lot of people are feeling. Then the most relatable lyric happens in the middle of the song when he says "Even though we're going through it and it makes you feel alone just know that I would die for you" and "The distance and the time between us it'll never change my mind because baby I would die for you" This is most relatable piece of the song because it coincidences with the struggle we are going through now and how even though we're in tough times it will not change our bonds as a community, family or neighbor.
The song that I think best represents my quarantine experience is It's the end of the world by R.E.M.. I say this because my home has become apocalyptic in nature with us arguing over the most stupid things like who ate the last oreo. It wasn't like that as bad before quarantine. All I can say is that I hope they don't find out it was me or else it is going to become a warzone in my home.
I'm telling Nick.... (lol).
The song I feel best represents the Coronavirus epidemic is “Spreadin’(Coronavirus)’ by Psychs. The British rapper explains many of the current struggles in detail. People can relate to his lyrics because getting used to social distancing and the virus is making people uncomfortable. Some quotes from his song that are too relatable are “Wash your hands, don’t touch me please”, and “Oh my god 2020, what a start to the year we’ve had. Psychs was able to rap hard and create a video while rapping with a mask on. “Spreadin’(Coronavirus)” will be a throwback to the days when the world was going through a major crisis.
The song "Don't stand so close to me" by The Police could not be a better fit. The lyrics perfectly reflect whats going through my head when I walk into a public space.
If I where to choose a song to represent the COVID-19 stay at home it would be "Feeling Whitney" by Post Malone, its an overall sad song and this whole situation is very sad about loosing m senior year, In the song he says "I can't even leave my bedroom" which is very relatable because we can't leave our homes during all of this.
The song “I’ll always remember you” by Hannah Montana captures the vibe during this lock down order for our class. Me and my friends listen to this song all the time because we are so sad our senior year had such a hard ending. The song says “so thankful for the moment, so glad I got to know you” and “another chapter in the books”. This song is so relatable because despite all of the cancellations this year, class of 2020 can think back to the great four years we have had on Reitz hill and get closure to be ready for our chapter.
The song that I feel best represents the COVID-19 stay at home order energy is prom dress by mxmtoon. The song is about a teenager on her prom night who feels like she didn't achieve everything that she wanted to during her 4 years of high school. This song takes on a duality in the lyrics thought and is a reminder of the things that seniors are missing out on this year including , but not limited to, their senior prom.
I feel like the song that represents the COVID-19 stay at home experience would be don't you forget about me by Simple Minds. I think that this relates to the stay at home experience because it tore the seniors away from each other and we really didn't get a proper good bye. So I think that some of us are afraid of our friends forgetting us.
I think a song that accurately represents the COVID-19 "stay at home" experience is NASA by Ariana Grande. The whole song is about needing space away from other people.The lyrics "I'd rather be alone tonight, you can say 'I love you' through the phone tonight" emphasize the importance of social distancing.
A song that represents COVID-19 stay at home would be " Hug All Ur Friends" by Cavetown. IN the song he talks about being alone and remembering what its like to be arounf the people he loves and how time doesn't feel real. "Remember when we felt like animations" "remembering the time you saw them on a Sunday"
I feel that "It's The End Of The World As We Know It" by R.E.M. really captures the crazy reaction that the world is having to this pandemic. Everyone is freaking out and scrambling to buy more supplies than they need. The very fast and frantic speed of this song seems to match everyone's behavior during this crazy time.
I choose the song "Six Feet Apart" by Luke Combs. I pick this song because he is talking about how he misses everything and right now a lot of people are missing people and things because of quarantine.
One the songs that represent my quarantine life, and what I am also listening to as I write this, is The Boxer by Simon and Garfunkel. This represents me during quarantine because it sings about leaving my home for something else, my job, and being a "poor boy" because we get the lunches and breakfasts provided by tekopple school instead of making our own food
A song that reminds me of the COVID-19 stay at home order would have to be Ready for the times to get better by Cody jinks. I chose this song because it describes how Im feeling about this whole pandemic. I am just ready for things to go back to normal.
The song that describes my quarantine is The World is Upside Down from Finding Neverland the Musical. This was my ice theatre's program before the season was cancelled due to COVID-19. The song starts off with apologizing for the craziness since the idea is just forming in his head for the musical and it reminds me of how teachers must feel during this pandemic. However, with the world literally turned upside down, I think it is fairly accurate depiction of how everyone is feeling right now. The line most relative to this quarantine is, "do you have experience being lost? We're experiencing it now!"
I pick the song "The Sound of Silence" because every time I hear that sound it just gives me a weird kinda depressing vibe and that is how quarantine makes me feel. In the lyrics it talks about being alone in silence and that is how quarantine feels.
A song that reminds me of and gives me that stay "stay home" vibe is "Promises" by Jhene Aiko. The song talks about how she can't see someone that she loves, so she's telling this figure in her lyrics that if "anything should happen" everything's going to be "alright". Lines that specifically remind me of quarantine are "I've been sleeping past day light," "I really do be missing you," and "everything is alright." The sleeping past day light is very true because I literally can't fall asleep until after seven am therefor I sleep very late in the day. I also miss a lot of my friends that I can't see that I used to see everyday at school. But, once all of this blows over staying home would have been worth it so everything turns out alright at the end.
The song I think represents quarantine would have to be the song 'Six Feet Apart' by Alec Benjamin. In this song he describes how a lot of us are feeling not being able to see our loved ones or friends. He says "I'm relatively close to breaking down because right now, I feel so alone", He then goes on to say "I miss you most at six feet apart when your right outside my window but cant ride inside my car..it feels like miles, six feet apart". Not being able to hug those we love to comfort ourselves and others is hard.
A song that inspires me is my generation because our generation is living through history with the coronavirus.
The song I pick to best represent quarantine is "Social Distancing" by Lil Baby. I think there are many lyrics in this song that capture what quarantine is like for me. Lil Baby says "I'm social distancing
man, these ***** can't touch me, I can't get sick." I can relate to this because I have been trying my best to practice social distancing so I don't get sick. Another lyric I relate to is "let's talk about money, I swear I been savin' up." This represents quarantine for me because I have been working a lot and saving up my money. The last lyric I chose to share is, "I told her to fly and she scared of the virus I sent her a private to get here." Maybe not the private jet part, but I think we can all relate to being scared of the virus.
The song I believe that bet represents the Covid-19 outbreak the most is "6 ft. Away" by The Focus & Blur. The song for the most part captures what a lot of students are doing/feeling. They talk about their new Netflix addiction and expresses a sense of desperation. (song is only on Spotify)
A song I feel represents the COVID-19 outbreak is "Living in a ghost town" by the rolling stones. Why I feel this song represents the pandemic is they say "So much time to lose just starin" at my phone" and that is all I feel like myself and everybody else is doing.
Okay my favorite quarantine song would probably have to be "Hey there Delilah". I honestly think this best fit with the social distancing. There is a set of lyrics that goes, "Hey there Delilah don't you worry about the distance I'm right here if you are lonely so give this song another listen" which it made me think of how everyone is staying away from everyone but if they really do need help someone will go and help them still.
The song I think that best represents quarantine is Survivor's "Eye of the Tiger". I think this best fits quarantine because of the release of Joe Exotic's "Tiger King" and the popularity of it during the stay at home order. "It's the thrill of the fight, rising up the challenge of our rivals" Also represents our nation's fight against COVID and the challenges it has brought up upon everyone.
"Bored in the house"-Tyga Will be my song because I'm extremely bored and the songs hook is "Bored in the house, and I'm in the house bored" The song is about quarantining, boredom, and money.
The song I think reflects well on my COVID-19 experience is "Takin care of buisness" by Bacham Turner. I have been working since this has taken over the country and I continuously hit overtime every week.
