10 songs that no longer apply to life as we know it, Covid-19 edition

I recently made a list of songs that totally relate to this crazy life we’re all now living, check it out here: 15 “Stay at Home” Songs, Covid-19 Edition

But on the flip side of that, here’s a list of songs that no longer apply to life as we know it. Thanks to radio host Michael DelGiorno for the idea for this one!

Loverboy “Workin’ for the Weekend”
Lyrics: Everybody’s working for the weekend…
[nope, wrong! Everybody’s unemployed *ahem* furloughed]

The Beatles “Come Together” 
Lyrics: Come together right now…
[metaphorically, yes… physically, don’t you dare!]

Kool and the Gang “Celebration” 
Lyrics: It’s time to come together / It’s up to you, what’s your pleasure
[again, let’s not and say we did, mmmmk]

Beastie Boys “Fight for your Right” 
Lyrics: You wake up late for school, man you don’t want to go / You ask you mom, please? but she still says, no!
[remember when everyone laughed at the idea of homeschooling?]

Flo Rida “My House” 
Lyrics: Hear a knock on the door and the night begins / ‘Cause we done this before so you come on in…
[stay home, woman, he isn’t worth spreading the virus!]

Rihanna “Umbrella”
Lyrics: You can stand under my umbrella, ella, ella, eh, eh, eh
[this is clearly against all social distancing recommendations]

Jack Norworth “Take Me Out to the Ball Game”
Lyrics: Take me out to the ball game / Take me out with the crowd.
[remember sports?]

Brooks & Dunn “Hard Workin’ Man”
Lyrics: Come Monday morning I’m the first to arrive / I ain’t nothin’ but business from nine till five…
[sure, the first to arrive in your living room with a laptop]

Willy Nelson “I’ve Loved You All Over the World” 
Lyrics: I’ll always follow my heart / Wherever it takes me…
[actually, no you won’t. Ain’t nobody goin nowhere]

Band of Merrymakers “Gather Round”
Lyrics: So come join the crowd / Gather round, gather round
[if you want to get people killed, then sure, gather round! Hug! High five!]

Thanks for stopping by!
