Corona Queen

A feverish playlist for those who are recovering from anything.

If you know me but at all, then you know I make a playlist for every major and minor event in my life (listen here in iTunes or Spotify). So, of course I made one for coming down with the coronavirus. At times I was so agitated and sick that I just wanted to listen to something to take me to another place, with some old favorites sprinkled in for comfort. Fair warning: you will never escape my Emo tendencies on one of my playlists.

I’m much better now, but I’m finding that I still really enjoy this collection, so I decided to post it for you guys. I think it could be a nice break from the isolating monotony and might give you a fun distraction today. So have a listen and enjoy and wash your hands and be well.
