Just doing our part

One of the cheapest and easiest ways to protect yourself from the coronavirus is to wash your hands with soap, do it often, and do it thoroughly. Thoroughly means rubbing every nook and cranny of your hands for at least 20 seconds. A good way to measure the time is to sing a verse of your favourite song. Not necessarily out loud.

Or head to Wash Your Lyrics and create your own. You are welcome.

Caveat: the site is pretty busy at the moment (as one can imagine), so it may take a few tries to get it working.

    Awesome, I’ve been doing this for a long time now, haha.

    Like, when I have to wait for someone/something for 15 mins and I want to calculate how much would it take, I start humming (in my head) Anyone’s Dayghter (3 mins) and Anya (12 mins) from Stuttgart 1993.

    and it works perfectly, always on time.

    You only have to thoroughly follow the solos note-by-note and not skip them. Vocals are easiest.

    Seriously, be extra careful in you personal habits & practice social distancing for everyone’s sake.

    Really? In These times? Is this sarcasm, ironic or simply dump?

    Keep calm and have a nice Day!

    Just washed my hands singing Bananas. And that is because everyone on the planet have gone bananas!!!!

    The media remains warped in every way, shape, and form. Fear Factor times thousands.

    Everyone CALM DOWN! Social distance, good hygiene with the soap stuff, and just a tad of good ole COMMON SENSE!

    Mankind. The most upside down species on this earth.

    Agree with Ted @ 11- the human species, the worst of all living organisms. If you want something destroyed, let a human near it. In regards to the ‘herd’ mentality, well common sense surely, but then again, it comes back to the species. All good though, no panic this end of town although that is easy to say, as we are more isolated here in Tasmania. There are plenty of dooms day songs out there folks, should we start a list, no better not. Take care one & all. Cheers.

    In the Netherlands newspaper Het Parool has gathered a list of great live albums to listen to during CORONA

    Deep Purple and Made in Japan are on number 2.

    Is het concert waar u al tijden naar uitkeek voor onbepaalde tijd uitgesteld? Het Parool biedt troost met een selectie van de mooiste live-albums o…
