Top 5 songs for your Lockdown Playlist

Staying at home is a challenge. When stuck at home, we often find ourselves reaching for our television remotes, only to be bombarded with anxiety provoking news. Then we seek refuge by scrolling through our social media feed; this has the potential to be even more damaging. Art is the best way to distract yourself in times of distress. If you’re looking to fuel your stay at home experience, look no further. I’ve compiled a lockdown playlist to boost your coronacation to the next level. Whether you’re spending your time in solitude or with your family, a little music is always beneficial.

It’s Not Living (If It’s Not With You) by The 1975

The 1975’s frontman, Matty Healy, candidly confirmed that this song is a reference to his drug addiction. Sporting dark lyrics and an upbeat tempo, this song has the ability to change shape each time I listen to it; true to The 1975 form. Every line of this song is embedded with emotion and sentimentality.

Hard Times by Paramore

Who remembers this song before Tik Tok came along? Hard Times carries a large amount of significance within this time of uncertainty and difficulty. As important as the message of this song is, it’s feel good vibes still provide comfort.

7 by Catfish and the Bottlemen

Van McCann, lead singer of Catfish and the Bottlemen, titled this song 7, because he wrote it when he was seven hours behind the time difference of the person who he wrote it about. The beauty of this song is that I can listen to it on repeat for hours and fall in love with it more and more each time. 7 is a playlist essential for me.

Joy by Bastille

A real life representation of my feelings towards Bastille in one song. Feeling down? Don’t worry, Bastille’s got you covered. All you have to do is light up your screen with this song.
Trying by Cavetown

Cavetown is not tolerating a boring quarantine. The original version of this song was made in January of 2015 and was titled I Promise I’m Trying. This is a new version and was released on March 27 2020. It’s impossible not to get lost within this song.
