I hope everyone is staying safe. Comedy shows have been cancelled but it doesn’t mean you can’t laugh while you’re sequestered at home. Here are some songs about toilet paper, Purell (to the tune of “Jolene,” of course) and trying to remember what day it is, all from comedy singers. And of course I included a couple of my tunes.
I’ll start with Lisa Koch, one of the funniest humans on the planet, with her Pandemic Medley:
“I Wanna Know What Day It Is” made me howl with laughter. Scared the neighbors. And yes, we’re all in our houses — that’s how loud I can be.
This parody is by talented duo Emma’s Revolution. There’s some serious stuff here but I loved “From a distance Trump’s still an idiot.”
I wrote this in the early days of social isolation. I commented to someone that I didn’t know why people were rushing to buy toilet paper. I’d go right for the chocolate.
And what time of social isolation would be complete without these songs?
Stay healthy and keep laughing.
