A perfect summer day is when the sun is shining, the breeze is blowing, the birds are singing, and the lawn mower is broken. - James Dent

Dear 100 Hour Bard,

Do you have a song to describe Quarantine?

Dear GG,

I've Got...Too Much Time On My Hands *clap clap* by Styx. 

Cheers,

Dear friend,

Level of Concern, of course. Especially the whole "panic on the brain" bit.

Dear good game,

"Supalonely" by BENEE. It's not my usual genre (as my other music-related answers should amply demonstrate), but my roommate found it and we've both come to like it quite a bit.

There's also a clean version on Spotify, which I think sounds better lyrically anyway.

Genuinely,

Dear good game,

555 by Jimmy Eat World, from last year’s aptly titled album Surviving.

I keep my focus on the simple things
Try to find some peace along the way
Wish I knew how long I'm supposed to wait
Holding on but just barely

Got the feeling I've been talking to a dead, dead line
There's always a reason to let it change
Is there anyone there listening while you cry, cry, cry
There's always a reason for the pain

I'm doing the things I've been told every day, every day, every day
Then why does it feel like I'm moving in place, in place, in place

Never had anything to prove
But never was anyone like you
All you fought through, all you had to face
Made you stronger, unafraid

Got the feeling I've been talking to a dead, dead line
There's always a reason to let it change
Is there anyone there listening while you cry, cry, cry
There's always a reason for the pain

I'm doing the things I've been told every day, every day, every day
Then why does it feel like I'm moving in place, in place, in place
I gotta believe that you're there when I say, when I say, when I say
Cause if you're not real I'm losing my head, in my head, in my head

Got the feeling I've been talking to a dead, dead line
There's always a reason to let it change
Is there anyone there listening while you cry, cry, cry
There's always a reason for the pain

I'm doing the things I've been told every day, every day, every day
Then why does it feel like I'm moving in place, in place, in place
I gotta believe that you're there when I say, when I say, when I say
Cause if you're not real I'm losing my head, in my head, in my head

I keep my focus on the simple things
Try to find some peace along the way

Dear GG-

I have (somewhat embarrassingly) been listening to Dashboard Confessional again. Not because of how emo I'm feeling, but because the line "This is about as social as I get now" (from "Saints and Sailors") popped into my head after two months of not leaving the house. I pulled up the song, then the album, then the next album, then the songs were stuck in my head, so I listened again...

Dear GG ~

This meme went around at the beginning of the Golden Age of memes, when Utah was still in the Red, and my answer was strangely appropriate: "Don't Go Chasing Waterfalls." (No really, just stay home!)

Dear GG,

I keep thinking of several lines from Frozen ("For the First Time in Forever Reprise")

You mean well, but leave me be
Yes, I'm alone, but I'm alone and free
Just stay away and you'll be safe from me

-Kirito

Dear GG,

For songs, the other answers must suffice
While I indulge in plagiarism's vice:

Coroneo, coroneo, where art thou corononeo?
I pray thee keep thee far away!
Or if thou wilt not, I'll take those I love
And the entire house of Capulet
Shall quarantine ourselves from our enemy:
E'en thou, o Romeo of Montague.
What’s Montague? 'Tis those who put
Their immune systems within six feet
Of each other. The orient I will not blame.
What do I blame? Our foes are those
Who readied not masks or tests mete,
Though warned they were. Of this I am appalled.
Though isolated, Romeo, I propose,
To Zoom with you, though tis not the same
As eloping. Remember—sanitize
All of thyself. The mask's the thing
Wherein we'll not catch the virus of COVID-19.
 
-Love, 100 Hour Bard
