Music 15/04/2020

Dave Grohl has made a pandemic playlist, with 10 tunes "for your every quarintine mood", which includes tracks by The Cars, Madness, the Smashing Pumpkins and more. 

Writing for The Atlantic, Grohl said:

In order to get through this difficult period (and I truly believe that we will get through this, in time), it is important to recognize the many stages of isolation and anxiety, and to pair them with appropriate musical accompaniment.


See Grohls 'Pandemic Playlist' below:

1. The Cars - Let's Go
2. Madness - Our House
3. Ahmad Jamal Quintet - Ahmad's Waltz
4. LCD Soundsystem - Drunk Girls
5. Alice Cooper - School's Out
6. The Art of Noise - Moments in Love
7. The Smashing Pumpkins - Bullet With Butterfly Wings
8. Vince Guaraldi Trio - Linus and Lucy
9. Patsy Cline - Crazy
10. The Beatles - Here Comes the Sun

Grohl even provided a description beside each song, to explain at what stage of quarintine the song would be ideal for.

Grohl reckons Madness' 'Our House' is an ideal track for "bust[ing] out the vacuum and the antibacterial wipes' to, and LCD Soundsytem's 'Drunk Girls' is one to "blow off a little steam" to.
