As the world comes to a pause, music continues to be one of the few constants keeping many of us moving, despite how awkward that may look! Like almost everyone, the FischTank team is feeling the wrath of the pandemic with the rest of the world, so we thought, what better way to help the time go by than a quarantine playlist full of our favorite music? 

Whether it’s a tune that takes us back to pre-pandemic times when we could sing along at a concert, or a little ditty that makes you feel like you’re not sitting in your bedroom-office, these songs have helped us drown out the COVID-19 noise. 

Here are the FischTank’s team’s favorite quarantine jams:

Song: Stay Forever – Ehrling Ft. Yohanna Seifu

“Summer is my favorite time of year, and this song makes me feel like I’m in my car, driving down to the beach with my windows open!” – Alexis Winkler 

Song: Mexico – James Taylor

“I’m a big fan of James Taylor and this song makes me feel relaxed, on a beach, with a drink in my hand!” – Carly Ross

Song: Reptilia – The Strokes

“This song has been a favorite of mine for years. It’s got a great high energy feel and I always love listening to it.” – Emma Parrott

Song: Atlantic City – The Band

“This song reminds me of being younger, both as a teenager when I lived in the Philadelphia area, and then my early years in New Jersey out of college. I miss throwing everything into the car and taking off for AC, carefree.” – Eric Fischgrund

Song: The Chain – Fleetwood Mac performed live at The Forum in Los Angeles, CA – October 22, 1982 

“Staying on brand with my pick, as I’m a BIG Fleetwood Mac fan. This is no doubt one of their best tracks and, in quarantine, I’ve been digging into live albums from FM and other favorite artists of mine — this particular version is a stand-out. And yes, it’s seven minutes long. Trust me, it’s worth it.” – Erin Hadden

Song: Don’t Stop Believing – Journey

“This is my dad’s favorite song to sing along to while we are locked in quarantine, but also an uplifting song about a city boy who was born and raised in South Detroit.” – Jacob Strom

Song: Be a Light – Thomas Rhett

“This is an uplifting country song from Thomas Rhett and a few other popular country singers. It shows how you should be the best person you could be and see things in a positive light, despite the difficult time we are in.” – Jess Reiner

Song: Home – Vanessa Carlton 

“This song holds a special place in my heart as it is my favorite non-classical song to play on the piano. It’s calming, the lyrics and music are beautiful and most importantly, it’s a reminder that no matter where you are in the world, when you’re with the people you love (whether you’re quarantined together or connecting over a zoom chat) you’re home.” – Kate Caruso-Sharpe

Song: Lost in the Supermarket – the Clash

“Even before the pandemic, this song got stuck in my head almost every time I went to a supermarket. Now, it can be hard to find everything you need at the supermarket, so “I’m all lost in the supermarket, I can no longer shop happily,” hits home.” – Kyle Evans

Song: Get Out of Denver – Bob Seger

“Love Bob Seger, love the dueling guitar/organ solo, and the lyrics (while not being chased by police) make me look forward to when I can get in my car and drive again.” – Matt Bretzius

Song: Three Little Birds – Bob Marley

“It is a feel good song, in a time where we need some positivity and happiness. We turn to Robert Marley to tell us that “every little thing is going to be alright” and how we can wake up each day and all “smile with the rising sun.” – Mike Canova

Song: Save Your Tears – the Weeknd

“Been listening a ton recently – sad/happy.” – Rebecca Revel

Song: Crooked Piece of Time – John Prine

“The title says it all. An upbeat song from a legendary songwriter to get us through this crooked piece of time. Long live John Prine!” – Rob Kreis 

Song: Born to Run – Bruce Springsteen

“As the pivotal song in Springsteen’s career, launching him to stardom, Born to Run is the song that sparked my interest in the Boss.” – Russ Pagano

Song: Cabin By the Sea – The Dirty Heads

“Feel good, beachy song that reminds me of better days ahead. ” – Samantha Breccia

Song: Baby Shark

“This song is incredibly effective at keeping babies distracted while you try to get literally anything done in life, thus it has been a staple in my life for the last 18 months.” – Spencer Herrmann
