Info on COVID-19

Here are some resources to learn more about the coronavirus without having to watch the news. Most of all, use common sense. The virus spreads quickly as this is new to everyone's immune system.

Parodies During COVID-19

Song parodies have long been part of the music industry. Most are fun and lighthearted. When I was a teenager, Weird Al Yankovic was the first parody songwriter to catch my attention. He's still going strong today. One of his latest parodies, "The Hamilton Polka," proves how talented he is. (I'd also recommend the country parody singer Cletus T. Judd).

In 2020, people had a lot of time on their hands (unfortunately). To stay sane, many people came out with their own song parodies. The songs on this list are a little different, because they have messages about being safe during a virus. (This sure is a strange time for parody songs!) But, I'm sure there will be a shift once we reach peak coronavirus parody. Without further ado, here are my favorites.
