While cold and flu season is coming to an end, the threat of coronavirus (COVID-19) is becoming a real fear around our country. Memes galore exist (surely you've seen the ones going around about cheap flights), but it is important for young adults to learn best practices and tips as a means to prevent the spread of diseases and viruses.
Though healthy young adults seemingly do not have an overwhelming cause for concern, it is important for us to be as hygienic as possible to prevent spreading an illness to someone statistically more susceptible. One of the biggest pieces of advice floating around is to wash hands often and thoroughly; So, here is a short list of songs to sing while scrubbing those hands:
"Africa" by Toto
Chorus lyrics: "It's gonna take a lot to drag me away from you / There's nothing that a hundred men or more could ever do / I bless the rains down in Africa / Gonna take some time to do the things we never had"
"No Scrubs" by TLC
Chorus lyrics: "No, I don't want no scrubs / a scrub is a guy that can't get no love from me / hangin/ out the passenger side of his best friend's ride / trying to holla at me / I don't want no scrubs / a scrub is a guy that can't get no love from me / hangin' out the passenger side of his best friend's ride / trying to holla at me"
"Escape (The Pina Colada Song)" by Rupert Holmes
Chorus lyrics: "If you like Pina Coladas, and getting caught in the rain / If you're not into yoga, if you have half a brain / If you like making love at midnight, in the dunes of the cape / I'm the love that you've looked for, write to me, and escape"
"...Baby One More Time" by Britney Spears
Chorus lyrics: "My loneliness is killing me (and I) / I must confess I still believe (still believe) / When I'm not with you / I lose my mind / Give me a sign / Hit me, baby, one more time"
"American Pie" by Don McLean
Chorus lyrics: "Bye, bye Miss American Pie / Drove my Chevy to the levee but the levee was dry / And them good ole boys were drinking whiskey and rye / Singin' this'll be the day that I die / This'll be the day that I die"
Happy washing, and don't forget to get under those nails!
