Corona virus video collection

Since the spread of the so called Corona virus and the resulting Covid 19 sickness from China around the world a new musical sub genre has emerged and spread via social media and online hosts. I have tried to collect here some of the (in my view) best  examples and I guess this genre will be around for  a while.
It started with the parody of well known songs from the history of Pop music, but longer into quarantine more orginal songs started to appear.

But before we start don't forget: Stay at Home, Wash your Hands and Stay Safe and don't forget to clean your phone screen / keyboard regularly!

And if you had enough of singing "Happy Birthday" while washing hands here are some 20 second alternatives: 

This was the first song I received in February, which start starts also my round up
Fight Coronavirus Song -Wuhan China
Sound of Silence Parody by Alvin Oon

Tom Jones Parody Corona Virus


Some prominent singers adapted their own songs:

Even Ralph McTell has updated his hit "Streets of London" for the coronavirus era: Here

Kaiser chiefs - Oh My God

Of course the Fab 4  song catalague is a popular target for parody:



Yesterday (Lockdown Acapella Version) by The Kiffness

Here Comes The Sun - Camden Voices (self-isolation/virtual choir cover)

Solo Beatles are in demand too:

Imagine (there’s no bog roll)


Can't Get No (Sanitiser) - A Covid-19 Parody [Family]

Some Bee Gees classics 

were also used:


 ABBA as well


Queen songs 

(especially Bohemian Rapsody)  are a very popular choice:

Coronavirus Rhapsody

Here they managed to include Donald Trump in the video:

So how long will this be going on?


I hope you enjoyed my collection of Corona Virus v/ Covid-19 Videos, but please don' t forget to support all this creative people out there in difficult times like this! A lot of performers are running out of dosh, cash, money, as they can't perform live! Most of the the artists have donation links on their YouTube channels and website or just support them through legally downloading & buying their content, merch & recordings!

As usual I am looking forward to any suggestions and feedback!
