American singer Chris Mann has been creating entertaining parodies of hit songs during the COVID-19 pandemic.
There’s a variety of music ranging from Pop to R&B. The compositions follow the beat of the original songs smoothly. These songs are catchy and cheer us up, as well as feel nostalgic. It’s a humorous way to look for the best of a complicated situation.
Chris Mann’s voice is incredible. He captures the sentiment many of us feel during the time of isolation/self-quarantine, especially funny songs.
The Touching Tribute to Frontline Workers
The song Thank You, Frontline, is an exception, as it’s an homage to the doctors, nurses, and those work on the frontlines. It was a reference to Alanis Morisette tune called Thank You, India. It has a sweet and appreciative message to the frontline workers (i.e. doctors, nurses, etc.).
*The tune Home is a parody referring to Madonna’s famous 90s hit Vogue. The song reflects the realities many of us face, such as doing meetings virtually (i.e. Zoom) and working remotely. It describes the situation in a humorous way.
*The song Hello is a spoof of Adele’s 2015 single Hello. It describes how a guy is going stir-crazy being in isolation for a while, including shopping online. It also talks about the importance and challenges of a stay-at-home order.
*My Corona is a reference to the 70s hit My Sharona by the band The Knack. The song describes the stress of grocery shopping, notably not finding toilet paper. It includes the importance of taking precautions, such as not touching your face.
*Chris Mann has a recent parody entitled Feelin’ Bored as Hell. This song expresses how one can run out of ideas during the isolation time. Not knowing how to keep busy is more common than one realizes, which the tune shows perfectly.
These parodies cheered me up during this pandemic. I hope you will enjoy them too.
