Gigs cancelled? Confined to the house? Well, at least you’re earning the same as Calvin Harris this week!

Meanwhile, here we’ve compiled a list of tracks to help you through and hopefully make you smile, at least a bit.

To be honest, some of these are better titles than tracks, but there are enough gems in here for genuine musical entertainment. Feel free to add yours in the comments…

Thanks to the Digital DJ Tips team for chirping in with some of these suggestions, from the comfort of their homes, of course…

Our lockdown playlist….

Let’s start with some weirdly prescient stuff from Ska’s biggest band. Great 1970s UK footage, too.

 
Next, try turning this Pink Floyd-sampling monster up LOUD. Lockdown never sounded so anthemic.

 
Well, it’s got Lockdown in the title, and it’s a banger. That’ll do us…

 
Obvious but apt… and from one of the world’s biggest festivals, for added irony (ah, festivals – remember them?).

 
Robyn knew something we didn’t…

 
Looks like Billy did too…

 
Certainly feels like this round here. Actually an amazing live version of this song.

 
That feeling when you’re safely back in isolation after a shopping / cigarette / dog walking run…

 
Let’s hope it doesn’t come to this…

 
This early Coldplay track is oddly apt… check those lyrics. Unexpectedly poignant.

 
Fifth Harmony want you to stay home. Better advice than ever.

 
Timely advice from Alice Deejay…

 
MC Hammer’s got the right idea too.

 
If you take the title as a request, not a statement of rock and roll substance abuse, this one makes sense too…

 
Social distancing never felt so menacing…

 
Probably for the best, Tom…

 
Phone calls are up 40% since the lockdown, apparently…

 
Great Ibiza anthem…

 
How everyone must feel at some point under lockdown – especially if Freddie turned up in a wig and tight crop top…

 
You can do it. 🙏

 
A feel-good reminder that all this must pass…

 
Finally, something we’ll hopefully all be saying soon. Massive slab of soulful 1990s house to boot. Play it very loud and smile.

Just for fun…

Ha ha! Well, they say this is the animal it jumped from…

 
Meanwhile, a timeless track from The Mighty Boosh.

 
To end, just gonna leave this here.

Finally…

Well that’s the best we could do here at Digital DJ Tips in the time we could find between, you know, trying to navigate a way out of this bloody mess.

Stay safe people, keep in touch… and share your ideas in the comments…
