We won't judge you for singing these songs in the washroom

With the outbreak of coronavirus, known as COVID-19,  one of the easiest and most effective ways to prevent the spread of infectious diseases is to wash your hands for at least 20 seconds. As you may know 20 seconds is approximately the time it takes to sing Happy Birthday twice, but if you hate that song, you can sing away COVID-19 (and other viruses) with these five anthems:

1/5 Gloria Gaynor - I Will Survive

You might not be going through a breakup but in this rough patch we call coronavirus, this song is what you need. Sing to the chorus of Gloria Gaynor's iconic song while guarding yourself against the virus. You can also join the artist on her 20-second #IWillSurviveChallenge on Tik Tok. 

2/5 Lizzo - Truth Hurts

Like Lizzo said, Truth Hurts, but we know you can take it. Wash your hands with this artist's smash hit. You can get posters by artist Bianca Bosso printed to put up in your bathroom, kitchen or workplace as a reminder. 

3/5 Queen - Bohemian Rhapsody

When you get to the line "mama just killed a man," replace "man" with "virus". You're welcome.

4/5 Carol Channing/Marilyn Monroe - Diamonds Are A Girl's Best Friend

William Gibson is the Internet's new diamond. The 17-year-old UK-based designer and developer created the now viral hand-washing lyrics meme generator where you can choose your favourite tune and transform it into the National Health Service’s guide to cleaning your hands—brilliant! We made ours using Diamonds Are A Girl's Best Friend. I mean, could you think of a more Tatler song? 

5/5 Bee Gees - Stayin' Alive

You can still sing for 20 seconds when cleaning your hands with the new love of your life, anti-bac, to make sure you're stayin' alive properly.
