Do you ever feel like you're able to get through something becuase you had a little bit of a distraction? Watching a movie while you're running on the treadmill or any cardio equipment at the gym, so you don't realize how long you've been on it? Sometimes I get nervous about flying, but when I practice my yoga breathing and put my favorite songs on, I am distracted and I don't realize the plane is taking off and it keeps me calm.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, also known as the CDC, recommends washing your hands for at least 20 seconds to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. Some people think that washing their hands for 20 seconds is a long time, so to make that time go faster, it has always been suggested to sing a song to make the time go faster. The song that is always recommended is Happy Birthday.

"Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday to you. Happy Birthday dear _______, Happy Birthday to you!" 

Okay, not a bad song to sing, but since I work at a radio station, I figured I'd find some better songs to sing while you're washing your hands.

'Call Me Maybe' by Carly Rae Jepsen

  • "Hey, I just met you and this is crazy
    But here's my number, so call me maybe
    It's hard to look right at you baby
    But here's my number, so call me maybe
    Hey I just met you and this is crazy
    But here's my number, so call me maybe
    And all the other boys try to chase me
    But here's my number, so call me maybe

"Party in the USA" by Miley Cyrus

  • So I put my hands up
    They're playing my song,
    And the butterflies fly away
    Noddin' my head like, yeah
    Movin' my hips like, yeah
    I got my hands up,
    They're playin' my song
    You know I'm gonna be okay
    Yeah, it's a party in the USA
    Yeah it's a party in the USA

"Baby" by Justin Bieber

  • And I was like baby, baby, baby oh
    Like baby, baby, baby no
    Like baby, baby, baby oh
    I thought you'd always be mine (mine)
    Baby, baby, baby oh
    Like baby, baby, baby no
    Like baby, baby, baby ooh
    I thought you'd always be mine

"Hollaback Girl" by Gwen Stefani

  • Few times I've been around that track
    So it's not just gonna happen like that
    'Cause I ain't no hollaback girl
    I ain't no hollaback girl (2x)

"Wannabe" by Spice Girls

  • If you wanna be my lover, you gotta get with my friends
    (Gotta get with my friends)
    Make it last forever, friendship never ends
    If you wanna be my lover, you have got to give
    (You've got to give)
    Taking is too easy, but that's the way it is

"Oops I Did it Again" by Britney Spears

  • Oops, I did it again
    I played with your heart, got lost in the game
    Oh baby, baby
    Oops, you think I'm in love
    That I'm sent from above
    I'm not that innocent

I hope you enjoy my list and have a jam session in the bathroom while keeping yourself healthy. No excuses! Wash your hands!
