Music fans and coronavirus victims have taken to Twitter to share their 'pandemic playlists' via Spotify.

The music streaming giant goes by the tagline, "Music for every mood", and that has proven to be true during the global coronavirus pandemic.

Some of the lists have gone 'viral', pardon the pun, due to their titles that attempt to poke fun at a terrifying situation as COVID-19 claims thousands of lives around the world.

People who otherwise would be socialising normally and holding parties have been forced to self-isolate at home.

Even singer and actress Rita Wilson, the wife of Tom Hanks, has shared her "Quarantunes".

Wilson and Hanks both tested positive to the virus while filming Baz Lurhman's Elvis movie on the Gold Coast.

Wilson's list of tunes include her own cover of Leaving On a Jet Plane, Lonely People by America, All By Myself by Eric Carmen, Survivor by Destiny's Child, and I Wanna Be Sedated by the Ramones.

Her playlist ends with – appropriately – I Want a New Drug by Huey Lewis and the News.
