Rita Wilson compiled a music playlist for those in quarantine like her, a day after she and Tom Hanks tested positive for COVID-19.

Hanks disclosed their condition via a Twitter post last Thursday, March 12.


While the couple isolates themselves to avoid spreading the coronavirus, Wilson decided to stay positive by making the playlist.


The actress-singer first asked her fans and followers on Twitter for help with the compilation last Friday, March 13.

“Something that might relate to isolation, perhaps?” she said. “Can you send some song ideas that I can add?”

She also asked them for ideas for the playlist’s name, suggesting that it could be titled “Quarantine Choruses”.

“This is what one does in quarantine,” she added. “[You] think of stuff like this.”

Moments later, she shared the finished playlist which she named “Quarantunes”.


The compilation consists of 31 songs and lasts for 1 hour and 58 minutes.

Included in the playlist are hit songs from different generations such as Eric Carmen’s “All By Myself”, Richard Marx’s “Right Here Waiting”, Destiny’s Child’s “Survivor” and Miley Cyrus’s  “The Climb”.

She also included some of her own tracks such as “Girls Night In”, “Go on Through It” and “Sometimes Love”.

Wilson and Hanks have been placed under quarantine in a Gold Coast hospital in Australia following their diagnoses.
