For example, you can sing My Chemical Romance’s “Welcome to the Black Parade”:

BTS fans can sing “On”:

twitter You're supposed to wash your hands for 20 sec but if you are like „I don‘t wanna count to 20 everytime I wash my damn hands“ I can tell you that the refrain of ON is exactly 20 seconds long. So wash your hands, sing ON, have a good time and stay safe

And fans of Kylie Minogue (or Goffin-King) can sing “The Loco-Motion”:

twitter The World Health Org (@WHO) has a super helpful protocol for handwashing in the time of Coronavirus. I’ve re-created here. “Happy Birthday” is getting old; I went with “The Locomotion.”
