It seems Tom Hanks and his wife Rita Wilson are using music to make their days in self-isolation more upbeat after testing positive for coronavirus.
The couple - who are currently in Australia to film the Elvis Presley biopic, in which Hanks is set to play Presley's manager - announced last Thursday that they had both tested positive for the wide-spreading disease.
One day later, Wilson took to Twitter to ask fans for suggestions regarding a playlist — a quarantine playlist.
Posting on Friday night, the 63-year-old wrote: "Hi guys! I want to make a playlist for people self quarantining. Something that might relate to isolation, perhaps? Can you send some song ideas that I can add? Also, what should we call it?... This is what one does in quarantine. U think of stuff like this."
A few hours later, the actress returned to the social media platform with the title of her playlist after fans issued a slew of suggestions.
She announced: "And the winner for the quarantine playlist naming is QUARANTUNES!"
The playlist features 28 relevant tracks like Billy Idol's 'Dancing with Myself', the Bee Gees' 'Night Fever' and MC Hammer's classic 'You Can’t Touch This.'
For anyone self-isolating, the playlist definitely has some great tunes to bring some light to a bleak situation.
Last night, the Forrest Gump star also shared a picture during their coronavirus containment.
Alongside a shot of some vegemite on toast, he wrote: "Thanks to the Helpers. Let’s take care of ourselves and each other. Hanx."
