What does one do when in quarantine? You make a Spotify playlist of course, and that's just what Rita Wilson did!

Wilson and her husband, Tom Hanks announced that they tested positive for the Coronavirus earlier this week and are currently in quarantine in Australia. The famous couple went down under while Hanks was working on his newest film but Rita isn't spending her time talking to a volleyball like her husband's iconic character from the 2000 movie, "Cast Away," instead she enlisted the help of her fans to make a playlist filled with isolations songs.

"Hi guys!I want to make a @Spotify 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?Quarantine Choruses? This is what one does in quarantine.Uthink of stuff like this," Wilson explained in a tweet on Friday.

Listen, you have to do something to pass the time when you are on quarantine. Rita's playlist is filled with songs about escaping and being lonely and while she had no trouble selecting the isolation songs, she needed a little help picking a name. After much deliberation and feedback from fans, she came up with the most appropriate name for her Spotify playlist.

"And the winner for the quarantine playlist naming is QUARANTUNES! Head to @Spotify to listen," she triumphantly tweeted.

What Songs Are In Her Playlist

Rita came up with 28 songs that made up the perfect soundtrack for people who can't go anywhere or do anything. While her version of "Leaving on a Jet Plane" obviously made the list, there are several others that define her situation. "U Can't Touch This" by MC Hammer is probably the most appropriate quarantune but "Survivor" by Destiny's Child and "Dancing With Myself" by Billy Idol are in the running.

It was also very sweet that she included the song, "Love Will Keep Us Together" by Captain & Tennille because at least she is on lockdown with her hubby.

Tom Hanks is the best because even when he is personally dealing with a tough situation, he spreads hope and makes us all laugh. The actor shared an update on social media on Thursday and cracked a joke from the movie, "A League of Their Own."

"Hello folks. @ritawilson and I want to thank everyone here Down Under who are taking such good care of us. We have Covid-19 and are in isolation so we do not spread it to anyone else. There are those for whom it could lead to a very serious illness. We are taking it one-day-at-a-time. There are things we can all do to get through this by following the advice of experts and taking care of ourselves and each other, no? Remember, despite all the current events, there is no crying in baseball. Hanx," the iconic actor wrote on Instagram.

That guy is the best. We wish Rita and Tom a speedy recovery.
