Rita Wilson's been making the most of her quarantined time as she recovers from the coronavirus.

The actress took to Twitter early on Friday (March 13) to announce that she wanted to make a Spotify playlist for her fellow self-quarantiners to jam to, and asked her followers to ponder songs and a playlist title that would best fit the nature of social isolation.

"This is what one does in quarantine. [You think] of stuff like this," she joked.

Just a few hours later, Wilson unveiled her "Quarantunes" playlist, which features 28 songs that touch on themes of loneliness, healing and surviving. Among the chosen songs are Wilson's own "Don't Let Me Be Lonely Tonight" and "Girls Night In," Johnny Rivers' "Rockin' Pneumonia and the Boogie Woogie Flu," MC Hammer's "U Can't Touch This," Miley Cyrus' "The Climb" and Destiny's Child's "Survivor," among others.

The playlist comes just days after her husband Tom Hanks took to Instagram to announce that the duo tested positive for the virus in Australia. "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?" the actor wrote in an update on Thursday. "Remember, despite all the current events, there is no crying in baseball."

In the meantime, listen to Wilson's "Quarantunes" below.
