Yes, the air quality is probably killing you right now. Yes, all the N95 masks disappear when you need them. Yes, your tweet about the PSI being higher than your PSLE score is hilarious. Besides doing what we do best (complaining), how can distressed Singaporeans soldier on through this funky fog?
Spotify saves the day (in a very unique way) – with their “Hazed And Confused” playlist! We came across this aptly-named compilation (the same title caused a Ben & Jerry’s fiasco in 2014) from Twitter user @idgaina, who summed it up better than we ever could.

Created specially for Spotify Malaysia and Singapore, the 42-song playlist is fronted by the description “Haze is a strong word, but we really really really don’t like you.” And who might that “you” be, hmm?
With songs that revolve around flames and/or breathing difficulties, the almost 3-hour-long playlist features hits such as:
“We Didn’t Start The Fire” – Billy Joel
“Smoke Gets In Your Eyes” – The Platters
“No Air” – Jordin Sparks ft. Chris Brown
“I See Fire” – Ed Sheeran
“Breathe Again” – Sara Bareilles
…and many other gems that are hilariously taken out of context, but perfect for this one.
So shut the windows and keep the haze out, plug in your earpiece and shut the world out. This soundtrack is the only thing you need in this trying time. That, and a few masks handy.
