The basic idea of this game is similar to stuff like "guess the screenshot". The hint-giver writes something that references the lyrics and/or title of a song, and everyone tries to guess what song it is. It shouldn't exactly be the lyrics because that's easy to look up, but the link between what you write and the answer should be obvious in hindsight. Answers are title/artist, link to it if you want.

Here's my hint to start off: "The king gave his crown to the wizard."

Sorry for the delay, I haven't been checking the forum regularly. Here's my hint: "Improve a sorrowful song."

Okay.

I am not sure if you guys use public social media platforms, but it has to do with the resurgence of a popular band from the same era as the one of the song I guessed...

Okay, the song was "You Make Lovin' Fun" by Fleetwood Mac. Does anybody else want to go?

You won't believe the things I've seen
Far beyond your wildest dreams
I've seen chaos and order reign supreme
I've seen the beauty of the universe so peaceful and serene
In seconds turn to violence and screams

Umm... were you trying to guess my song? Because if so that's wrong.

Is it Weird Al's "With My Own Eyes"?

From the chorus:
"With My Own Eyes
I've seen things that'd drive a normal man insane
Wish I could disconnect my brain
From My Own Eyes"

Cool. I'll go, then:

"That infant is in jail because he committed murder, but actually he murdered a train, his mother is a train, he might also be a train, and we're also pretty sure that his mother might have been the one who committed the murder instead. The one thing we're actually certain of is that he isn't a car."

I'd say that's getting colder, so to speak. Also, the song I have in mind has no mention of quarantining or the virus.

Okay, um...I think this turned out to be much more obscure than intended. Here is a big hint that should give it away:
