A movement needs some good songs. We – all of us skeptical about what our betters are telling us to do about this little virus – are starting to get some.
Check out the latest, out of Canada, where they have it way worse than we do, even with the “free health care”. Matt Bevner is a contemporary Christian music artist. But this message is secular https://youtu.be/_qrSbTIA2Lw.
I’m glad some young folks are stepping up. Till now, the strongest songs were from my generation’s septagenarian guitar god Eric, this his most recent https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dNt4NIQ7FTA.
And this his first one, with a little help from Van Morrison, protesting the lockdowns https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DirL4RI1448
Way back when this first started, I thought we needed to have a fun song to keep our spirits light as we fought this thing together (beware, much virology follows the song nonsense) https://theviewfromharbal.com/2020/03/14/my-corona/.
It stopped being a laughing matter long ago, but our spirits can still use a boost. Thanks to Messrs Bevner, Clapton, and Morrison for their contributions to that effort. Lets hope we hear some more.
