The lockdowns have been a drag. In the first lockdown we banded together as a group, got creative and worked on a lovely cover of Wish You Were Here, as a sort of tribute to all the people everyone was missing. It was fun, and it felt meaningful.
Now when it feels like there might be light at the end of the tunnel we've all gotten lockdown fatigue. It's a massive effort to get anyone onto Zoom for a social meet-up, and when we do we stare into space, waiting for someone to take the lead and provide us with something interesting to talk about, or maybe just a good excuse to leave and get back to the 50th Netflix series we've watched in the last 12 months. The one that's really scraping the barrel, with less than 20% on Rotten Tomatoes.
In the spirit of all this festering joylessness we've covered Rupert Holmes' Escape (The Pina Colada Song) on Zoom. Enjoy:
