Wish I Could Wake In September (COVID-19 Mashup – Pink Floyd vs Green Day vs Richard Hendrick)

Well there’s one good/bad* thing to the current events I have started making mashups again!
(*delete as necessary)

This is my current response to the coronavirus epidemic aka COVID-19, a complete nightmare and I want to just sleep til September and wish others were here in my isolation. Already had the Pink Floyd ‘Wish You Were Here’ (well a cover by London Orion Orchestra since no instrumental of the original exists) vs Green Day’s ‘Wake Me Up When September Ends’, but then heard Richard Hendrick’s moving poem, ‘Lockdown’ and added him reading it on BBC Radio London over the phone….lends itself to radio noises, that. That poem gives me hope in a rather bleak mashup.

So remember to sing from your balconies, and listen to the birds beyond the hum and static of your thoughts.
