Covid Island Discs
Day 358: Eyes like twins, Wilson Phillips
Wow we begin week 52 of Covid Island Discs. We have nearly made it through a whole year of UK lockdown which is a sobering thought. In some ways it seems like only yesterday that Johnson announced the first lockdown all the back in March 2020 but in other ways it seems like half a lifetime ago. Certainly it will be great to finally bring Covid Island Discs to an end when life in the UK returns to normal. However, I sometimes wonder whether the disruption this virus has caused, will leave permanent change to our society in a similar way 911 forever changed air travel. I hope not but alas, things often don’t work out the way you hope.
To mark the start of week 52, I am citing a first from the female group Wilson Phillips. In many ways this band is quite “sweet” to the ear so not what you would describe as rock. A better description would be soft pop which might not be to your taste. “Eyes like twins” however is probably their most “non-sweet” song and certainly deserves a place in Covid Island Discs. Sadly, I could not find a video to go with the tune so the video below is the next best thing: someone putting together a Powerpoint presentation of images to accompany the tune.
