Covid Island Discs
Week 16 Video Playlist
This week contains some very interesting visual content in terms of the videos for each musical piece. From the usual spectacular concert lighting of Pink Floyd in “Comfortably Numb” to the image montage of Amy McDonald’s “4th of July” and Lorde’s “Royals”, through to the story telling videos of Kate Bush’s “This Woman’s work” or the much darker video of Lilly Allen’s “Smile” — a video which puts the whole lyrical content of Smile in a much darker context. I’m not sure I would want Lilly Allen as a friend!
If you hover your mouse over the top right of this video window, you will see a button. Clicking on this icon will bring up the full play list of videos and you can scroll down to select whichever one you to play.
My Video Summary
If you click on the Playlist Video for Week 16 (top right of this page) you will be taken to a single video which allows you to play each song in this week's list one after the other. Alternatively, if you watch my own video summary below of this week's songs at the end of the video two playlist links will appear. The one on the left hand side will take you to the video playlist for this week while the one on the right will take you to a single video playlist that allows you to play the complete Covid Island Discs collection for all the currently completed weeks so far — well over 200 songs and counting!
