This is A home made demo recording, Work in Progress. sketch of a song written during the Corona Virus lock down Quarantine. Would have liked to add two more voices to sing and share different verses.
’The Best In Us’ -(Getting Used To Quarantine)
Music and Lyrics by Rory Mcleod.
Rory All Vocals
Drum Loops Borrowed.
All Birds Recorded in The Scottish Borders
All Birds are local M.U. members though none of them sing bass! So I had to sing that part…too.
Engineered and Mixed by Rory
I made the song in March after realising I had time when all my touring work was cancelled.
Maybe this is a sombre song for some… I was surprised to realise the gloom that was here but there’s Truth, hope and always yearning…
by now we’re fed up with hearing about lockdown
It’s changing us…
In good and bad ways…
I wanted to sing about it…
There are some corpses…in the song, as there have been many losses around the world.
And some yearning….
and perhaps there’s a silver lining….for some who have not lost loved ones.
In a way to understand life we need to know death and loss…maybe it can help because it’s an inquiry into the nature of existence.
A song story I made… or it made me and this story is making us… I guess that’s why…among many other reasons…why some people whittle and carve, knit, cook or paint or…. here’s to the exhausted front line workers, nurses doctors and carers. X
