Another Anthem for Anyone in Need (Vid of the Day)

Ms. Shirley Șerban performs Lockdown, her pandemic inspired, lyrical update of Downtown, originally composed by Englishman Tony Hatch. Back in 1964, Ms. Petula Clark’s recording became an instant international hit… a Billboard Hot 100, stateside chart topper and, on the UK Singles Chart, she wound up at #2.

Were Billboard to ever diversify their charts to establish a new category… specifically for pandemic anthems… Ms. Șerban’s timely performance / lyrics would surely become a chart topper, too.

And for whatever my own timely words may be worth…

Stay Safe… Stay Home… Stay Healthy…
