Electric Dreams

Ireland - Dublin

When I think about the pandemic and how it has isolated so many of us from loved ones, this song springs to mind, not only for its ridiculously up beat pop melody but also how the lyrics extoll the positive aspects of modern technology.  All the technical viabilities this world has to offer has served to bind us together virtually and bridge that terrible gap.  This the first time in the history of global pandemics where information can travel faster than the virus and has helped curtail its deadly endgame.  As the song says… ‘We’ll always be together, however far it seems…’  What a hopeful message to bring to the world right now, and one you can dance to…
