Lockdown Blues - Ricky Biscuits and the Infanta Castillas
Submitted by: Ricky B.
This song was written and recorded during the initial creative rush and strange personal freedom created by the lockdown. Having evacuated from London with my pregnant wife, I was exiled from my home studio, and rediscovered the joys of electronic music creation on Reason. There was a bitttersweet element to lockdown. Despite the fear and suffering, there was a rare chance to escape from the routines of modern life:
I didn’t have to go to work today…got no lockdown blues
I didn’t have to get dressed up today…got no lockdown blues
I didn’t have to get the tube today…got no lockdown blues
I got to stay at home today…got no lockdown blues
I want to stay on these lockdown rules
I’d rather live with the lockdown blues
Than go back to the normal rules
So give me those lockdown blues!
