♬ A song suitable for the moment: {The War On Drugs} – In Chains


Never before has this song been suitable. Last night for the umpteenth time the government issued an extraordinary decree forcing people to stay at home to avoid the spread of the coronavirus, which in Italy is making thousands of infected people.
At home you can do many things but you often feel in chains ..



Call and listen
Calling out your name
Trying to imitate myself
Forget me in the middle
Shining every light upon it
Still I miss the way you’d hold me close
In a cold wind
Caught you in a room, staring at the light
I’ve been all night
Is it the life that we’re just living in?
Still I wanna celebrate love, I
I’ve been rolling on sixty, I can die on the floor
I’ve been shaken and delivered
There’a a girl out there with silence in her eyes
The truth is in the dark
Yeah, I’ve seen the moon comin’ in view
Yeah, I need you, I’m coming in, too
In view
Ain’t no wind that I can feel in the way, in the way
In the freezing rain
Turn your head my way and my heart and look and see
And I look away
Ain’t no wind that I feel, flyin’ with no way to lose
Ain’t no shame to hold you, to hold you here, for losing you
Hiding from an enemy
Something inside me that I ain’t
Hard to see clear these days
Darkness on my mind
As I stare into the ocean floor
And I wonder where I once was
Was I falling through the air tonight
And crumble into your arms?
Is this love?
Are you sure?
Is it something
You can control?
Out of time, yeah
I’m in chains
I’m in love
I’m in pain
All these changes everywhere
Just go ahead and take my hand
Pull me close don’t let me go
Try to understand
I believe in all the power
In doing what we can do
We can try to learn to make it through
Cover the other side
And I’m feeling it all coming in here
How do we decide what we can do?
I don’t read your mind, can we choose?

♬ Coldplay – Champion Of The World (Official Video)


This is a hit of the moment .. and coldplay always prove to be a great band. Brilliant sound and catchy song.



I tried my best to be just like
The other boys in school
I tried my best to get it right
And died at every June
This mountainside is suicide
This dream will never work
Still the sign upon my headstone, write
“A champion of the world”
I tried my best to stay alight
Fly like a firework
I tried my best to taking flak
But my rocket ship reversed
No referee, don’t stop the fight
Everyone can see I’m hurt
But I’ll stand before conquistadors
‘Til I’m champion of the world
and when I sail
I’m sailing west
(Though I might fail) knowing I might fail
But still I am hoping for the best
(In my dreams) and in my dreams
Onto my chest
She’ll bring the colors and say
“I wandered the whole wide world
But baby, you’re the best”
La, la, la, la, oh
Oh, oh, oh, ay
La, la, la, la
So I’m flying on my bicycle
Heading upwards from the Earth
I am jumping with no parachute
Out into the universe
I am E.T. on my bicycle
With this kid and I want more
I am riding on my rocket ship
And I’m champion of the world
