The End Of The World by REM.
The End Of The World by REM


Like it or not, I think this has to be THE Christmas song of 2020. Maybe it's not the end of the world as we know it, but there have certainly been a lot of changes forced on us this year, which will carry on into next.

In Ireland we have not long come out of lock down for the second time, and already there is talk of locking back down again by January at the latest. Where my parents and brother live, the south east of England, they have just introduced a new tier of restrictions, 4, banning any mixing with those outside of your own household. Travel is only allowed for very limited reasons. Even those in other tiers can only mix on Christmas Day, on a very limited way.

So, ready to harmonize with Michael Stipe - Time I spent some time alone - because that is what it is sadly going to be like for many, many people.
