A Song for Covid
Thomas Kaufman, 17, Lance Algabre, 18, Andrew Garcia, 17
This song is inspired by the brutal couple of months that followed the first spike of Covid-19 in the United States. We felt ourselves become anxious, and depressed, and we wrote this song to try and spread some positivity to teenagers all over the world. We recorded different parts at our houses. We videoed some of the instruments live and some not. All of the videoed vocals are lip-synced in order to increase the workflow, creativity and fun. Aside from recording stuff, I created a fake Zoom, called Boom, to be the canvas, if you will, of the video.
I just wanna, I just wanna go outside,
Staying inside got me losing my mind (x2)
I just wanna go outside
Stayin' inside, I've lost my mind
Think about all those times
Remember those good old days
Before we stood 6ft away
Now they are just memories to replay
