Nostalgia (part 9) - Downtown

Social Distancing

When the COVID-19 pandemic hit in 2020, the lockdowns began. Asking citizens to stay at home and practice social and physical distancing.

Before this time, there were so many everyday pleasures we took for granted. Especially human contact. Gatherings. Schools. Religious ceremonies. Going to various stores and restaurants and shows. 

Once such social activity is expressed in this hit song by Petula Clark, Downtown, released over 55 years ago, in November 1964.


A song longing for contact with the community.  

Meanwhile, we wait for the day when Downton will fully re-open again. And relish the simple pleasures of living.
