Residents and caregivers at the Sydmar Lodge Care Home have been re-creating classic album covers as part of a creative project spurred by activities coordinator Robert Speker. Called “The Show Must Go On,” the goal has been to keep up the spirits of the older residents, who haven’t been able to receive visitors or have any outside entertainment since the lockdown began, according to Speker. (It now allows window and garden visits.)
I saw this the other day, and I thought it was brilliant and brought a smile to my face. It instantly reminded me of the move called Young@Heart from 2007, where a chorus of senior citizens cover songs from The Talking Heads to Jimi Hendrix.
As a long time Clash fan, this has to be my favorite with the Bowie version a close second.
