Your Thursday Moment of Words Fail Me: Special "Everybody Sits Three Seats Apart" Edition

From 2020 B.V. (before the end of the virus), please enjoy the insanely brilliant (and heretofore unknown to me) Emma's Revolution and their obviously wildly pertinent update of Julie Gold's oft-covered folkie classic "From a (Social) Distance."

Seriously. That is just freaking brilliant -- funny, touching, gorgeously sung, and it couldn't have come at a better moment.

I have said it several times in the last few weeks, but one of the few silver linings of our current crisis is that, when its over, we're going to look back on it as a vintage time for black comedy and gallows humor.

P.S.: I just looked these kids up; you can find out more about them over HERE. And god bless 'em.

Gorgeous. It may be preaching to the choir, but the song has to be sung and,the choir has to keep singing it. The notes are votes. To quote SPEBQSA, "Keep America singing." Thank you, Steve.
