do you still feel like to make or even listen to music when there's no more social life outside ? 


I don't but maybe that's just me... music is life, and life isn't seeing masked zombies wandering in the streets... 




My goodness yes- I have music on as soon as I get up to the moment I go to sleep every day, with the exception of when I'm watching a programme on Netflix or a video on YouTube.  (I do not have a TV).


I love classical music and 1930s/40s swing/jazz/dance band music.

I'm 52 but love the music of my Grandad's era- the 1930s/40s. 


This is just perfection in every way: the arrangement,  melody, beat, musicianship, melody, excellent singer. Al Bowlly is my favourite singer! This is from the Golden Age Of British music- ther 1930s dance band era. ( Al himself was Greek/Lebanese who grew up in Mozambique but moved to London).


I am very old fashioned and do not like pop music ( except 1950s doo wop, Roy Orbison and Sigur Ros).


But mostly I'm listening to 1930s/40s swing/jazz/dance band music and some classical music like Mozart, Chopin and Rachmaninov.


I'm a huge vintage nerd, and absolutely long to have a time machine to go back to the 1930s to go to one of those jazz/swing clubs to see live singers and bands ( to and fro like Gary Sparrow in Goodnight Sweetheart!)
