At 75 years old, Van Morrison managed to ruffle a great many feathers with this song.
It was the second of his trio of songs protesting the UK COVID-19 lockdown of 2020, following "Born to Be Free
" (released September 24) and preceding "No More Lockdown
" (released October 22). All three are quite feather-ruffling. All opinions aside, it's not easy for a singer of advanced age to draw so much ire. That's something the young people are supposed to do and something Morrison's generation excelled at in the '60s.
