Spanish Police Play Songs In The Streets To Entertain People During Lockdown

Spanish Police Play Songs In The Streets To Entertain People During Lockdown

Keeping spirits high during lockdown is a major challenge, but police are going above and beyond to do their bit in Spain.

Footage shared on Twitter shows two police cars winding down a deserted street with their sirens on as quarantined residents applaud.

While ordinarily this sound means 'get out of the way someone's in trouble', in these strange times it is seemingly more like an ice cream van jingle, alerting people of an impending singalong.

Officers can then be seen exiting their vehicles as the main man, let's call him the Enrique Iglesias of the force, starts playing guitar and singing through a Britney Spears style headset. Residents can then be heard joining in as the other officers clap and dance around in circles.

The song finished, police depart to more applause, presumably on their way to serenade another part of town.

It's all very joyous stuff in the grave times that we find ourselves in.

This performance was the work of the Algaida police department in Majorca, with Diario de Mallorca reporting that they performed between 3pm and 7pm yesterday afternoon (20 March). According to the local paper, they will do the same again today in Pina and Randa.

It's a fair point - nap/siesta windows have never been more flexible than they are currently.

Across Europe, the coronavirus pandemic has served as a reminder of the power of music to unite us and build camaraderie. In Italy, one of the worst hit countries in the world, people have sang from their windows in a spirit of solidarity.

A clip filmed in housing blocks in Casoria commune in Naples showed people chanting songs from local football team Società Sportiva Calcio Napoli, with the words: "People like us will never give up; people like us will never give up; people like us; people like us; people like us will never give up!

"Come on Italy! Come on Naples! Forever!"

They also sang: "We are all united. Come out on your balconies, out on your balconies! Come out on your balconies, out on your balconies!

"The virus that is facing us will not defeat us... The virus that is facing us will not defeat us!"
