These two songs were/are intended to be the start of collaborations with different songwriters from EU countries sung in English and different European languages. The idea behind the project is/was to counteract the atmosphere of hostility around Britain leaving the EU, and replace it with friendship through musical collaborations. Unfortunately, the pandemic halted activities: but I want to share these now. The daisy represents two things: a European star from the flag we all shared, but also the working method: making a daisy-chain of ideas from person to person, sending ideas back and forth, until the song is complete.
Ironically, this became the way that everyone had to work during lockdown.
