‘Here Comes the Sun’ Performed at a Spanish Unemployment Office by Flash Mob

August 13, 2013 in Culture, Music by Justin Beach

I think that George Harrison would have loved this use of his song. The Spanish economy, like many in Europe, isn’t exactly booming and this brought some smiles to people who looked like they could use one. As Dan Colman at Open Culture says:

“It’s a song about getting through the darkness — personal, professional, seasonal, etc. And it’s simply a perfect pick for the flashmob performance you’ll witness above. Unlike so many other feel-good flashmob performances staged in Europe (see below), this one takes place in a dreary unemployment office in Spain (Madrid, to be precise) where unemployment hovers around 26% and homelessness is on the rise. It doesn’t try to sugarcoat life in Spain. It just provides a little ray of hope.”
