Andy Vaic, a student at Oxford, has released a humorous music video about lockdown to his song ‘Why, Why, Why’. His original music video has over 40 000 views on YouTube and the song got through to the second televised round of Eurovision in Lithuania.

In the music video, Andy visits the sights of Oxford looking for love. Finding everywhere empty, he befriends the local cows. Andy told Cherwell: “I was just alone in a house since the lockdown started and was getting rather bored. So I decided to do something fun and amusing to entertain myself.”

Andy has played in a number of colleges and the song has been played at multiple college bops. He has held concerts in the Bullingdon and Freud, at which he combines many instruments such as the guitar, bass, keyboards, drums and even spoons, by recording loops.

For Cherwell, maintaining editorial independence is vital. We are run entirely by and for students. To ensure independence, we receive no funding from the University and are reliant on obtaining other income, such as advertisements. Due to the current global situation, such sources are being limited significantly and we anticipate a tough time ahead – for us and fellow student journalists across the country.

So, if you can, please consider donating. We really appreciate any support you’re able to provide; it’ll all go towards helping with our running costs. Even if you can't support us monetarily, please consider sharing articles with friends, families, colleagues - it all helps!

Thank you!
