“What I remembered was ‘downtown, where the lights shine bright,’” Metro Officer Tyler Luellen said of the song playing, as he and his fellow officers evacuated people from the area.
“The music started, and I notified over the [police radio] air to notify other officers,” said Luellen, “Then, after the song, it continued to go back to the announcement for a little while.”
The Christmas Day bomb blast injured at least three people and severely damaged more than 40 buildings.
The officer said he looked up the song later and discovered it was “Downtown” by Petula Clark, the chart-topping song that begins, “when you’re alone and life is making you lonely, you can always go downtown.”
