Song of the Day – “Village Ghetto Land” – Stevie Wonder

Would you like to go with me
Down my dead end street
Would you like to come with me
To Village Ghetto Land

It starts so sweetly, with the strings and the lyrics that suggest a magical fairy tale. But things go bad underneath those sweet strings.

Broken glass is everywhere
It’s a bloody scene
Killing plagues the citizens
Unless they own police

Sure would be nice if things had changed in the nearly 40 years since Songs in the Key of Life was released. But no such luck.
