Living For The City
Counting down to the season premiere of The Wire . Two hours to go. Compelling narratives of our urban landscape are on my mind. The Wire gives it to you like a punch in the gut. No sugar-coating. Stevie Wonder's Living in the City is one of my favorite songs - an urban anthem I didn't think could be improved upon. But in fact, it can. Especially if you add Ray Charles in an exhilarating dual performance with Wonder. This one goes down easier than The Wire , but both make me swoon.
