Another month, another musical topic for the Music Passion game hosted on Dolly’s Blog, All About Lemon. Carolyn, who writes and blogs on ABC of Spirit Talk is a repeat winner for both September and October. She has selected “World” as the theme in this month of November. Congratulations Carolyn – two in a row!
I’ve selected a song written and performed by War titled “The World is a Ghetto.” It is the title track of the album, released in 1972. In vinyl. It is hard to believe this melancholic and mournfully trippy song is now 40 years old. Moreover it seems to stand the test of time. Kick up your feet and have a listen – I’ve managed to find the full album version that has a great sax solo in the middle.
