Song of the Day, October 2: Making Contact by Bruce Cockburn

CockburnContactToday’s song is the centerpiece of Bruce Cockburn’s glorious Stealing Fire. Cockburn’s work became increasingly political in the 80s as he travelled the world, observing poverty and oppression that he was determined to shine a bright light on. He firmly believes that the personal is political and that change requires commitment. Making Contact celebrates these themes, demanding that we work together to improve the world and make space for our shared humanity.

Enjoy this inspired, passionate song today.
