Music in the Key of Social Science: Stevie Wonder – Big Brother

Music in the Key of Social Science: Stevie Wonder – Big Brother

I’ve been doing this series about social science themed music! These particular lyrics are by the prodigiously talented Stevie Wonder. In the song, Big Brother, Wonder talks about the election promises politicians make to address poverty and marginalisation, but are soon forgotten after an election win. But the song is also a celebration of social justice triumphing with collective action: “I live in the ghetto, Someday I will move on my feet to the other side.”
