Track of the Day: 'We Can Work It Out' by Stevie Wonder

Editor’s Note: This article previously appeared in a different format as part of The Atlantic’s Notes section, retired in 2021.

Reader John Maschoff ends a despairing week of national news on an optimistic note:

He follows up:

If you’re looking for an extra lift for the weekend, might I impose and suggest an extra Stevie gem from the same album. So, so good.
