Released in 1987, Luka by Suzanne Vega is about family violence and child abuse. (It’s worth watching the video.)
Yes I think I’m okay
I walked into the door again
Well, if you ask that’s what I’ll say
And it’s not your business anyway
I guess I’d like to be alone
With nothing broken, nothing thrown
I chose this song to continue with the theme of family violence for Some weekend reading (which included a range of articles or posts that have caught my eye on family and domestic violence) and Saturday quote (which was by Rosie Batty about family violence).
I didn’t realise that in 2014 Vega released a follow up song “Song of the Stoic” which was written from the point of view of Luka as he looked back on life.
