"Find your way out of the wild, wild wood"

Arguably Modfather Paul Weller's finest composition, the quietly bitter yet cautiously optimistic "Wild Wood" is a seemingly simple, straightforward acoustic-led ditty that is, in retrospect, a fine commentary on the perpetual injustices of the world, and trying to look for a way out of the strife. The chord changes here constitute Weller's most virtuosic moment since his similarly themed "That's Entertainment" from his long-ago days fronting The Jam. The song and video are here.
