Lord have mercy, the internet has managed to modernize and corrupt another one of our classic songs. The great, Sam Cooke left us with his hit song “A Change Is Gonna Come”, a song he wrote as a protest song to support the civil rights movement, as black Americans fought for equality and it quickly became the anthem for change. Most of his songs were touching ballads, but in light of today’s popular “turn up” music two young ladies have created a remix that steers far left of Cooke’s message.
As seen in their now viral video, they begin with the leading lyric I Was Born By the River and from there the remix takes a turn as the girl in the background beings to twerk while the other raps about shaking her rump and getting cash. Though the two young ladies have disclosed the video was made in fun, no disrespect intended, we have made our own version, in fun, of how some of our great-grand mothers, church mothers and mother’s mothers would react to their remix, starring Lexi’s Mother Turner and Mother Walker.
They need to be baptized in that river!
