Moment of Verse: Michael Kiwanuka – “I’m Getting Ready”

I’m Getting Ready by MichaelKiwanuka

Oh my, I didn’t know what it means to believe
Oh my, I didn’t know what it means to believe

But if I hold on tight, is it true?
Would You take care of all that I do?
Oh Lord, I’m getting ready to believe.

Oh my, I didn’t know how hard it would be
Oh my, I didn’t know how hard it would be

But if I hold on tight, is it true?
Would You take care of all that I do?
Oh Lord, I’m getting ready to believe.

Then we’ll be waving hands singing freely
Singing standing tall it’s now coming easy
Oh no more looking down honey
Can’t you see?
Oh Lord, I’m getting ready to believe

Then we’ll be waving hands singing freely
Singing standing tall it’s now coming easy
Oh no more looking down honey
Can’t you see me?

Oh Lord, I’m getting ready
Oh Lord, I’m getting ready
Oh Lord, I’m getting ready to believe

-Michael Kiwanuka

Sonic Stew #12(s): Childhood Shelves

sarabethtucek2

This is a picture of Sarabeth Tucek.  She makes music that’s kinda of a downer, but it’s like listening to aural agony, and it’s amazing right after a late night of drinking with friends or if you just ran over a squirrel or something like that.  Anyway, I thought this picture was just all kinds of beautiful, and that’s why it’s up there.  But it’s also been about a year since the last Sonic Stew, and in an effort to outfox and outshine and just about “out” everything Sean’s upcoming Summer Mix (it’s purported to be life-changing, stay tuned) I, Matt, would like to share bunches of songs that are simply the above the bees knees and every other part of his leggings.  If you’re having a bad day, this mix will kill it and replace it with joy and Jedi powers.  Orange sound Lightsabers will come out of this mix and slice unhappiness into bitty pieces and then fill you will jellybeans.  And if that doesn’t happen, then the glass elevator has a glitch.

And they’re free and cost no money and they’re free.  Here’s to Lightsabers.
