Black And White Mix Tape
My skin color... not too important. What I said... pretty important. Here is a mix I made for you, with songs where the color of skin gets a little mixed. Most of these are simple covers, but rearranged in a way that help the lyrics shine through in a whole new light. Sometimes you need to do that with Me. Take My stories about Me you have heard over and over, and look at them from a new angle. Thanks to all who helped with ideas.
(Probably not safe for Conservative Churches. I, Jesus Christ, do not much enjoy cussing, but I used to be good friends with a lot of rough guys, and believe Me, I have heard worse. Sitting around that fire at night, those fishermen were RACEY! They started cutting it out once they got a little more into the fact that I was seriously actually God sitting right there next to them, but even then, they had trouble holding it back from time to time. Ok, I'm dragging this out a little too long, so onto the mix. Enjoy.)
