inspirational lyric of the week: Tennessee

Song title: Tennessee | Artist: Arrested Development

from the album: “3 Years, 5 Months & 2 Days In The Life Of…”

oh, another hospital day

“I know you’re supposed to be my steering wheel

Not just my spare tire

But Lord I ask you

To be my guiding force and truth”

This song is the quintessential upbeat 90’s mainstream hip hop song. Thing is, even though it invaded the radio airwaves and was extremely popular, it was anything but mainstream. The underlying meaning behind the lyrics of “Tennessee” touches on healthy spiritual curiosities all believers have at some point in time. They also shed light on Black American stereotypes. The fact that Arrested Development created such a bundle of uplifting sounds concocted with controversial topics helps me to understand the fine balance between art & reality and how they can truly compliment each other.
