Morning Song – Wanna Be Happy?

November 15, 2015

Do you “Wanna Be Happy”?

Judging from this single off Kirk Franklin’s new album, the ingredients are something like: 1 part accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior (“Say ‘Jesus take the wheel’“), 1 part Twelve Step program spirituality (“It’s time for you to get out the way“), and 1 part 1970s sweet soul music (I hear Al Green’s “I’m So Tired Of Being Alone”, but there might be a couple more oldies-but-goodies sampled in the chorus).  There may be a couple of spices or Grandma’s “secret ingredients” that I’m missing, but I’m pretty sure that’s the basic recipe*.

(*Note: that’s not a criticism; it’s a pretty darn good recipe.)
