I’m gonna quote this straight from the press release:
“The Senate supported legislation Thursday to make ‘Swing Low, Sweet Chariot’ Oklahoma’s official gospel song. Sen. Eason McIntyre is the author of Senate Bill 73 recognizing the song written and composed by Wallis Willis, a Choctaw freedman in the old Indian Territory, sometime before 1862.”
Talk among yourselves.
While you’re here, grab these free MP3s:
“I Can, I Will” — Gospel Claws. Rumbling toms, triumphant guitar and theatrical melodies? I’ve got the confetti if you’ve got the balloons.
“Dusk Till Dawn” — Nedry. Portishead introduces dubstep to house. The three go clubbing.
“The Bros of Summer” — Phineas and the Lonely Leaves. I don’t remember being this morose in summer, but whatever. The song’s title is awesome anyway. (pictured)
