And here he is covering “I Must Tell Jesus” in something very close to a tent revival setting.
As for the singing, I been batting this question around with a colleague of mine the past few days as to what on earth to make of all this. There may be some truth to this take, which basically pegs Cain as Uncle Ruckus running for president. Still … it seems it might also more complicated (and yet maybe more obviously simple) than that too. I have a few theories (one of which keys off the title of this post) but since y’all are probably more the target audience for Cain than I, maybe it’d be better for me to listen a bit first to your thoughts.Email this Post
