about

This project aims to encourage engagement with and discussion around music archives. The idea is to get modern musicians to record covers of archived material from a hundred years ago.

This song requires a lengthy explanation. You can read that explanation here… wp.me/p4876L-8h

Musicians, this project invites you to dig into the archives. There are gems waiting to be rediscovered and reinterpreted by you, using your own peculiar gifts and sensibilities. Post the songs on your own Bandcamp (or YouTube, or Soundcloud) and retain control of it. I'll embed it on the Hundred Years Late Wordpress and highlight your valiant efforts. You can deliver your fans something new and fresh by reinterpreting something old and forgotten. It's interesting. It's educational. And it's fun.

Let's make music. Let's make history.

lyrics

Lord, I want to be a Christian in my heart, in my heart.
Lord, I want to be a Christian in my heart.

Lord, I want to be more loving in my heart, in my heart.
Lord, I want to be more loving in my heart.

I don't want to be like Judas in my heart, in my heart.
I don't want to be like Judas in my heart.

Lord, I want to be like Jesus in my heart, in my heart.
Lord, I want to be like Jesus in my heart.

In my heart, in my heart.
Lord, I want to be like Jesus in my heart.
