Song of the Moment: Talib Kweli “Get By”

I vaguely remember seeing this video for the first time on BET. I wasn’t really feeling it then; perhaps I was too young to care. When I became more conscious of the music that I listen to, Talib Kweli was the first person recommended. He became a quick favorite and has remained a favorite for the past three years or so. And his album Quality remains a an instant classic in my heart. Quality shot up my list of favorite albums. And today, on Father’s Day, Talib Kweli is on repeat in the iTunes.

The lyrics to the chorus, classic:

“This morning, I woke up
Feeling brand new and I jumped up
Feeling my highs, and my lows
In my soul, and my goals
Just to stop smokin, and stop drinkin
And I’ve been thinkin – I’ve got my reasons
Just to get (by), just to get (by)
Just to get (by), just to get (by)”

P.S. Happy Father’s Day!
