Seriously, Lift Every Voice is legendary but the real question remains: is it LIT ENOUGH? We’re not sure. These songs, though, have you covered.

Swag Surf – This is the song that unites men, women and children. Arm-in-arm swagging and surfing.

California Love – Maybe this is only specific to Cali…but when this song comes on, we all live in Cali.

Know Yourself – Don’t you think Carter G. Woodson, deep down, wanted us to be Woes together?

Rosa Parks – Ah ha hey hey baby uh huh AND it was named after one of our heroes.

Back That AZZ Up – One nation, under a shadow of big, bulbous rumps.
