Becky & Sandy – I Wish We’d All Been Ready

{Over the next several weeks, I’ll be taking a look back at my seven favorite tracks from the first seven years of Melting Pot in what I’m calling “7 for 7!”}

It was hard enough to choose just seven songs from each year of Melting Pot, trying to choose just seven total, my seven favorite songs from the past seven years, has been near impossible. This song actually didn’t end up on our 7-Year Anniversary mix from DJ Frane because the “Super President of The World” track was just begging to be cut up (and Frane did, to great effect!), but without a doubt “I Wish We’d All Been Ready” is one of the most distinctive songs I’ve ever shared on the website. Finding this private press “Doom Gospel” record at Record Jungle is one of my all-time favorite finds.  The music isn’t very funky, but it is sung with conviction and with no doubt, complete and total faith.  Hopefully one day we’ll get the full story on these two and David Lewis, apparently at least Sandy is still around (according to comments on the old page), but if this is all we have, the story of Becky & Sandy is definitely told through it’s apocalyptic and sincere music.

Becky & Sandy – “I Wish We’d All Been Ready”

Life was filled with guns and wars and everyone got trampled on the floor,
I wish we’d all been ready,
Children died the days grew cold a piece of bread would buy a bag of gold,
I wish we’d all been ready,
There’s no time to change your mind the sun is coming you’ve been left behind

A man and wife asleep in bed she hears a noise and turns her head he’s gone,
I wish we’d all been ready,
Two men walking up a hill one disappears and one’s left standing still,
I wish we’d all been ready,
There’s no time to change your mind the sun is coming you’ve been left behind

The Anti-christ is now in power, mark of the beast speaks of the final hour,
I wish we’d all been ready
Now ride forth the horsemen four, famine, pestilence, death and bloody war,
I wish we’d all been ready
There’s no time to change your mind the sun is coming you’ve been left behind

Life was filled with guns and wars and everyone got trampled on the floor,
I wish we’d all been ready
Children died the days grew cold a piece of bread would buy a bag of gold,
I wish we’d all been ready
There’s no time to change your mind the sun is coming you’ve been left behind

There’s no time to change your mind,
How could you have been so blind?
The father’s spoke, the demons dined, the sun is coming you’ve been left behind,
you’ve been left behind, you’ve been left behind…
