Dem Social Media Bones
Dem Bones or Dem Dry Bones is a famous spiritual poem and song, sometimes used in Bible school and pre-school to help children learn basic anatomy. The melody has been credited to American educator and early civil rights activist James Weldon Johnson and the lyrics to Dem Bones are based on the Book of Ezekiel.
Over the years, the song has been covered by The Delta Rhythm Boys, Shirley Caesar and many other artists. And also last year by award-winning London-based ad agency Lean Mean Fighting Machine, founded in 2004 by 4 former Tribal DDB executives, who launched an alternative ‘social media flavoured’ version titled “Dem Phones” as 2007 Christmas card for self-promotion and recruitment.
