The best thing I’ve seen all year

Oh my dear friends. I am about to share something with you that will make your day. It might even make your week. Heck, IT COULD VERY WELL MAKE YOUR YEAR!

I stumbled across this while working on another post and it was so good I decided it deserved a post of its own. There is no reason to hide this glory under a bushel basket. No reason at all. So I halted what I was working on and started a new post just for all of you.

Folks, this song runs through my head all. the. time. Every time I’m scared, I start humming this. I listened to this cassette tape endlessly as a kid. I’d put it in my neon pink and green boom box and jam out and this song was one of my favorites.

Like an old friend or a warm, fuzzy blanket it washes away fear. This song has saved me over the years and now? NOW I HAVE THIS!

I feel like I found a gold nugget.

Watch it…watch it until the very end.

You. Are. Welcome.

Let’s all join together in a moment of reverent silence shall we?

Aren’t you glad you stopped by today? Does anybody else sing this song when they’re scared? Has anybody else heard this song?!

For one more piece of awesome, listen to this. There’s no video but this was my other favorite song on that cassette. You know you all wish you had been as cool as me…

  1. wow. don’t even know what to say. a tad creepy at times, despite the fact that she was it in the 80s. “My Father’s Eyes” anyone?

    • “My Father’s Eyes.” I may…or may not…have sung that as a solo. More than once.

      I will neither confirm nor deny.

      But yes – totally creepy and completely hilarious all at once.

  2. I had those jeans 😮

  3. LOL. We were so young then. Which makes us… so old now. Darn it.

    I love this song! It made me feel more brave as a kid, and I still sing it now too. You were right. This just made my day.

    • Why with the floating hands and the feet and what was the guy behind the glass doing? Was he an angel or a guy drowning? It was all so terrible and fanstastic all at once. THIS is why the internet rules! Because that video can now NEVER die! 🙂

  5. How ironic; Amy Grant was a client when she just broke out and I set up her first solo owned studio for her in Nashville. I love her music. Good choice as usual Kelli.

    • Ha! Of course you did. 🙂 I seriously could not have listened to that first album of hers more when I was a kid.

  6. Sean Cooper says:

    You deserve an award. I muted the Youtube video and played the Giggle song over it… I was a little scared on a few parts so I giggled my way through it.

  7. I just want to know who thought all that was a good idea for a video? It’s more than a tad creepy. ha! I really liked her music back then, but she’s always been just a little off to me. I went to Women of Faith this past August and she was in the line up. There is just something about here that is just weird.

    • Oh heavens, that video is wrong on a hundred different levels but don’t you know they thought it was awesome? That was cutting edge stuff back then! 🙂

  8. Girl, I recently bought Sing Your Praise to the Lord off iTunes and talk about a song you can JAM to! Aw yeah! I air piano and air drum like nobody.

    And I know all the words to Giggle.

    And Fat Baby (wah wah wah….)

    he wants his bottle and he don’t mean may-be…

  9. Oh. My. That is just plain awkward with a capital OMG.

    But I loved that whole album, too.

  10. Candy Martin says:

    I agree with creepy! But I love the song. You loved to sing that. And you really put your heart, and soul into singing My Fathers Eyes! I may have that on video somewhere.

  11. the man. in the tux. in the water.

    enough said.

  12. YES! Thank you for sharing this – old school Amy Grant is the best! Though I’m really glad I never saw this video as a young child – I might have totally freaked out. Not long ago I sang “Fat Baby” in its entirety at the dinner table, and Dan just stared at me, aghast (he hadn’t heard that one before).
    Now I want to spend the rest of the afternoon on YouTube watching old Amy Grant videos… thanks, Kelli…

  13. First, Amy Grant was my very first ever concert!! I think I was maybe 10 years old. Second, I’m new(ish) to blogging and found your posts very helpful and informative. Third, I can’t wait to read more. Have a great weekend!!
