YP 8 `Y88 `Y88P `Y8P' 8 Yb `Y88P YP 8 `Y88P YP YP Y88P The following 3 videos are representative of Amy's style in the pre-Unguarded era. They are included for reasons of brevity and completeness. It's Not a Song (as reviewed by J.P. Blackwood) Amy sits in her room saddened, trying to write a song. Her paper flies out the window through the streets to a nursing home. Amy follows it, sings to the residents and they cheer up and do a broadway type dance number Angels (as reviewed by J.P. Blackwood) Scenes switch between Amy teaching Sunday school, Paul released from jail and some abstract shots of Amy escaping a car crash and being haunted by some kind of ghost hands. Don't Run Away (reviewed by Pradeep) The video starts off with Amy on stage wearing a trenchcoat and hat as the crew is setting up. As the setup nears completion, she removes her coat and hat (shaking her hair free from it's confines). Michael W. Smith is playing keyboard. The band seems to be having a great time overall, singing to the crowd of people in the auditorium. This video provides a very sharp contrast between the Amy and Michael of yesteryear with the same Amy and Michael of only a few years later. (both had an appearance/outfit that would no doubt make them cringe today, but in fact this simplicity was very prevalent in the videos of many artists at that time.) The following are descriptions/reviews of Amy's videos from the Unguarded (1985) album and later. Amy undergoes an *incredible* change in image, style, and confidence from the videos mentioned above to those below. ;-) Wise Up (reviewed by Pradeep) This is a live video shot in Pittsburg. Amy is wearing her trademark spotted leopard skin jacket (as appears on the cover of the Unguarded album). Amy is noticeably very energetic and it is exciting to see her move in synch with the music. This is my favourite live video of her. Find a Way (reviewed by Pradeep) Amy's outfits alternate between her leopard skin jacket with flashy dress shirt and cummerbund, to a crimson dress. The video shifts several times from indoors where an argument between a man & a woman is taking place, to outside where Amy is standing atop a brick building. Several outdoor scenes take place near a water setting. Eventually the couple reconcile their differences and Amy twirls her jacket in the air producing a rainbow pattern. The video ends with Amy in casual white top and rolled-up pants; an incredible wave rises above and behind her, and a beautiful rainbow appears. Next Time I Fall (reviewed by Pradeep) This video was done in conjunction with another A&M superstar, Peter Cetera. It takes place in a room with very high windows. A dance troupe is performing among the singers. Although Amy has a rather small singing role in this duet, her performance more than makes up for it. She is wearing a jean jacket, a white shirt, blue jeans and cowboy boots. All in all she looks really good. :) I am told by J.P. Blackwood that Peter and Amy were photo- graphed at different locations (and/or times) for this video, and this explains why you don't see them in the same scene. This video was responsible for introducing much of the pre-HIM public to Amy. Stay for Awhile (reviewed/detailed by Marjorie Soifer) This video opens with a man horseback-riding into the camera. Amy's face appears through this--superimposed on the screen through the background, as the lyrics begin. The scenes cuts to Amy laughing, maybe with friends, maybe with the guy, maybe in the present, maybe in the past (left for personal interpretation). Meanwhile the screen splits vertically and shows the man riding the horse again. Then Amy is seen sitting in a chair, her head on her hands as though she is reminiscing/thinking. The video cuts to Amy with the man and the horse walking out the the center of a field. Only after a moment, the video returns to Amy alone in the chair. The scene continues to periodically shift from Amy alone in a house, to Amy with the man in the field. In the field, Amy is seen working out the horse while the man watches, Amy watching while the man works out the horse (both are holding the horse by some kind of reign while the horse moves in a circle), both Amy and the man riding the horse, and Amy running in a zig-zag fashion though the field while the man follows her pattern on the horse. In the house Amy is seen sitting on the chair or on the windowsill. Basically, Amy moves throughout this one room, reminiscing. It is as though she is saying goodbye to the memories as she packs up and moves out. These single scenes of Amy alone are interspersed with the scenes from the field. In the video, Amy wears a black leather jacket, white t-shirt, jeans, and boots. In the house she wears a denim shirt, black leggings, and sneakers. Her hair is wavy (pre-children, hence, pre-perm). The scenes in the field have an earthy color tone, the scenes in the house have a blue overtone, and the "other" scenes (Amy innocently flirting with the man) have a little color but are primarily black and white. The video ends with Amy leaving the house with a packed suitcase and a scene of Amy and the man riding on the horse across the screen. The video is really simple. Amy conveys the sense of "time gone by" really well. It took me 4 years to get my hands on a copy of this video. There is nothing spectacular about it but it was still definitely worth the wait! Lead Me On (reviewed by Pradeep) This is arguably the most moving and scenic of Amy's videos. It takes place near a very beautiful set of waterfalls, amidst rugged 'bitter cold' terrain. Amy is wearing a pair of loose fitting jeans, a dark sleeveless tank-top, and a pair of earrings. The earrings, however, are purposefully different from each other, indicative of the new 'hip' Amy. Amy radiates her inner and outer beauty throughout most of the video. Note: This video was released commercially on a tape with several other artists, "VH-7". Baby Baby (reviewed by Pradeep) This video teams Amy with her hunky friend, Jme Stein. Amy originally wanted to do this video with babies dancing around in diapers, but one of her nephews thought this would be lame. Baby Baby is the first of a series of videos that she did for the HIM album. Almost all share a common thread of rapidly switching from scene to scene, forcing you to either see parts in slow-motion or watch the video many times to catch all the subtle details. Most of the video shows Amy and her male-friend having fun at an amusement park. As the video progresses, they are trying to out-do each other's silliness. During much of the video, Amy is wearing a black outfit complete with a black bowler's hat. She looks particularly striking in the beginning when she is wearing her Mexican outfit (complete with white shirt, hat, bolero, black skirt, and black boots). Good For Me (reviewed by Pradeep) (hunky version) The guy from Baby Baby is back for another fun-filled video with Amy. The setting takes place near a waterpark. Indeed, Amy can be seen wearing full scuba gear and beach attire. If you liked Baby Baby, this video is not to be missed. According to Rodney, this version is the one Amy prefers. She made it after realizing the other version about two childhood friends did not come out as she originally intended. (girlfriend version) This, IMHO, is the better of the two versions. In the beginning, Amy and her girlfriend are shown running to a barn carrying a chest of clothes between them. The adventurous girlfriend is seen holding different items of lingerie in front of both herself and Amy (much to poor Amy's shock) to test how it looks. Amy is wearing about 5 different outfits in all. In the classroom setting, she is wearing a black top and black short-shorts (I mistook it initially for a black mini-dress). Several times during the video, the camera does a close-up of her face while she is wearing this black outfit. I can't describe it, but I have never seen her looking more stunning and beautiful than in those close-ups. Her facial features in these close-ups are well set off against the bright backlighting. Occasionally, we are presented with scenes of the "younger" Amy and her girlfriend in class and in a restaurant meeting boys. At the end, Amy is wearing a grey mini-sundress. She sits atop the hood of a fire engine, next to her girlfriend. They are flirting with (and being serenaded by) a group of dancing firefighters who eventually soak them with a fire hose. Warning: This version shows scenes of a controversial nature, and thus may not be suitable for all Amy fans. Viewer discretion is advised. (Gee, I'm making this sound like an R-rated Madonna flick.) :) Every Heartbeat (reviewed by Pradeep) The settings are a laundromat and an auto-repair shop. Amy starts off by blowing gum bubbles. She is seen wearing several outfits. The most notable is a white baby-doll style polka-dot mini-dress in a polka-dot room (and she sometimes holds a cute puppy which needless to say is also covered with polka-dots). One other side-scene worth mentioning shows Amy striking poses in a sophisticated pair of sunglasses, gloves, and a hat. In the main setting of the laundromat, a guy and a girl are doing laundry (what else?), but soon are attracted to each other. Their shyness prevents them from meeting initially. In fact, they are both seen reading the same shyness self-help book (which each thankfully remembered to bring along). Finally, he takes off his outer shirt, and she teases him by unbuttoning hers (I don't see the point of this), and they have a laundry war by tossing clothes at each other from all the dryers (which conveniently were not even running). Then they become affectionate (of course). In the auto-shop, a guy comes to check on his car, when all of a sudden a girl pops out from under. They seem to hit it off without a hitch (no grease wars!). That's What Love is For (as reviewed by Ho) Very poetic setting, on a rocky but flat field. Amy wears a red, LONG cloak as she sings to a couple. The male is wearing big white pants, no shirt and the female is seen in a white sweater. There are scenes with them apart but slowly they drift back together as they listen to Amy and a guy dressed in black, playing the guitar he picked from the ground. There are some beautiful shots of Amy under a huge rock. Also shown are beige monochromatic shots of Amy in a white dress in some kind of volcano opening...very beautiful and poetic. Then there are bad shots of Amy with VERY curly hair in white, kinda like a sailor's outfit. She begins to cry in these shots but her hair is...blah! At the end she is standing in front of a mountain that has the words LOVE on it, like Hollywood in California and the couple is behind her, clinging to each other (a decent shot). Overall, I love the imagery but some shots could have been better...there is one strange shot of Amy as her dress flows in the wind and she does some strange, strange dance!!! Note: You might want to hold off showing this video to friends that you want to introduce to Amy. Wait 'til they develop a greater appreciation of her earlier music first. -Ed I Will Remember You [A MUST SEE VIDEO! IT'LL BLOW YOU AWAY!!!] [There is not a single Amy video that I can even begin to compare this work of art with. In fact, I don't know of any secular videos I can compare with either (the only one that comes to mind for artistic appeal is a-ha's 'Take on Me'). In terms of artistic appeal, special effects, etc, it's in a class above the rest (with only the aforementioned a-ha video, IMHO). This is one video where the excitement and awe of seeing it in reality actually exceeds the expectation built up for it. Since this video was not released commercially, I would not know where one would go to obtain this video. (Try and beg or borrow it from a friend or request your local music video station to play it. It'll be worth the effort! -Pradeep)] Because of the sheer scope of this video (most expensive to film at US$250,000), I present a very detailed description: (kudos to Marjorie Soifer for this; some editing by me) The video begins with the ticking of a metronome and a film reel with Amy in the background, sitting. Several scenes are shown within moving photographs: a soldier getting ready to go off to war...his family walks out to the front yard to embrace him and say goodbye; a couple holding hands, walking; Amy by the beach; a swimmer swimming. All of the scenes shown are interspersed together throughout the video. The key is that each photograph tells a story. The video moves from right to left like a film reel, with Amy shown periodically. The metronome, signifying passing of time, is shown ticking between photos; as the scenes continue, Amy is shown in a heart-shaped still. The photo goes back to the teen couple--the girl holds flowers behind her back admires the man working. Amy is seen interspersed between frames. The girl comes to a car and stares through the window into the camera but really through the other side of the car to the man. The flowers have been left on the wheel of the car. The swimmer is seen being presented with an award. Amy sits and watches this presentation on the film reel shown at the beginning of the video. The whole sense of the video changes at this point. The song, I think, changes key, too. There are no more photograph-action images. Instead, the clips look like they are taken from a movie. The young couple are seen driving to a pasture, hugging and kissing -- this is very tactful. Amy is seen in another clip staring out through a fire (perhaps on a beach). Soldiers are seen dodging gunfight. Then the soldier gets hit and falls to the ground while a fellow soldier comes to his rescue. Soon the video changes back to the book format and to picture frames. The video again moves from right to left. The older couple, mentioned before, are now rowing a boat in a river. Another couple is seen walking toward a train. The man says goodbye to the woman as she boards the train. Amy's face is seen periodically in a picture in the book. The mother of the soldier receives a letter in her mailbox regarding her son. The soldier's friend is seen walking next to an American flag. Flowers are seen in the middle of a book. The mother is shown embracing her husband, crying. The young couple are seen kissing...the man who said goodbye to the woman boarding the train is waving his hat as the train departs. The swimmer is seen sitting at the edge of the pool. Amy comes in from the background of the picture. This gives a more-or-less complete account of what is shown. Unfortunately, much of the symbolism is left out during the description. In essence, the theme is the passage of time. The couples shown seem to represent young love versus romantic love. Also shown is happiness versus sadness; hard times versus carefree times. Amy is not shown for any length of time. She is wearing an overly large white blouse, jeans and of course, boots. Many times she is in the shadows. She was 3 months pregnant with Sarah Canon when this video was shot and she was beginning to show. The video was shot in Spain. It is hard to recreate the special effects. The colors used are very powerful. The war scenes are shown in black and white. The scenes of the young couple in the countryside use a lot of earth tones: beige, yellow, etc. The swimmer is always seen around a lot of blue: the pool when swimming and the sky when receiving the award. All in all, A MUST SEE. The video cannot be bought so try to get your cable music operator to play it. Grown-Up Christmas List (as reviewed by Rodney and Pradeep) Amy is shown in a very pretty, nicely decorated living room, lighting candles on the tree. She looks in on her "daughter" who is asleep in bed holding a stuffed Santa. The camera pans over cute kids (of all varieties) holding candles. Matt, Amy's oldest, is in the video. Amy had asked him if he would play her child in the video, but he insisted on being in a scene with fire in it; thus he got to hold a candle along with the other kids. [Amy looks especially radiant, glowing, stunning, etc. -Ed] The Lucky One (as reviewed by J.P. Blackwood) It is set in a Latin-American villiage by a beach, and has a definite world-music atmosphere, the video more than the song. Amy in a sleeveless vest cavorts with children near a Hotel de Bueno Dulce (Hotel of good sweetness??) and in the streets of a village and a beach. Sweetness is definitely the theme. We see ice cream of all flavors and watermelons etc... The video is filmed in letterbox format. Village musicians occasionally provide some music. The video gives a great feel for the Latin village's culture. Say You'll Be Mine (as previewed by Lori McAlister) Very colorful and clever. Has Amy as "an ant at a picnic" (actually, we see her as several ants before it's done!) Amy is wearing baggy blue jeans, a wide black belt and a long-sleeved oxford shirt. She is standing amid blades of grass, dwarfed by bright-hue, computer-generated butterflies, singing away as we see a young couple getting out of a late 60's convertible and unloading a picnic basket and blanket. It's really a lot of fun and almost funny in parts, with Amy almost getting stepped on by the lovebirds at one point! They managed to capture Amy in a scene with a real lady bug climbing a nearby blade of grass. It's almost like she's singing into the couple's ears what each one would want the other to think, but are too shy to say so. My personal tastes run ULTRA-CONSERVATIVE on things like this. (Amy and I had some serious conversations when the HIM videos began to come out...) There are only two very brief cuts that make me somewhat uncomfortable: First, I want to recommend a sports bra for the young lady if she's going to be running across meadows... and at one point, the couple fall into a heap upon the ground and begin some rather serious kissing and carressing. (But conspicuous lack of full body contact, whew!) Fortunately, this is cut short and quickly returns to more of what I would call more appropriate public displays of affection. Let me reiterate - this is my own humble, personal and conservative impression. In the end, I really like it and the angle they've taken on representing the song visually. House of Love (Original) (as previewed by Lori McAlister) Filmed entirely in black and white. Rather artsy looking, but also rather morose as neither Amy nor Vince Gill even smile. In fact, they tend to look more like they are miserable (perhaps empathizing with the poor abandoned partner, but I thought this was to be an encouragement...) Begins in an open field with shots of an old iron bed made up with flowers (I believe). Then you see a Victorian "doll house" in the field with the bed. Amy and Vince are both dressed very conservatively, almost "old fashioned" or "Amish" as Amy described it. By the chorus, you see both Amy and Vince singing in, around and on a full blown Victorian house. (The doll house is an exact replica which Amy tried to buy after the shoot, but they wouldn't sell it to her...) While you do see Amy and Vince in many scenes together, they never make eye-contact or even acknowledge the other's presence. As it went on, I kept hoping for maybe some more hope or happiness expressed, either in expression or symbol, but it never came. So it left me with a rather odd feeling... But the video itself is very well done and certainly nothing to get worried about from the "appropriate/inappropriate" standpoint. (Speechless version) (reviewed by Pradeep) A second version was made for the romantic comedy, 'Speechless', starring Geena Davis and Michael Keeton. The video is more upbeat than the original and shows Amy and Vince Gill singing at a studio, and interspersed with scenes from the movie. Some of the movie scenes were questionable, however, and Amy mentioned she wasn't aware of them. All in all, the singing parts were well shot. (third version!) (reviewed by Pradeep) This is the same video used for the Speechless version, the exception being there are no Speechless scenes in it. So, 100% pure Amy and Vince! :) Again, well photographed! Big Yellow Taxi (as previewed by Lori McAlister) I love it! Amy said it is her favorite of the videos she's made to date. I first watched it with two other co-workers. Neither of them liked it - so, to each his own! When I brought it home, my 2 1/2 year old said, "Again!" five times before I could put anything else on! Amy was having a bad hair day (she had just gotten a perm and it was a little out-of-control). She said she didn't care what her hair looked like - the video is still interesting. (That's our Amy!) As she said, it all looks "organic", but it's all computer generated. The Director is Michael Geoghegan "Why Not Films" The opening shot looks like the stage of an old theatre, red curtains drawn, single spotlight in the center. Open curtains to see Amy standing in a storeroom...wood plank floor and brick walls. Amy is strumming a simple acoustic guitar with a pick. She is wearing black suede boots, black leggings, a short black jacket, striped vest and white tee. She recorded her part walking on a conveyor belt, thus there is a sense of pretty much constant motion once she begins to move... The walls collapse and pull away to find Amy walking, strumming, and singing across a desert landscape. We even see tight shots of her feet leaving footprints in the virtual sand! Suddenly the desert is paved with blacktop and Amy continues down the center line. Desert is replaced with lots of flashing neon signs as she releases the guitar to fly straight up and flips the pick over her shoulder. Three girls ("mall babes") cross the road in front of her on their way to the "boutique". At one point, Amy ducks to avoid being struck by a flying neon sign. Pavement turns into a trail of fall leaves. Signs give way to bare ground and odd, half-dead looking trees that move in from each side as she goes. She passes between two security guards, one of whom we see a little later chasing after paper money that is being blown about by the wind. Leaves give way to rocks and barren earth, very "post nuclear blast" looking with an angry red/orange/gunmetal sky and even sicker looking trees being sprayed with an iridescent green mist by people in radiation suits. The trees are in constant rotation. One of them bears a single apple of cantaloupe proportions which Amy takes in her hand only to watch it vaporize. Rocks give way to what looks like a pavement of currency and a city scape in metallic, growing up around her against a bright blue sky. The guitar drops back into her hands and again she walks and strums through the city. Walking through a "doorway" in the city scene, she is now in an old, dark apartment hallway. The floor is wood, but there seems to be a trail of foil down the middle. She stops in the hall to sing of hearing the screen door slam. She turns suddenly to see the door behind her swing shut. She then turns back toward the camera and runs to the other end of the hall where the taxi is taking off in a very "elastic" fashion. She continues running and is now on a pathway of gears on a dark, shiny sea where a variety of automobiles are half-submerged, end up in the "ocean". Gears give way to sheaves of wheat making a path down the middle of an expansive wheat field. The very blue sky with cotton candy clouds returns and Amy is walking again instead of running. Wheat gives way to sand and we are back in the desert then the walls and floor of the storeroom suddenly slip back into place. The guitar drops one last time and we are back where we began. Amy strums the final chord and turns around as the curtains close and we see the opening scene again. Her expression is bright and positive throughout, looking appropriately bewildered when singing about the $25 admission charge to the tree museum. It reminds me a bit of Peter Gabriel's "Sledge Hammer" video, but not as elaborate or outrageous. The Things We Do For Love (open to review) Yes, believe it or not, this _is_ Amy, sporting a new hairdo! Once again, I haven't seen this, so please send me your reviews. :) The reviews are sketchy at best, and all opinions are in no means accurate. Overall, I feel the intended purpose of these video reviews is to let people know of the existence and contents of videos they may not have seen or even knew existed. The following are reviews/descriptions of feature length videos: Age to Age Concert Video (reviewed by Carrie M. Pirmann); 83 minutes The concert opened with Amy's three back-up singers (Donna McElroy, Kim Fleming and Mark Baldwin) singing the chorus of "I Have Decided" a capella. Amy came on stage and joined them for the rest on the song to begin the show. She was wearing red pants and a red shirt with a black blazer and noticeably more makeup than she does now. Although the back-up singers were a little overpowering at times, both the sound and cinematography were excellent throughout the show. Amy continued her set with "Old Man's Rubble," and "In a Little While," which she sounded great on. Despite the fact that she was not dancing up on stage like she does in her current shows, she still sounded great. The lack of movement on stage might have been due to the fact that she was playing on a rather small and cramped stage. Amy then took out her guitar (the only time she played the entire night) and strummed along with an excellent live version of "My Father's Eyes." She then got into a rousing version of "Faith Walkin' People" before performing a masterful version of "El Shaddai." Accompanied only by Michael W. Smith on piano, Amy translated the Hebrew lyrics of "El Shaddai" during the song and received her biggest applause of the night at the conclusion of this piece. She finished the first half of the show with an extended chorus of "How Majestic is Your Name" and "Fat Baby," during which she and the back-ups did a cute little dance number. She then introduced Gary Chapman as the intermission act while she and the band took a break. Gary come on and entertained the crowd with some of his humor before breaking into his set. The first song he sang was "Treasure," which received so much applause that he had to quiet the audience down before starting the next song. The band returned and Gary started up what he called a "rowdy" song, "I'm Yours Lord." He followed this song with "In His Hand." Gary then put his guitar down and joined MWS on keyboards for an emotional version of "Finally." For each of his songs, Gary thrilled the crowd and received more applause than Amy ever did during the show. Amy then returned to the stage (wearing the hideous red leather pants / black and white striped shirt outfit from the "Don't Run Away" video) to sing a duet with Gary, "No Matter Where Time Takes Us." This was the first time I heard Amy and Gary sing together and they sounded incredible. After finishing the duet, Amy talked to the crowd for about ten minutes. The gist of her speech was basically "knowledge without love means nothing" and she also stated that "if Jesus doesn't make a difference in the little mundane things (in life), I pray that he's made a difference at all." She then launched in to a great version of "Arms of Love," followed by a new song, "Where Do You Hide Your Heart." Amy finished by singing "Don't Run Away" before concluding with a high energy version of "Too Late." Amy then abruptly ran off stage. The crowd gave her a hearty round of applause before the band broke into a 3 minute instrumental intro to "Sing Your Praise to the Lord." Amy returned for her encore, "Sing Your Praise to the Lord," with some lyrics from "I Have Decided" interspersed throughout. The show concluded with "Friends," and the entire band (MWS, Gary, Keith Edwards, Reed Alvin, Duncan Mullins and James Holihan) holding hands across the stage. Overall, the show was quite good, with the highlight for me being Gary's set. For die-hard Amy fans, the video of this show is definitely a must-see and a bonus to add to your Amy collection. Heart in Motion Concert Special (reviewd by Carrie M. Pirmann); 1 hour (from "Videosyncrasy" on Family Channel, 1991) This show was hosted by Jimmy Hodson and featured some Amy videos as well as a few numbers from her HIM concert in Minneapolis. After a brief introduction by Hodson, Amy's video for "Every Heartbeat" was played. At the conclusion of the video, the show moves to Amy and Jimmy in a backstage locker room talking. Pieces of their interview were nicely pieced in throughout the remainder of the show, with Amy often providing a well-suited intro to a particular song or video. Some of the topics which Jimmy and Amy discussed included the experience of being on the road; the kids; the relationship Amy and her family have; her "cross-over" from Christian music to pop music ("I think it was time for me to do something besides strictly Christian music, but that was not a faith issue."); and suicide. The program then moves to the opening number for Amy's show that night. Dressed in red stretch pants and a multi-colored striped jacket, Amy looked great as she took the stage singing "Fight" from her "unguarded" album. The audience was very receptive of her throughout the concert. She sang the second verse of "Fight" while lying on the stage and was continually dancing on the stage throughout the show. Both the sound and cinematography were incredible. The video for "Baby Baby" was then shown, with Amy providing some insight into the making of the video. Amy then gave the following monologue (during the interview) which served as a perfect intro to a live performance of "That's What Love is For." My parents, my mother especially, was a bridge builder when it came to conversation. And I think she learned her lesson through three older sisters. I think a lot of times parents get upset because their children don't talk to them, usually about subjects that are really difficult to talk about. And I think it's weird to presume that a child would be the one to make the first move. I remember, oh, a lot of stories. I remember being in like seventh grade, my mother talking to me about different friends of mine that were starting to smoke pot. In a very unaggressive way she was talking to me about it. And it led to a great discussion. And she didn't come down hard on me, and as the situation turned out I chose not to go with that group. When I was in college, one time I was really sick. I was getting ready to go on an overseas trip. And my mother very gently asked me if I were pregnant. And, of course, my first response was 'You know, you don't trust me, and I can't believe you'd even bring this up.' But I wasn't pregnant, and it would have been a miracle had I been. But I thought about it later, after my mother was gone and after I'd blown up at her. I thought, you know, she risked offending me, but what if I had been? What if I was like lying awake at night, terrified because of the kind of family I was reared in, the moral fiber of what I was raised to believe was right, you know, and she just kind of reached through all that and said 'Hey, are you okay?' The scene then shifted to Amy on a mostly darkened stage, dressed in a long white gown, singing "That's What Love is For." She sounded especially great on this piece and she and her back-up singers were in perfect synch. Amy provided another notable anecdote as an intro to the video for "Lead Me On": We'll start a song, maybe that has kind of a deeper message like "Lead Me On" or "All Right," and to look out and see thousands of people with conviction all over their face singing these songs because of what it means to them--you just get this feeling of wow. You know, in one sense it has nothing to do with me. It has to do with how these songs reflect the lives of these people. I'm just singing it. The show concluded with two more live performances by Amy. The first was a peppy version of "Good For Me." The second was Amy's final piece in the concert, a haunting, emotional and beautiful version of "I Will Remember You." This program is by far the best for-TV special of Amy's that I have seen. Her maturity as a singer is shown throughout as she performs live and talks with the host about a variety of topics. A definite must-see for any Amy fan, if you can get your hands on a copy! Building the House of Love (reviewed by Carrie M. Pirmann); 84 minutes This is, in my opinion, the best Amy video ever made. It opens perfectly with shots of Riverstone farm and the music to "Oh How the Years Go By" playing in the background. What unfolds next is a morning at the Chapman house, with Amy bringing little Sarah (who was at the time about a year old) down the stairs and making breakfast. From there, the video moves to the Bennett House (recording studio) where Amy is recording the song "House of Love" with Keith Thomas. Distributed nicely throughout are scenes of Amy talking about the process of recording an album. More shots of the farm accompanied again by the music from "Oh How the Years Go By" provide a nice segue to shots of Amy celebrating her birthday and Amy and Gary talking about how they fell in love and their relationship. After this, the show returns to the recording studio where work is being done on "Oh How the Years Go By", and during this time Amy explains the chip thing. Christmas time rolls around, and Amy, Sarah, Millie (and Matt was supposed to be there but he wasn't) are shown filming a live feed for Good Morning America. Vince Gill and Amy then team up to complete the process of recording "House of Love." A brief piece of Amy and Matt in New York City taped for Entertainment Tonight is also shown. A concert at the Grande Ole Opry in which Amy performed with Vince Gill and Michael W. Smith is also showcased. The strings which were used in "House of Love" were recorded in Amy's house, and this follow as the next scene. More shots of the farm, along with the kids playing in a field while "Love Has a Hold on Me" plays give the film an intimate quality. Amy then talks about the song "Children of the World" and how much it moves her emotionally. She talks about her kids, and then we see the recording of the adult and children's choruses used in the song. Amy hosted a group of country music stars to record "Amazing Grace" for the movie Maverick, and the recording of the song, as well as the video, are shown. The whole production took place at the farm. As the show winds down, we see the kids playing in the studio while Amy and Michael Omartian work on the recording of "Helping Hand". The film concludes with Amy discussing how the album came to be named House of Love, and with shots from the filming of the video for the song "House of Love." Three videos, "Lucky One", "House of Love" and "Say You'll Be Mine" are shown in their entirety at the conclusion of the film. The "Building the House of Love" video offers a unique look at Amy's life inside and outside of recording. My guess is that this is as close a look at her life as we will likely get for a long time. A must see! =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= 88888 8 .d88b 8 8 w w 8 8d8b. .d88b 8P .d8b. 8 8 .d88b .d8b w8ww w .d8b. 8d8b. 8 8P Y8 8.dP' 8b 8' .8 8 8 8.dP' 8 8 8 8' .8 8P Y8 8 8 8 `Y88P `Y88P `Y8P' 8 8 `Y88P `Y8P Y8P 8 `Y8P' 8 8 of David Yoshihara (11/24/92) updated by Jack Liu, Sophia Hedberg, Pradeep Bhatia (12/30/94) updated by Marjorie Soifer (5/01/96) updated by Julie McCarrier (6/01/97) This is a major section of the FAQ.

Through the years, Amy Grant had shown her talent with popular music through hit single releases, many of them though are without an incident. A&M started to promote Amy Grant's album "Unguarded" to the secular world in 1985. When "Find A Way" made its way to top 30 on the pop chart, There was some controversy over this even though the song contains Christian content. A year later, the huge success of her duet "The Next Time I Fall" with Peter Cetera sparked even more fury among some people. And when the first single "Baby Baby" from "Heart in Motion" came out with a bang in 1991, it raised a few eyebrows as well. Many Christian radio stations chose not to play it. KLTY in Dallas (under Jon Rivers) was one of the few stations that played "Baby Baby" despite some angry phone calls and letters of complaint from its listeners. But through it all, Amy Grant has been successful in keeping most of her Christian fans while broadening her audience in the secular world. All 5 singles off the "Heart in Motion" album are still played on the radio today. And now with "House of Love", Amy, at the age of 34, is trying to repeat some of the single success of "Heart in Motion" (although she doesn't feel under any pressure if they don't. -Ed) Xiaoqin xiaoqin@squid.umd.edu -------------------------------------------------------------------------- Following contains the information of Amy's single releases since 1985 from Billboard Magazine.
