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. 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. 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. 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. This video was responsible for introducing much of the pre-HIM public to Amy. 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. 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! 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". 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. 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.
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. 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?
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! 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 She begins to cry in these shots but her hair is 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 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. 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! Several scenes are shown within moving photographs: a soldier getting ready to go off to war 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. That song went No. The next two singles, "Everywhere I Go" and "Wise Up", continued Grant's newfound mainstream success and were released to both Christian and mainstream pop radio.
In , Grant released her first compilation album, The Collection. In the years since, however, "Sharayah" has not endured as a staple of Grant's catalog and is rarely included in her concert set lists. To date, the song has not been included on any of Amy Grant's official compilation or "best of" collections. It was released as the first single from her Unguarded album.
Pop music is a genre of popular music that originated in its modern form in the United States and United Kingdom during the mids. The terms "popular music" and "pop music" are often used interchangeably, although the former describes all music that is popular and includes many diverse styles.
The Collection is the tenth album by Christian music singer Amy Grant, released in All four of Grant's singles from Unguarded were Top 5 Christian radio hits, with "Sharayah" tied as the second most successful Christian single from the album with Wise Up.
However, the single did not chart on either The Billboard Hot or the mainstream Adult Contemporary chart—the only song released from Unguarded to not crack the mainstream charts. The Adult Contemporary chart is published weekly by Billboard magazine and lists the most popular songs on adult contemporary radio stations in the United States.
The chart is compiled based on airplay data submitted to Billboard by stations that are members of the Adult Contemporary radio panel. The chart debuted in Billboard magazine on July 17, Over the years, the chart has gone under a series of name changes, being called Easy Listening —; — , Middle-Road Singles — , Pop-Standard Singles — , Hot Adult Contemporary Tracks — and Adult Contemporary —present.

Landau, along with fellow session guitarists Dean Parks, Steve Lukather, Michael Thompson and Dann Huff, played on many of the major label releases recorded in Los Angeles from the s—s. My Father's Eyes was a turning point in Grant's career. Heart in Motion is the eighth studio album, and twelfth album by Christian pop singer Amy Grant, released on March 5, It was released as the second single from the Lead Me On album.
Background vocals were provided by herself and her friend, Richard Page, lead singer for Mr. Mister at the time. It was released as the third single from the Heart in Motion album, though it was the second from the album to be released to mainstream pop radio.
After the unexpected major success of Grant's previous single, "Baby Baby," which topped both the United States' Billboard Hot and Adult Contemporary charts, there seemed the question on how to follow it up. An unauthorized reproduction of the album artwork featuring Amy Grant was used for issue No. The remastered edition is labeled with a "Digitally Remastered" logo in the 'gutter' on the CD front. Album — Billboard North America.
