Missionaries singing for us!

Sunday the Missionaries came over! They sang us a song! It was SO GOOD! We were so impressed. I am sad I didn't get the whole thing on tape but at least I got the last part of the song. How wonderful to have such great young men spreading the gospel!

Favorite Mormon Ads

This is my absolute favorite mormon ad ever!




Another good one....


Primary songs with a twist



I loved John Bytheway when I was a teen. I remember hearing him speak and litterally be crying because I was laughing so hard. I always walked away trying to be better.

Laugh at Comedy Barn



So funny!

Liberace on Smothers Brothers



Liberace has to be one of the most talented pianists ever. (Plus a snappy dresser) He makes it look soooo easy! It is kind of long. The best one is the last one (starts around 1:30). If you don't have much time at least make sure to check out around 7:15....

Arlo Guthrie - Motorcycle Song



So Funny! Love this song, and the accompanying story of the pickle...

Arlo Guthrie - Motorcycle Song

Underground



Wow! That is one funky music video. Very 80s. I have to say though that I loved the show when I was little and I love it still. Truly a classic. David Bowie always was such a chameleon!

Move it Move it



The other day I was in Walmart with Jackson and he saw a video game for Madigascar. He has never actually seen the show but we have shown him the music video on youtube. He got really excited, "Look Mom! It's Move it Move it!" Then he burst into song at the top of his lungs "You got to move it move it, You've got to move it move it."

First Presidency Song



Having a hard time remembering the Prophet and apostles? This should help. :-)

A note from the people who wrote the song.

"We also have songs for every scripture mastery verse for all four years of seminary. You can find them on lds.about.com then search "sons of ammon". We are not trying to be 'Superman' by witholding our names. We just don't want credit (or blame for that matter) We are just happy that others are benefitting from some talent we have been given."

The Groovaloos

THE GROOVALOOS - SuperStars of Dance - USA Team - 1st Performance



THE GROOVALOOS - SuperStars of Dance - USA team - 2nd Performance



Superstars of Dance Team USA! What a fabulous perfomance. The highlight of the evening in my opinion. I don't know how many of you have seen superstars of dance. You can see all of the episodes on Hulu. It is real fun to see all of the different cultures and styles of dance come together.

As far as the show is concerned I have to say I agree with many of my peers in that the judging dosn't make any sence. First they are like - "Incredible, Amazing, Outstanding, 8" then they are like, "You weren't very good, 8." But all of the judges seem to agree these dances were amazing, incredible, outstanding, 10!

Bugs Bunny - Cotton Eye Joe



SO, Zane and I found this on the internet and we were both laughing so hard. I remember this song from church dances when I was a kid. Fun to dance too. I think Bugs had fun dancing to it too.

A bit of history -

"The precise origins of this song are unclear, although it predates the American Civil War.

Over the years, many different versions of the song have been performed and/or recorded with many different versions of the lyrics (and many without lyrics). Cotton-eyed Joe, on occasion referred to as "the South Texas National Anthem", was played for minstrel-type jigs, and has long been popular as a square dance hoedown and a couple dance polka. During the first half of the twentieth century the song was a widely known folk song all over English-speaking North America. One Discography lists 134 recorded versions released since 1950. In more recent decades, the song has waned in popularity in most regions except some parts of the American South where it is still a popular folk song."

Everytime it Rains


I recently discovered this song. I also had never heard of Charlotte Martin before. It is one of those the more I hear it the more I like it. The first time I heard it I was intrigued and since then my like for the song has only grown. I am excited to see what other stuff she has out there.
