SONG OF THE DAY (SUNDAY FUNDAY): Amy Grant – Baby Baby (Dave Aude Remix)
Just as last Sunday when I looked to Boy George for spiritual inspiration, today let’s go to the “Queen of Christian Pop” Amy Grant. With songs like “House of Love,” “Every Heartbeat,” and “Lucky One,” she is one of the few artists from the Christian music world that crossed over to pop. Previewing her forthcoming album of club remixes, a devout fan captured a clip of Dave Aude’s remix of Amy’s biggest pop hit “Baby Baby” and it is sure to please. Transforming the sugary pop confection to a big room high energy club track was obviously not an easy task, and just as he did with Tammy Wynette’s “Stand By Your Man,” Dave has again shown that he can literally make almost any kind of music work flawlessly in a club context. Please note that the video is a low quality sound recording filmed at the gay bar Beatbox in San Francisco, so if you are easily offended by homosexual imagery then you might just have to wait until this (and the rest of the remix album) is released this fall.
