Oh Night Divine!

Okay folks… I know it’s not Christmas any more, but I recently started chatting with my old online friend Uncle Bob again, and I was looking through his last few blog entries and came across this:


(or download an mp3.)

I haven’t laughed this hard in a long time. Just when you think it can’t get worse, it does. Several times!

The backstory:

I received a copy of that song at least 2, maybe 3 Christmas seasons ago after hearing it at our youth group meeting.

My friend Chris said that he received the song from the good folks at CIY (Christ In Youth). CIY is an organization that puts on huge youth conferences on college campuses, usually over the summer.

Chris is on one of their leadership committees and the story goes that that recording was circulated amongst the committee after it had been submitted as an audition tape. CIY typically has singing or talent night (at least I remember they used to) and this recording is a serious audition tape. No joke. It’s serious.

I play that song every year for my high school students to lighten them up before they take their Fall semester exams. I have heard that mp3 circulate from time to time, most notably hearing it on NPR’s Annoying Music Minute a couple of years ago. Now it is truly famous, thanks Steve.
