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!

  This  is a major section of the FAQ. My original intent for including it
  was to give everyone a taste of what is available in the way of CD's,
  vinyl, cassette, singles, videos, bootlegs, articles, interviews, posters,
  etc.  I have been fortunate to receive help in updating this for the
  present.

    A Preface to Amy's achievements on Billboard Top Singles chart:

   Amy Grant is undoubtedly the most important and popular contemporary
Christian music artist of 1980s, winning 5 Grammys and 19 Dove awards from
1982 to 1989.

   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)
