  1. Lori is right! I just noticed gray hairs in Danny’s beard (in the SpongBob video). He is way too young to be getting gray. I have less gray in my hair and I’m way older. And I don’t color! But alas, as Taylor Hicks could tell us, gray doesn’t always come with age.


  2. Soooo…. I suppose I should freshen up the posts, eh? I know about three new concert dates and we have some nice photos from the VNT tour….


    It’s been a really busy time in my family and at work. But I’m looking forward to a lighter period coming up 🙂


  3. I’ve lost track of what’s been posted, but I see The Comeback entered the Billboard Christian Airplay monitored chart at #36? (80 spins) Also 3 adds each on the Christian Hot AC/CHR airplay chart and Christian AC indicator charts.

    I don’t recall Danny having early results on the Hot AC format with previous songs.


  4. It is nice to see the new adds on sChristian Hot AC/CHR airplay chart and Christian AC indicator charts. I do think Hot AC has been slow to play his music. Maybe this one has the right energy?

    The Christian National Airplay:

    36 – 1 DANNY GOKEY The ComebackBMG 80 +61 0.676 36

    Also good to see the iTune sale prices (and Danny posting the Harry video?) has been increasing the sale of the album and new single.


  5. I would like to see more comments here (other than my own). It is more interesting to drop by to read when there is something to read.

    There is a concert tonight. That should help. There is more excitement on a concert night.

    Could a trio tour be considered? Wondering what’s next.


  6. I am looking at a golf leader board. Patrick Reed is a golfer who played well in the Ryder Cup. Since then he has been in a slump.
    Because he has been in a slump, he is not expected to do well in this week’s tournament–but he has four consecutive birdies and is tied for 1st.
    It would be fun to see a video of all those birdies set to “The Comeback.”
    There is a long way to go. Only nine holes played. Lots of play left. It can’t be a comeback until Sunday is done.
    My point is I would like to see Danny’s song used for events such as this.


  7. I agree that the discussion has been a bit sparse.

    I for one, was busy celebrating all our family birthdays (including my own on Sunday) and Easter and I haven’t been up to date on Danny news or bringing it here.

    I saw that Danny posted the youTube of his Comeback performance on Harry.

    I also think The Comeback will be used in some sport/life application.

    IN my mind I have been working on a new post. I will try to put it onsite by tonight. 🙂

  8. I really don’t have anything to say. I worry. I agree that “The Comeback” would be a great song in many secular settings, but I worry that it won’t be embraced, perhaps because it’s not “Christian enough.” And musically, it’s probably tied with “Symptoms” as my least favorite song on Danny’s album. I understand that the theme of “The Comeback” can be inspiring, and not just for athletes or athletic events. I think someone could do a video with “The Comeback” similar to what the Seattle Children’s Hospital did with Kelly Clarkson’s “Stronger (What Doesn’t Kill You).” If you haven’t seen this video yet, watch it and be prepared to weep!


  9. I often wonder if the little boy featured at :35, 1:33, and 2:32 seconds is still alive. The video is from five years ago, so the boy possibly could be a tween by now.


  10. Does anyone know if the Youtube format (the way the page looks) has changed recently? I am not getting what I usually see.
    It may be I am viewing the page in a different mode. If I am, I don’t know how to undo it or what I did to get there.
    Sometimes I accidentally click something I did not mean to click. Then I wonder why everything is unfamiliar.
    Another thing I have done is hit a wrong key on my keyboard and have a post I was writing disappear. When that happens, I decide fate had made a decision that my post was going to be boring–that it needed to be deleted. 😉


  11. Happy Birthday, Jan! My sister in law celebrated her birthday on Easter. My husband’s, son, and many other family members also celebrate their birthday in April. A very busy month.

    I can see The Comeback being used in many ways. I hope that it is. I think it a very inspirational upbeat song.

    When I see videos above, I’m always hoping for recoveries, and long life.

    I was using YouTube the other day. I don’t use it often, so I’m not sure of a format change. I found short stories about actors from years ago. Their life, accomplishments, and sometimes sad endings. Very interesting.

    Have a wonderful day, everyone.

  12. Admin2,
    ” does the change you see in YT occur if you try a different browser”
    Because of your question, I tried accessing youtube through Firefox. The screen there was back to the familiar one. The familiar one has a smaller video than the new one I encountered today. Suggested videos on the familiar screen show on the side with a picture of each video plus title and artist name.
    Number of plays, likes, and dislikes are below the video that plays with comments below all that.
    The new format I got today had a larger video with an automatic playlist (which I could turn off). Almost everything (but not all) below it came from the artist in the video playing. There were lots more words. I don’t remember if there were pictures for related videos. Comments were far below–under all the mentions of other videos.
    I have been using Google Chrome. I will probably continue using it even though it is different. I don’t like change, but I will get used to it.
    Thanks for your question. It helped me. I now think there was a change in my browser instead of my clicking something or hitting a wrong key inadvertently. Maybe. So I will accept the change.
    I enjoy the feeling of acceptance (even when it is something little like this).


  13. Lurker, i don’t know if clearing your browser cache in Chrome would help your issue but it’s one of those things that doesn’t hurt to try if you see a glitch or weird behavior that seems to be browser-sensitive. I’ve noticed some issues also can appear if the browser screen is sized a certain way. Expanding it to full-size has helped me in a few cases.

    I have seen some variations in how YT video pages load. Some may be configurations of a particular user or for a particular video set by its publisher; but others, idk.


  14. Wow, Admin2! The “clearing your browser cache in Chrome” worked. My familiar youtube screen is back. Thank you! 🙂


  15. How fun to check in and watch a new “Danny” video. Of course, he sounded great, and looked very handsome. 😉

    Thank you, Jan.
