Phil Keaggy Singing "What a Day"

6 Comments

I can't listen to this song without thinking of my mom. This song was one of her favorites. She loved Phil Keaggy. Can't wait for heaven...to see Jesus, "all the holy men I've read about" and my mom. Thanks for sharing the video with me, Justin.

I have his version on vinyl record and always loved it since I was a child when my parents would play it and my mom would be singing while ironing or dusting while my siblings and I would sing along. . .so I totally can relate to you on that. I'm going to watch the video now. It is so wonderful that he still is as amazing as always and his voice hasn't changed like a lot of people's will do as they age. Gotta love that "Christian Hippie" movement!! When your time comes, You can celebrate and learn some new songs that your mom is singing in Heaven now!

I loved this song as a kid. My parents often played this record and Bob Dylan's Christian albums. Me, you and Victoria come from the same Christian sub-culture, apparently. My favorite line: "... and brother Tom without a doubt ..."

Well maybe not the exact same sub-culture. I think I had "kissed dating goodbye" before you wrote the book and I was only homeschooled from 4th through 8th grade.

Phil was saved shortly after his mom died in a car accident. I'm sure he thinks of her every time he sings this song.

I haven't read your blog for a while (your dad doesn't have your mom and I don't have my Chris--life is much busier now), but I just happened to see this post. Wow, I didn't know that was one of your mom's favorites. It's one of mine too. In fact, Phil Keaggy was the first Christian artist I really listened to as a young believer. What an impact his music had in the late 70's on my tender faith in God and love for Jesus. Thanks for sharing. Continuing to pray for you and your family.
