Remember Blessid Union of Souls and “I Believe?”
I’m linking out to the version of the “I Believe” video that uses the original album track. Until writing this, I didn’t realize until there was a radio edit. That version has the lyric “One day, daddy’s gonna find out she’s in love with a brother from the streets.” On the album, it’s not “brother.” The band decided this is the version they want on YouTube, so I’m going with it.
How many Top 40 bands do you know that got their name from an episode of “M*A*S*H*?” I apologize in advance for the illicit link to a flipped version of “M*A*S*H” Season 3, Episode 18, “House Arrest.” Jump ahead 8:04 to hear Frank Burns say it.
So, what’s BUoS been up to lately? Over the years, they got on the soundtrack for “Pokémon: The First Movie” and “Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls,” recorded a couple songs for a charity CD about the Cincinnati Reds (the band’s from Ohio), and became a contemporary Christian act. They still tour, but singer Eliot Sloan is the only original member these days.
