Throwback Jam, Stryper: Calling On You

This is a throwback to my younger days. Way younger. Like in the 80’s when big hair bands were all the rage.

The Christian rock band, Stryper, hit just the right cord for me. I’d listen to this record over and over again, To Hell with the Devil. And my favorite song was Calling On You.

I want to post an official video here but for some reason it won’t seem to replay on my site, so I’m going to redirect you here, just click this link. It is their official fan page you tube channel: scroll down to Calling on You.

I know, I’m asking a lot today. Especially since it is a Monday!

But this is a powerful anthem from my youth and has withstood the test of time. Let me know what you think- these lyrics still resonate for me:

Inside of me there is a lonely place
Sometimes I just don’t know it’s there
But when I’m all alone
That’s when I have to face
The part of me that needs someone
To be by my side that’s when I call on
You— you make my life complete
You give me all I need
You help me through and through
I’m calling on you
I can’t explain just what you do to me
My love grows stronger everyday
You give me love, you give me company
And when I have to face the rain
You bring sunshine into my life
You, you make my life complete
You give me all I need
You help me through and through
I’m calling on you
You, you make my life complete
You give me all I need
You help me through and through
You, you make my life complete
You give me all I need
Calling on you
Calling on you
Calling on you
Calling on you
(Calling on you, now)
(Calling on you, calling on you)
Calling on you, calling on you, now
Calling on you

 

Thank you, Stryper!
