I was like OMG that’s Chipsticks song!
REALLY GORGEOUS FIREWORKS!!!!
THIS IS ONE OF MY FAVORITE SONGS…MERCI’ CHIPS!!!!!!
You are tres, tres welcome Sue!
Oh Chips I never ever tire of this song/video combo. I heard the song on the radio the other day and I immediately began yelling in my car… “That’s Chipsticks song!” and then I added… “Oh yeah and it’s Train’s song too.” Hahaha.
For any TOD’er who loves the Hey Soul Sister song, you should check out their other fantastic song, “Save me San Fransisco.” It’s a love song to their hometown and is absolutely delightful.
THE VIDEO IS PRICELESS!
Not clear – you mean that neat video was created by Chips? She does the blog AND makes videos (ie, is creative with visuals and musical timing) Holy shit!
GC, I’m very lucky to be able to work from home, but sometimes when I miss my deadlines by ….. oooooh ….96 hours, my boss calls and politely asks: “WTF do you DO all day?”
If only he knew
Oh, that is toooo funny Chipsticks!!!! We’ll never tell
I am so impressed. I use youtube often to discover new music (backgrounds for movies, TV, figure skating) and then transfer to my ITUNES library. I adore melodies/beats tied perfectly to movement. Maybe because I can’t dance worth a damn, I appreciate other ways to synchronize this. I just finished adding one in fact. (Lacrimosa, someone put to a Robin Hood sequence) But I get the impression these contributers are fanboys/girls, not genius blog owners as well like you! Well, I am EXCELLENT at napping….ah well, I can also do advanced Yoga. Ommm. (when I’m not napping)
Seriously, you are awesome!
Chips, that is really funny!

I fell in love with that song thanks to Chipsticks and then to hear it played live by the artist – WOW!!!!!!
I too fell in love with this song having heard it here. Then watching it live I said, that’s Chipsticks song.
Hiya Joy, it was hilarious, when I was watching Train and they started the song my reaction was “HOW DARE YOU STEAL OUR TUNE!!” Before reminding myself it was, well, um, actually their song. Hope you’re keeping well Joy.
Joy? You know, I still feel some anger towards you ….. I mean, it’s just not fair that some people on earth get to live in Barbados. When I try to picture paradise, I see your home place. Would you like to do a house swap??
Yes Chipsticks I am. Have not been commenting much but I do check a zillion times each day. Must say I am learning so much about US politics and politicians. Before 2008 I could not tell you what a Primary was. Thanks to your site and your amazing followers I now feel like I am ready to vote.
only in the summer then you can have your house back.
‘only in the summer then you can have your house back.’ lol What’s the saying? “Her momma didn’t raise no fool.” lol
The thieves!!!!!! Hiya GGail
But, I’ll always remember I fell in love with it because of YOU Chipsticks Except I now know the artist’s name: Train from San Francisco. Thanks Chipsticks
They owe all their fame to us TODers, GGail!
You got that right Chipsticks!!!!
Awwwww, that was so cute. I’m laughing, smiling and crying. I hate it when I do that!
I love that song too. It is the very first song I downloaded on my iPod when I got it. It is much better with the video though. What a wonderful President and First Family we have been blessed with.
My favorite song/video. Thanks for reposting! Imagine that they sang it tonight.
Best compilation ever. Thank you so much. Now I have to watch it again….
Hey Chipsticks, you’ve posted that video at our request more times than I can count and we never never get enough of it. Bless you Soul Sister!
It’s definitely the most requested, GGail! Always a pleasure to re-post
Seeing them together as a couple and as a family just makes my heart soar. So happy they are our First Family!!!
They’re the best thing that ever happened to us.
Absolutely spectacular Macy’s fireworks display in New York City. This has to be the best fireworks display I have seen. The backdrop of the Statue of Liberty was just stunning. The songs were great and very emotional.
It was pretty amazing—–on and on from 6 coordinated launching stations. Spec—tacular. All of the celebrations have been great tonight— Boston Pops now——I’ve noticed I’m much more appreciative because of who’s in the WH. Makes a big diff.
I grew up with the NY harbor fireworks. Was so let down when I moved to rural America. lol Has taken years to get over and I still try to be in NY for the fireworks on july 4th. It helps that my sis’ b-day is july 2nd. Did they set them off from the barges in the river, timed perfectly? Always a site to see,
Embee and Meta, thanks.
Of course, is there anyone else to support and work toward re-electing? This is a continuation of what we started in 2008 primaries in VA. I will call the # to know when the campaign offices will be opened here for canvassing.
Awwww I love this video and could watch it like a million times without getting tired!!! I smile everytime I look at this video!!!
Heeeeeyheeeey heeeyheeeyheeeyheeeeyheeeey………..tonight! I need to download to my mp3 asap.
That video was perfection….the footage from the balcony during the Nobel Prize visit was magical, almost fairy-tail-like….. LOVE my First Family .
Chipsticks, you just put my heart at peace. Another wonderful creation.
I never tire of hearing that song and watching this video!
Very, very special!!! Thank you, Chipsticks, and I can imagine how delighted you were when they sang this tonight.
Yes.We.Can. … DO.More.Together!
Okay, I’m bummed. I just watched the WH celebration and they didn’t play Train doing the song. I guessed I missed it.
Thank goodness for Chipsticks’ video! My favorite part (well, one of) is when then Sen. Obama is sitting on the chair in the middle of the room looking centered and grounded and all the females are practically running circles around him. It’s how he’s been dealing with the petulant congress and disfunctional press, whiney electorate, etc.
That’s my favorite part, too, LunarSea. Good explanation too for what you think the scene symbolizes.
Post gremlins doing their mischief again. Don’t know how my post wounded up above an earlier post!?
i especially enjoyed the “Sing” video, and played it twice. I felt so much emotion watching all these semi-familiar scenes of hte President in interaction with the people. I believe there is no one like him anywhere on earth, with his particular brand of talents and his appearance and values and family, and I intend to enjoy him on your blog every day possible to the last day of his presidency. Then I think I’ll go into an eclipse.
But first, we must work as hard as we can as citizens to help him in his reelection campaign.
Thank you for making this a special national birthday.
Awesome Chipsticks. Thanks for all you do.
Love the video, warms the cockles of my heart, but I’d never heard the song until I became a TODer. I’m sure the performance was dedicated to ‘soul sister’ Chips
Tried to watch this on UTUBE but it gives me sorry this is a private video? Why is that?
Loved this and would like the outside world to see it too!
