Okay, I admit that I am about three or four decades behind; though my children would beg to differ–I am confident that they always believed I was the hippest and coolest dad ever. (Please pause while I stop choking and my children stop laughing.)
I’m so far behind that it takes a friend to teach me about some Irish band, their gospel roots (I had heard of this from another friend), and a mutual acquaintance (George Pendergrass) who was associated with the original recording of the song (that you will know well, I promise). He also has to summarize what happens on Jimmy Kimmel for me to have a clue. So with all this aside, check out the link through YouTube and watch until the end.
