  1. Oh my word-you had me rolling again!! This just gets better and better. Nathan’s facial expressions and disappearing act was cracking me up!! Lauper’s got nothing on you guys!! ;)

    Thanks for the laugh this morning!! Keep them coming!


  2. I thoroughly enjoyed that and yes, girls do just wanna have fun! Hee hee! Thanks for the smiles and laughs, guys! Ya’ll are a hoot! :-D God bless!

  3. Fantastico. Eravate grandi in “Stayin’ alive” e lo siete ancor più con Cindy Lauper. Anche se quaggiù vi amiamo tanto. Peccato non potervi vedere in Italia.

    Great!!! It was great with Stayin’ Alive and much more with this Cindy’s track. Thout we aro so far from you, we love you so much. It’s a peaty can’t see you in Italy. Best wishes.

  4. Oh my gosh…my side hurts, my face hurts, and my head from laughing so hard! Are you guys in the bus? Have a great show tonight!

  5. yes we crammed ourselves in the back of our tour bus. This was the only take where barry did not hit mike in the back of the head with his guitar. A little cramped.

  6. Ok, so you guys are super-talented and whatever, but mostly I just want you to be my friends because being funny is pretty much my only requirement for friends… and you guys are cracking me up. I just want you to come over and hang out. Deal?

  7. Ehi, if you are on the tour bus, turn on the right (or maybe on the left?!!??) and drive ’til here. Have you a flyin’ bus?? Or a boat-bus…. Anyway… God bless you

  8. Alright, I laughed until I cried. Seriously funny stuff here. :)

    My question is…When do we get the next “ask MercyMe” installment? I’ve got some questions stockpiled up for Jim and Bart!

  9. OK… I found out you have a blog and I thought “Hey! I LOVE these guys! I should check out their blog! I bet they are OOOOZING with Spiritual wisdom!” Um. :)

    Your ‘man card’ is sooooooooooo gone!

    Seriously. Your song “I can only imagine” was one of the first Christian songs I heard after finding Christ. I have been a HUGE fan (but not like the one in your post) ever since. Music is my favorite way to Worship and I have Worshipped with you MANY times!!! Thank you for sharing the gift God has given you!!

    Love and Blessings to you and your families!!!

  10. Ok, that was just too funny!! Nate, did you black out there at the end from all the bouncing and head shaking??? Hope you got sunshine…send some up this way….it’s 37 degrees out and a total whiteout blizzard! No lie…it’s horrible!! Love, Mike’s Auntie M

  11. No girl ever had more fun than you guys! LOVE IT and you didn’t even have to pay me to say you are the greatest bunch of guys I know!

  12. Love the segment, once again made my day all better.
    Sometime if you could I would LOVE to hear Viva Las Vegas

    Keep Smiling

  13. That was truly AMAZING! You guys are the silliest people that I know, without a doubt! PRAISE THE LORD for silliness! If y’all think you’re up to the challenge, I would still love to hear RAWHIDE!

    GOD Bless,

  14. haha, where were the wigs?? lol I’d still love to see some Veggie Tales..The Pirates Who Don’t Do Anything. Or, it might be perfect to do the Hairbrush song…perfect for Barry, lol. I absolutely love these videos. After a few of these…can we see some Cover Tune Grab Bag Out-takes??

  15. OH….MY…..GOSH!!!!!!

    I seriously had to put my laptop on the floor to reply to this because I can’t get up!!!! Hehehehehe

    I have no more recommendations because I’m pretty sure this can never be topped!!!!!


    Funny thing is I had this as my ringtone for the longest time but just changed it a few days ago…good thing because anytime I hear that song now, I am sure I will just die of laughter!

    You boys are amazing! :)

  16. Now I know why I’m such a MM fan.
    We are just so sympatico. I had honestly just put that very song on my last post on my blog! Though suffice to say not this version!! One of a kind, to be sure!! :)

    Looking forward to more ‘grabs’ from the ‘bag’!


  17. Oh, yeah…
    By the way… how do Robbie and Jim keep getting out of these little gigs?
    (Maybe just not all that much into head-bangin’ to Cyndi Lauper, huh? Oh, well. We can’t all be Nathans.)


    ps- Glad you survived to this final take, Mike.

  18. Too funny! I take it that Nathan got a bit of a head rush from the head banging when he went off to the side for a few seconds. Where is Robby and Jim?

    I would still like to hear Faithfully by Journey. After hearing you hit the high notes on Stayin Alive, you should be able to sing some Steve Perry. Of course, you’re going to need Jim on this one because it needs piano music unless one of you guys play the piano.

    Joel, its funny that you mentioned Jon Foreman because I kind of thought the same thing. My son and I was talking about the song Switchfoot did for the Prince Caspian movie called “This is Home” and how it sounds alot like MM.

  19. Alright you guys are just plain silly and again made me laugh so hard i had tears in my eyes. When Nate started head baning i laughed even more hope he didn’t hurt himself. Thanks for the great video that was awesome!!!

  20. Okay, that was funny! I love listening to you all especially your music. I am sure you have heard it tons of times beforfe but you helped me keep my faith during a very hard time in my life. However, that was just down right fun! Keep the laughs coming! Blessings to you all!

  21. Oh….my….goodness!! I love it! I’m on the edge of my seat waiting for the next one, if only to see Nate! Hilarious. Gotta go, I think I hear my dog howling. :)

  22. I’m still wiping away tears from laughing so hard. Oh my gosh, that was so funny. I really needed that. You guys are great. Keep it up. God bless. :)

  23. Great! Thanks for great video, but I think that Staying Alive, was better, more funny :-)
    However, I like this video very much.. going to donwload it.
    So, again thanks and have a nice day.
    I’m looking forward to another perfect “Cover Tune” videos :-D

  24. Oh, my. I had my speakers WAY too loud.

    I know I requested something but I can’t remember what it was, so here is another. How about a little r&b: Boys II Men, End of the Road.

    Thanks. I’m enjoying the grab bags.

  25. Why is MM so great? Because ya’ll are so down to earth and so real. I’m so glad fame has not changed you. You know your famous when your blog has people from Italy leaving comments! LOVED the song. God Bless.

  26. You guys are great!! It is awesome to see how much fun you have with one another.
    God Bless!!!

    I liked my daughter RaeAnn’s request the other day

    “Don’t stop believin”

  27. My daugther Sarah would like to request “Don’t stop believen” also.

    We will see you on July 23rd and the OC Fair grounds

  28. You guys know how to have fun and crack people up! Can’t wait to see you guys at the Rangers Game in August (TX). I will be requesting one of these hilarious songs!

    Keep this up. So funny and entertaining!

    Who says Christian can’t have fun! Whatever!

  29. Y’all have the most entertaining blog on the net!

    I’d like to see a cover of “Sister Christian,” by Night Ranger. Gotta love the 80 ‘s!! : )

  30. It sounds like Robby and Jim had better be in the next one… everyone’s asking for them. So now i guess you guys wont be able to avoid doing the Cover Tune Grab Bag anymore (muahahahaha!!!!!!! …did i mention i’m planning to take over the world?)

  31. LOL..I have got to say you guys have way too much time on your hands…and I made me laugh like a maniac in my hotel room (I am traveling this week) and have needed the laughter because my grandmother passed away, so thank you!!! I think the next installment should be Boy George, the Culture Club “Karma Chameleon” with the dance that Boy George did in the video!!! keep it up!

  32. Everytime one of your songs comes on the radio now, you make me smile. Not just for the serious, praiseworthiness (if that’s a word!) of the meaning, but because I can picture you guys here, with your kids, being silly and enjoying the life God has given you.

    Thank you for the FUN!!!!! You know God was jamming with you.

  33. Bart that almost hurt my voice just watching it. Dude your not only a band but you got choreography too. How’s your neck Nathan?
    See you in Denver on Sat. Enjoy the rides.

  34. Yay! I agree! you guys have GOT to do a VeggiTales song! that would be SO funny! how about the Hairbrush song? or the Pizza Angel song? or Sumo-wresling song from the Sumo of the Opera VegiTales?

  35. I knew from the title…. that this was going to be …well i didn’t know what to expect … after watching it several times LOLOLOLOLOLLO oh my GOSH i think my face hurts and tears are coming from Laughing so hard. WOW!!!! Nate’s head banging and goin side to side with a different facial expression each time oh my gosh. It just keeps getting better and better. Barts pitch WOW!!! Did Nate have like a headache after that??!!! So where’s Jim and Robby on this one?? Is he still having his garage sale??!! ha They’re missing all the fun!!!! :) :)

  36. Ok its the next day….. and i’ve watched it again…. and have a terrible headache…. i’m still laughing still crying…and still new things that i did not see the first fewtimes …each time i notice new things…LOLOLOL stomache hurts….oh my goodness………..

  37. How about “Hooked on a Feeling (Ooga Chaka)”?

    You guys are great. I didn’t realize how awesome until I saw you guys at Great Adventure in NJ? Keep up the great work.

  38. That was Haaaalarious! I loved “Stayin’ Alive” too. It is so awsome to be able to laugh to something clean. I love the “corny” sense of humor. Out here (he-yah) in the Boston area we call that kind of humor (humah) “cheesey”. God Bless and I am adding this blog to my web page and passin’ on the love and the fun. I saw you a few years back out in NH with Micheal W. Smith but hopefully I will get to see “ya’ll” again soon.

    In Christ,
    Tara “Hephzibah”

  39. Play That Funky Music – Wild Cherry

    Come on, I can almost start breaking down just THINKING how that one’s going to come out. Do I really have to say more?

  40. Hey there fellas! You guys rock. I heard Wally, on Total Axxess, playing your cover songs. Not bad but are you afraid to take on the greatest band of all time?! Stryper that is. Come on’ Bart…man up…throw on some spandex and belt one out.

  41. Hey To the Greatest Band Ever,

    This is the coolest the band who has always brought the most awesome praise music also performing the music we all grew up loving in your own style. Thanks for making me smile.

  42. Wow…Your voice took a beating that day! :) I think you should cover some old country like “I walk the line” or “Luckenbach Texas” by Waylon Jennings. Lets hear the low notes!

  43. Oh-my-Gosh… I soooooo needed that!!!
    What a blessing after the day I’ve had!!!!
    THANK YOU for making me laugh!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Never let it be said that goofiness does not have a place or purpose! IT DOES!!
    Thanks again!!!!!!

  44. Whoa!! I never knew you had such a great falsetto Bart!! At first I was thinking “Oh no…Bart, Falsetto…AGHHH!!” But seriously you pulled it off real well and I’ll be listening to this song over, and over, and over, and over again.

  45. EXCELLENT!!!
    I’m gonna suggest you try A-Ha’s “Take On Me.”

    OMG!!! Now a SLEW of 80’s tunes comes to mind… so i’ll just wait patiently for the next installment!

    Keep up the good and FUN work!
