I demanded a new apostle song, and they delivered!

So, as you may remember, back in December when Joseph B. Wirthlin died, I posted a “demand” for a new apostle song.

I was actually surprised that more Mormon-themed blogs did not at least mention the fact that a new apostle song was needed.

But in any case, this afternoon I got a comment on that old post from the “Sons of Ammon” who were the writers of the song, saying that they had posted a new video up on YouTube.

And sure enough, here it is.

Enjoy! Let me see if I can help spread the song – as of this post, February 10th at 7:40 p.m. the YouTube video had 49 views.

I demand a new apostle song…STAT!

Okay, so with the passing of Joseph B. Wirthlin, we need a new apostles song. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, you are either not Mormon or have been living under a cave for the past year or so.

See below YouTube video, among others

It looks like we’re going to have to pair up M. Russell Ballard with Richard G. Scott. I’m sure Elder Ballard would be happy to drop “sold used cars” for something a little less shady-sounding :-) . But then we now have to change the pairings for Robert D. Hales and Jeffrey R. Holland. And then Bednar and Cook and we’ll just have to wait to pair up D. Todd Christofferson and the “new guy”.

Now, I love Elder Ballard same as the rest (mo’ even), but it has not escaped my attention that if he died, we wouldn’t have to mess up the song!!!!

Okay that was a joke, and one that is in poor taste (as if this whole post wasn’t a little macabre anyways). SO let me just say that I hope that Elder Wirthlin’s family is comforted in their time of grief.

But…. we do need a new apostle song… STAT!

I found out that the original song was written by 2 seminary teachers who call themselves the “Sons of Ammon” and that they also have songs to help you memorize all the seminary scripture mastery scriptures, which were pretty cool too.

In closing, I would just like to say that I was disappointed in Dan’s First law of the Internet in this case. I can’t be the only one thinking about this, can I?!?!? Half of my posting this is so that all those other people out there can know that they’re not alone.
