"Something Good Happens" video
This was our one and only music video. Frontline Music Group, our label at that time, flew us out to LA right before Icthus '92 (April) and put us in a room and told us to jump around. We were hoping for something resembling a good ol' romp from a Monkees' episode but it fell a little short of that, I think. Anyway, in typical Frontline fashion, "Something Good Happens" was released a s a single to radio that summer, and then in the fall, after the single had died and nobody cared, they finally released the video. It showed up on a couple of obscure TV shows but pretty much disappeared into obscurity immediately.
It was packaged along with a lot of old, out-of-date Christian music videos and given the completely idiotic title, "The Best Christian Videos We've Ever Seen" with JT as the host band. A more accurate title would've been "The Worst Christian Videos We've NEVER Seen" because we hadn't even seen our own video at that time, much less the other videos on the program. One would surmise from watching this tape that either we hadn't seen many Christian music videos or we had horrible taste.
When we recorded our next record, 1993's Jacob's Trouble, we told Frontline we had some ideas for our next video. They said,"There's not going to be another video." When we asked why they said that there just wasn't an outlet for Christian music videos that made the cost worthwhile. So that's why there is only one JT music video.
And here it is in all its glory. Silly? Yes. Funny? Maybe. But it is what it is and there ya go.
