"Good For Me" by Amy Grant: Awesome Old Song of the Week

From her 1991 album Heart in Motion (which I'm not ashamed to admit was often in my walkman during the bus ride to school back then), Amy Grant's "Good for Me" reached #8 on the Billboard pop charts in 1992.

As a freshman I remember once playing it during my show while DJing for my high school radio station.  A friend of mine told me that I needed to air more rock music if I wanted to attract listeners (which probably could have meant the difference between 2 and 3 on a good day), and I responded by suggesting "Good for Me" was kind of rock-like because of the electric guitar solo at the 2:45 mark.  And while I vividly recall saying that, I'm honestly not sure if I was being sarcastic or serious.
