After last week’s first post on bad Southern Gospel songs, I wanted to follow-up this week with a second choice. I have changed the name of this feature to the cheese factor. In looking at these unique Southern Gospel songs, I am looking for corny, quirky, cheesy and bad re-writes. Since last week’s first post I have received several emails with suggestions that I will be using in future posts.
This week I wanted to look at a song with a cheesy song title. ”The Devil’s In The Phone Booth Dialing 911″ was recorded by Walt Mills on his 1995 recording This Joy I Feel. This song, as cheesy as it is, actually became a radio single for Walt. I can’t quite remember if it found any success at radio.
Walt Mills was no stranger to Southern Gospel radio success in the early ’90′s. He had a huge #1 hit in 1990 with “I’ve Got A Feeling” and followed that up with several other top 10 hits throughout the early part of that decade. If the song title wasn’t enough, the song even gets a Jerry Lee Lewis style piano to make it even cheesier.
So where does “The Devil’s In The Phone Booth” rate on the cheese factor this week? Remember to rate it on a cheese factor scale of 1 to 5 in the comments section.
