Let’s start another week by grabbing another slice of Southern Gospel cheese. The Kingsmen’s “Excuses”, from the 1981 album Live…Naturally, was the biggest #1 hit of the group’s career and one of the longest running #1 songs in Southern Gospel chart history.
Would a novelty song such as “Excuses” be as big a hit today? Probably not. But, one can’t deny the fun factor the song had as is evidenced by this YouTube clip from the Kingsmen reunion video done in 1995. What do you think; could a novelty song like “Excuses” be a success in today’s Southern Gospel market place?
