Top 10 songs that need to be re-recorded

Often, when I hear an excellent song on a project that never gets singled, I file it away mentally as a song I’d like to see some group re-do someday. Here, in no particular order, are ten songs recorded in recent years that deserve to not be forgotten.

  • “We Will Be Changed” (Perrys, Life of Love, 2004). An artist that would do a great rendition of the song: Kingdom Heirs
  • “Believing is Seeing” (Dove Brothers, Anything But Ordinary, 2005). An artist that would do a great rendition of the song: Mark Trammell Trio.
  • “His Response” (Mercy’s Mark, self-titled, 2004). They did single the song, but do not perform it live anymore. An artist that would do a great rendition of the song: Triumphant Quartet.
  • “When Mercy Came Down” (Mark Trammell Trio, This Time, 2005). An artist that would do a great rendition of the song: Perrys.
  • “Death Has Died” (Cathedrals, High and Lifted Up, 1993). An artist that would do a great rendition of the song: Ernie Haase & Signature Sound. (This was the song that originally got me interested in Southern Gospel.)
  • “Forgave Me, Saved Me, Raised Me” (Triumphant Quartet, self-titled, 2004). An artist that would do a great rendition of the song: Gold City.
  • “A Day that Never Ends” (Perrys, Come Thirsty, 2006). An artist that would do well with the song: Ernie Haase & Signature Sound.
  • “The Voice I Could Not Resist” (Greater Vision, My Favorite Place, 2006). An artist that would do well with the song: Gaither Vocal Band.
  • “A Wonderful Shepherd” (Poet Voices, This Changes Everything, 2001). An artist that would do a great rendition of the song: Blackwood Brothers Quartet.
  • “Until I Start Looking Ahead” (Perrys, Life of Love, 2003). An artist that would do a great rendition of the song: Greater Vision.

Now, since I didn’t say that these were the best 10, I don’t expect this post to stir up any controversy. In fact, I’m not even expecting any comments. But, after all, I’m not here to stir up controversy or attract comments, but just to provide commentary on the genre and to make the blog an interesting daily read.

4 Letters to the Editor

Southern Gospel Journal welcomes letters to the editor. We will post the most thoughtful and insightful submissions. Ground rules: Don't attack or belittle groups or fellow posters, or advance heresies rejected by orthodox Christianity. Do keep comments positive, constructive, and on topic.
  1. I can’t envision David Sutton singing “His Responce”. Anthony Facello can’t be topped on that. Maybe Triumphant could give Eric Bennett a solo on it!
    I would like to hear some group redo “Storms I Never See”. Tony Jarman recorded it on L5’s “London” CD.

  2. Just thought of another: “Oh What A City” from the Singing Cookes. Maybe with Jerry Martin??

  3. Here is a song that you might consider: An old Cathedral Quartet song which I think is Oh so beautiful…Even winds whisper His Name. Written by Cathedral tenor Mac Tauton. I wish Greater Vision or Mark Trammell Trio would revive this song. Sorry I am so late in my comments I just found this blog and have been reading through it.

  4. I Have Been Changed with Gold City: Aaron featured.
