How about "Celebrate, Jesus" by Gary Oliver.

I am with you "Lord I Lift Your Name on High" - Deliver me! "I could Sing of Your Love Forever" needs to go away also, as well "Shine, Jesus, Shine" - if anyone still uses that thing - STOP IT! "The River is Here" is a cheeser as is "We Want to See Jesus Lifted High". For me, the most recent Cheeseball award winner has to "God is Good, All the Time". Sounds like Bonanza music.

Besides those already mentioned, I have a few that need to "rest":
-"He Has Made Me Glad"
-"Shout To The Lord"
-"Father I Adore You"

I have a couple....Forgive me, Lord, for You are mighty, but What A Mighty God We Serve is cheesy to me. First, we sing real fast about angels bowing before him. Second, white people clap on beats 1 and 3 then they begin to get into a frenzy and rush rush rush the tempo. I'll never forget the time Brooklyn Tab choir came to Prestonwood and Todd Bell actually stopped the music to tell the white people that we clap on beats 2 and 4. The song was groovin' then.

They next song that is cheesy to me is a song that has ministered to me many times. It is the chorus of Tradin' My Sorrows. Sorry, Darryl, you got off to a great start with the poetry on the front end, but did you draw a blank on the chorus? Yes, Lord. Yes, Lord. Yes, Yes, Lord. Amen.
