Lewis's single to avoid (06/02/06)

The Source ft. Candi Staton - 'You Got The Love'
Every few years, someone somewhere sees fit to re-release this terrible song, for reasons unbeknown to us all. Talk about flogging a dead horse. This old nag was never alive to begin with, so why we need to hear it yet again, I'll never know. Everything about it is completely insipid - the rhythm, the vocals, the lyrics - showing how this was nothing but a spiritless attempt to bring gospel into the mainstream. Gospel is a pretty mundane form of music, and it's something of a crime that Candi's shriekings about the Lord were ever inflicted on our ears. A compelling argument for atheism.
