Pre-Idol Music from Danny Gokey

April 13, 2009

Danny Gokey's original music SUCKS

Hey, go for it. If you’re a Danny Gokey fan, then by all means…

Here is You Are Great

(I’m warning you, the first lyric is You are my God…)

Here is You Are Welcome

Creative song titles, right? I couldn’t get through either of them, however, the second one sounds almost identical to the first one, and Jesus steps in for God in the lyrics.

I can’t even give it one star. The songs both uh, they both kind of suck donkey balls.

Before the Top 13, Gokey said he would not do any song performed memorably by a past contestant. Ooops. 

Yeah, Gokey…Bo Bice’s version. No contest.

    My stomach actually hurts now. Have TPTB heard these? Because if he wins, and this is the kind of thing that is going to be on his album… lets just say Hicks is gonna look like a god compared to him.

    Guess who also did “Stand By Me”?
    Ladies and Gentlemen, of the Magical Mormon Underpants, I give you David Archuleta.
    So he performed something done by not one, but two previous Idol contestants.

    It’s like someone took Nick Lachey’s voice and removed all the grit and soul that set him apart from the rest of the AC crowd.

    My dislike of Gokey has nothing to do with his religion or background. My issue with him is that he seems so arrogant in his performances and he always gets that smug look on his face when he is announced as safe. I’d dislike any contestant with those qualities, whether they are Christian or not.

    I made it through 30 secs of the 1st one and 20 secs of the 2nd one. Dreck. Same old “contemporary christian” drivel they’ve been making for decades. Just bad and boring.

    I’m not into the whole Jesus thang, but I am tolerant of who people are, something that so many bloggers and Americans in general cannot say. Why are so many people so full of hate? That’s really scary. Why does Danny intimidate you? He’s just a cool guy who knows himself and who knows how to sing. No matter what rank he ends up with in Idol, he will always come out on top in life because he’s a LOVER, not a HATER.

    Too bad the haters out there will always struggle to keep their heads above their self-made filth.

    This is actually better than what he sang at church, better than the album Enter In, and better than most of the stuff than he can do live.

    Someone needs to contact the soundguy who got fired from Beloit, I am sure that he has a pile of Gokey recordings. I hope that he starts selling boot legs so he can make ends meet!

    Topidol, I am sure that the GOkley family is thanking you for the props of one star, which is much better than this recording deserves.

    Sandra, I would not get to close to Danny, you might end up as the next Gokey Sob Story… Just sayin

    Oh dear!
    That is worse than I expected.
    I had such hopes for him during the audition rounds and it has just been a steady downward spiral ever since.
    Why on Earth anyone would voluntarily subject themselves to this dreck is beyond me- it’s dreary, pedantic, and such a buzzkill.

    LOVE Danny’s voice, LOVE his personality and HIS love of music.

    Why does the mention of God and Jesus in the lyrics of Gospel songs make you cringe… who were you expecting them to be about?

    His voice is superb and distinctive- Danny to win for me!!

    Why are people voting for this man? I absolutely cannot stand him, and he hasn’t had a single standout performance, imo. Sounds the same every damn week and I can practically feel the cavities developing in my teeth from those syrupy songs he growls out. Ugh, and I won’t even start with the ‘thrusting pelvis’ business.
    Vote anyone but him. (but preferably the uber-talented Adam or Allison)

    ugh, and he’s totally wearing a tank below that shirt. that’s like a cardinal sin. what a dork! i may be biased, but to my knowledge kris has never pimped his religion or missionary work on the show. VOTE HOT BY DEFAULT!
