albertBrazilian artist Morris Albert sang “Feelings” back in 1974.  While it never reached #1, it was popular … even though sort of silly and sappy.  In more recent years it has been best known as a target of parody and ridicule for embodying what are perceived by many as the most insipid lyrical and musical qualities of 1970s “soft rock” music. It appears frequently on lists of “the worst songs ever.”

Here is what another great song-writer said about feelings … just to balance things out!

“Feelings come and feelings go,
And feelings are deceiving;
My warrant is the Word of God–
Naught else is worth believing.

I’ll trust in God’s unchanging Word
Till soul and body sever,
For, though all things shall pass away,
His Word shall stand forever!”

-Martin Luther
