:: Timi Yuro - Satan Never Sleeps ::
I picked this one up for a buck thinking that the song, “Satan Never Sleeps” might be a hoot, ‘cause, you know, a lot of Christian-themed stuff makes me laugh. There’s nothing funny going on here, though. I should have known that the music would make me cringe, as that’s pretty much the reaction I had from the cover. Yuro has sort of a Liza Minelli approach throughout each of the standards here, just overpowering me with loud abrasiveness when she belts it out. I don’t imagine it was easy for anyone to sleep, let alone Satan, with this stuff on the radio. I’m being overly harsh, of course, but this record hurts me. On her Wikipedia page, both Elvis and Morrissey are listed as fans, so go figure.
