    Very disappointing. Orchestration ? Sound quality ? I couldn't understand one word she was singing. And, she really needed more than that clanking piano, backing her up. I did detect a weak orchestra of some sort, coming in once or twice. But, she needs some powerful backup music to go with her powerful voice.

    I disagree, mate. The subtlety was part of what made it so powerful. Sign me up for the Susan Boyle Fan Club and I will be buying her CD for sure.

    Count me in with the majority on this one! I heard it earlier today by way of Facebook. Absolutely astonishing example of what is to come.

    theantijock saidGreat voice. Wonderful control. And the fortune to have been discovered on international television. What a world! All you have to do is pop on your resume that you sing in church & hit the karaoke circuit then suddenly you're cutting best selling CDs, all in the course of six months. Whatever the public can be sold.

    What happened to starving artists paying their dues? Fame has always been fickle but at least you used to have to work for it first. Not meant as a comment on Boyle's character as I've no idea who she is and I've not doubt that any artist who struggles would love to simply be an overnight utube sensation, but it's not as if she struggled at all in the entertainment world before getting her break there. So what does it say about society that we are so ready to crown a new diva? That we are that good & quick at recognizing true talent, or that we no longer value the struggle to succeed?


    As I remember correctly, when asked by Simon on the show why she hadn't made it as a professional singer, her reply was "because i havent been given the chance". I think to some degree she did try to make it the "old fashioned way" but couldnt break through because she didnt look like Britney Spears. Also, for artist back in the day, there was no Youtube or Idol or Whoevers Got Talent so if they wanted to make it they HAD to make the rounds. Theres still plenty of folks on Youtube trying to sing (most unsuccessfully) and the majority of them havent "made it" yet and never will. Susans' situation just shows that if you really have the talent and youre lucky enough to catch lightning in a bottle, you just might make it. Then again, where is Diana DeGarmo or Jasmine Trias? Even with the new medium and popularity of these shows, more people dont make it than do.

    On another note, I think Susan is a good singer but i dont think she's "great". If you want to hear a better remake of "Wild Horses", look up Natasha Bedingfields version.

    This woman is amazing, and like any gifted artist, will have eccentricities that go along with it.

    TS Eliot once said, for example, that "anxiety is the hand-maiden of creativity".

    The song is "Wild Horses" by The Rolling Stones

    lyrics:

    Childhood living is easy to do
    The things you wanted I bought them for you
    Graceless lady you know who I am
    You know I cant let you slide through my hands

    Wild horses couldnt drag me away
    Wild, wild horses, couldnt drag me away

    I watched you suffer a dull aching pain
    Now you decided to show me the same
    No sweeping exits or offstage lines
    Could make me feel bitter or treat you unkind

    Wild horses couldnt drag me away
    Wild, wild horses, couldnt drag me away

    I know I dreamed you a sin and a lie
    I have my freedom but I dont have much time
    Faith has been broken, tears must be cried
    Lets do some living after we die

    Wild horses couldnt drag me away
    Wild, wild horses, well ride them some day

    Wild horses couldnt drag me away
    Wild, wild horses, well ride them some day

    theantijock -

    Here are some clips of Susan Boyle from 1984:

    "The Way We Were"


    "I Don't Know How to Love Him"




    Next is her singing "Killing Me Softly With His Song," which was on a demo tape of hers.



    Here is the link to the story regarding the demo tape:

    Good on her. Big voice, a little bit crazy, and millions of fans buying her albums. She'll be singing all the way to the bank icon_smile.gif
