Heard this on radio earlier without realising who it was - surprised it turned out to be Susan Boyle. :eek4:

Don't like the arrangement - gimme the Stones version anyday, but the voice is good. They can do amazing things in the recording studio these days. Reminded me a little of Kate Bush.

I think it will sell by the shed-load in the run-up to Xmas, but I won't be buying it. :)

She has a good voice :) Clearly they've turned it into a Broadway/West End type ballad to suit her style of singing.

I really liked it. My only complaint is that song doesn't go anywhere dynamically. I know it's corny but I would have preferred the big tom fill and into the full band half way through. But no key change though. definitely no fucking key change dammit!!!!

I am not so sure about all this. She sounds good - better than she did in TV so......

Has she improved, or has her voice had a " photoshop" job? :chin:


From those I know who work in this area - media/sound/recording - they reckon that silk purses often are made out of sow's ears.

I agree JG - she sounds good and better than she did on TV.
