Susan is a Goddess
By Beth Maxwell Boyle

What a joy to get a wee taste of the CD Susan Boyle will be releasing November 23, 2009. Susan Boyle's version of the Rolling Stones classic "Wild Horses" has been leaked as a teaser. It is remarkable and very fresh. The choice of it as a song for Susan Boyle to sing was brilliant. Her delivery is flawless. There is something sort of Kate Bush in her delivery. I am blown away. The piano accompaniment is dreamy. If this is truly a sign of what we have to expect from her upcoming album I Dreamed a Dream, it will be nothing short of monumental. Susan Boyle is expected to appear this week on US TV as part of the finale of America's Got Talent. OK I have only listened to it 10 times in a row!! Please go have a listen! I can't wait for this CD!

Wild Horses as Susan Sings it!

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 can't just let you slide through my hands

Wild horses couldn't drag me away
Wild horses couldn't drag me away

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

Wild horses couldn't drag me away
Wild horses, couldn't drag me away

I know I dreampt you a sin and a lie
And I have my freedom but I don't have much time
Fate has been served and tears must be cried
So let's do some living after we die

Wild horses couldn't drag me away
Wild horses, Couldn't drag me away

The original Stones version was from the 1970 ‘Sticky Fingers’ album.
