We don’t quite know what it is about Susan Boyle, but every now and again, she throws up a little curve ball that just begs you to sit up and take note. On her debut album ‘I Dreamed A Dream’, it was her cover of the 1971 Rolling Stones classic ‘Wild Horses’ that had us transfixed. It was her soft and well crafted delivery of the song that made it stand out above the rest.
And from what we’ve heard of her new album ‘Someone To Watch Over Me’ thus far, it’s her rendition of Depeche Mode’s 1990 single ‘Enjoy The Silence’ that impresses here.
Once again, meticulously delivered with a soft and subtle vocal, the song is transformed from a straight out pop number to a sweeping ballad. Is it wrong to say we’re liking this?
