The English folks are going off about this lass, or should that be matron? Who is this Scottish chickie babe? I try to resist popular culture and fail all the time. Have you heard her sing? She is magic. She hasn't been kissed by any girl or a guy, in a proper way. Can I assume she has not been penetrated, as yet? I was up for rolling the eyes until I heard her sing.
I will cautiously overcome my scepticism..........
That is how I started this post a few days ago and that is embarrassing writing. It was up for an edit, but regardless, I'll just leave it for now as a lesson to myself on how not to write. I was right to be sceptical me thinks and that was even before watching the actual clip on Youtube. I had heard her sing and seen a still photo of her.
I had the impression that she was a simple country lass from a small village who for some reason could sing like a angel. She had devoted herself to looking after her aged parents and never had the opportunity to form a romantic relationship. It wasn't sitting quite right for me though. The cheering made it hard to hear her voice properly, but from what I did hear, it was exceptionally good and she had vocal TECHNIQUES.
The next day I watched the whole clip and quickly concluded that like most of these shows, it was all very managed and the feigned surprise by the judges, just that, feigned.
With very little searching, up came a Youtube clip of her singing Cry Me a River right back in 1999. Beautiful. But the vocal techniques very obvious, even to a non musical person like me.
I suppose she could have learned this herself by listening to recordings, but I am very doubtful. It sounds awfully like a trained voice to me.
Not that it all really matters that much. Britains Got Talent and Susan Boyle has received publicity that all the tea in China could not buy. I hope Ms Boyle does well. She truly has a fantastic voice and is no doubt enjoying her fifteen minutes plus of fame. I certainly don't see her as any sort of victim, or niave, that's for sure.
