That Boyle Woman

There is some really dodgy singing this time, perhaps nerves, but it doesn't matter does it. Susan singing starts at about 1:30.

  2. That song NEVER fails to give me goosebumps, I absolutely adore it. Susan did a mavellous job, and yeah, I reckon she was nervous for sure Andrew.

  3. Matty of course Anon. I had heard he had impersonated her.

    Not sure if it normally does that to me Cazzie, but watching the clip, yes, goosebumps.

  4. Tears here but only from being up to my armpits in chopped onions.
    Loved it, love the song and she did a decent job of it.

  5. A natural performer Jayne. I have heard many ways to stop the onion tears, but who could be bothered. I see it as a cleansing experience.

  6. Personally I could not possibly care less whether she sings like an angel or like a member of Girls Aloud. She doesn't write her own material. She doesn't play an instrument. The only talent she really has is the ability to ride the wave of Simon Cowell's hyperbole.

  7. I would be very disappointed in you Brian if you showed any approval of such popular culture. But that is all it is, popular culture and a bit of fun, a bit of distraction and maybe a bit of setting aside that it looks very set up and that even very plain people can succeed. Who cares! It is a fleeting moment in history but in my empty shallow life, I am enjoying the Boyle phenomena. Now stop being such a grump.

  8. Andrew,

    If I had a big enough pin, that's one Boyle I'd really like to lance.

    (Hey...I could work for the Daily Express producing soundbites like that...so long as I also had an uncle/auntie/close friend who already worked for the Daily Express, of course.)

  9. Ahhh, popular claptrap she might be but through the hyperboyle she's presenting decent songs to a generation of kids who've probably never heard them before.
    I vote there will be a mention of her in the Matt Smith Doctor Who series !

  10. Brian, I expect they will have all those up their sleeves and ready to go when it ends in tears.

    You are probably on the money Jayne.
