13. i'm sorry, the shift from sensual languor to epic diva fantasy grates on me.
Edited on Wed Nov-10-10 06:32 AM by NuttyFluffers
i half expected Celine Dion to show up riding a cloud and shoot forth sunshine and glitter at Susan Boyle in some sort of prelude to an apocalyptic battle. cheesy as hell and an utter waste of a great song and a good vocal talent. granted, i cannot imagine Susan Boyle infusing any sort of sensual languor into her singing (in her singing she's pretty asexual; not a bad thing, just a thing to be noted). so really, i blame the producers for directing her towards the wrong material.

now if you want to know what i'd do with her? i'd regather the talented members of Cocteau Twins and throw her in for an album. Susan Boyle's voice would lend a strong foundational voice to their etheric ensemble. it'd definitely be something wilder than shuffling her around doing Ballad Standards, Soundtracks, and Diva-esque Covers of songs...

... or (if i was really jaded and calculating) i'd make her do Broadway numbers with a drum machine backup. throw it at the London dance clubs and watch the bucks roll in, a la Ethel Merman's disco album.
