definitely a different take on a Stone's classic tune. there are parts i would like to see her do slightly different, but overall, i like it.

her voice is good, she just needs the right material to make her shine.

I appreciate your appreciation rox but in my opinion, it was a bit overwrought and too boisterously dramatic. I think the song warrants a lot more of a subdued treatment.

some time ago, I had posted a version of this song by THE SUNDAYS that I think is a tremendous cover.

boyle has extreme talent - but I think her delivery is just too formal and old school for this song.

The lady obviously is very talented, and I always enjoy seeing somebody from "humble circumstances" shoot the moon.

I really don't enjoy her style of music, but there are millions who do, and she's probably going to be very successful and wealthy.

No, not right now. It'd be nice to have good link, rather than wasting a lot of time searching the web.

Thanks! Yeah that was good. Different. Hardly recognizable to me as the classic "wild horses" but very nice singing indeed. She has a remarkable voice.

Didn't watch this on YouTube but saw her guest appearance on America's Got Talent. I was expecting it to be too over the top, but was very pleasantly sursprised at the amount of sublety and dynamics in her performance. I also really liked that arrangement, in some ways better than the original.

Hey now - my "better" was qualfied with "in some ways" and was refering specifically to aspects of the arrangement that I liked. That is not even close to the making a declaration that "her version is better that the original".

And I'm sure I'd hate her version too if I was being repeatedly subjected it to it against my will. In fact I can guarantee that!

Besides, this whole Susan Boyle thing is so September '09. Most of the world has moved on, let's join them.
