They should make an album from Susan's TV guide special,

she's so refreshing, it just makes me so happy to see her happy,

she has the voice of an angel - I once her her singing and I

thought it was Celine singing!! The TV special was the best I"ve

seen in a long time.

To sing with your idol in front of a huge audience and with all the baggage of nerves etc ( as reported )must be traumatic, but, to carry it off as she did is something special. I'd love to hear her sing some Jazz.

Looks like we have a newcomer to Mudcat.

Janice, if you'll read through other threads about Susan here, you'll find that we covered a lot of that territory. While there have been detractors, she has a lot of supporters here, who hope she'll be able to let 'er rip and belt out whatever it is she wants to, especially if it compliments her lovely voice and range.

How many musicians do you know who like only one type of music? She may be enjoying belting out the show tunes, but she may have a good repertoir of church songs, of folk songs, of popular rock songs and torch singer ballads. It will be interesting as it unfolds.

Why are peeps presuming that SB doesn't actually personally like the stuff she sings?

My guess would be that she personally *loves* those show tunes, and why shouldn't she? She told the world yonks ago, that her personal dream is to be the next Elaine Page - which I'd guess, would tend to describe the type of music that she likes.

Anyway, good for her that she got through the psychological troubles she was having before. I hope she does well for herself from the work she's now doing - and it isn't all going to line Cowell's already overburdened pockets!

That's one possibility.   Another one is that the stuff she has done reflects her own taste also. With her high profile--and, it appears, sales-- there's likely to be another CD.   We'll probably get an answer to this question eventually.   There's no rush.

One hopes that with a lifetime of singing in her home community that Susan does have a good-sized repertoire. Once the hoopla and the managed stuff has run its course, perhaps Susan will be able to default to her own personal favorites and you'll hear some of the local or folk type songs that have gone unnoticed until now. So much of what people know about Susan is the stage-managed press side of things that emanate from her performance last spring. The "real" Susan may surprise people. I certainly hope so.

I guess because I am an artist as well as a singer, the LP covers with the illustrations and photos and the liner notes and sometimes lyrics were part of the whole shared experience for me. We'd talk about not only the music but what was on those LP covers. Just not the same now, even with CD inserts. It doesn't seem like a group experience as much as it was back then with those big albums of visuals. I worked in a radio station through college, and the covers had info we dj's would share with the listeners, too.

The Sony Walkman came out in 1979! Thirty years ago now, and people have been using some form of personal music system ever since - when *out and about* of course. Most people when at home however, still continue to switch on the stereo - or at least I certainly do.

I have my amp & speakers connected to the laptop, and of course there are docking stations for iPods too, which do essentially the same thing. I don't think anything's really any different than it was.

Kat, you could get your grandson a twin headphone socket and a spare set of ear-phones to go with it, that way if he has a friend round they both get a set. Though it's possibly more sociable to have one ear free for chatter! On my old Sony Walkman, I even had a Mono/Stereo option, which meant when sharing you didn't lose half the music..

I remember in 1970 a group of us were camping in brittany. We had a battery operated deck and a collection of records. One of these was the Bridge over troubled Water LP,whichhad all the lyrics printed on the cover. Sitting round the camp with french youngsters joining in the words , reading from the cover,, was a great highlight.

There may be some hope. The first thing my grandson did when he turned on the mp3 player we gave him, was to turn to his friend and hand him one of the earbuds so they could listen together. His parents bought him speakers for it, so he can share more easily and it is turning out to be a great way for him to learn lyrics.

Good point, Alice.   In a lot of ways we were really really lucky to grow up when we did--particularly when pop music was a lot of fun, you could do it yourself without a boatload of electronics---and it wasn't so damn nihilistic as it seems to be now.

Ron, re what you wrote about mp3's, I'm sad for what young people today are missing - the shared record albums that we would sit around and listen to with groups of friends, passing around the album covers and discussing the illustrations and liner notes. Music was a group bonding experience. Now I see people plugged into their personal ear buds, solitary, alone.

Record-breaking pre-order sales for her on Amazon, I understand. What I find most impressive is that that seems to imply that people are actually shelling out money for her music, rather than just take it off the Web.   I'm not tempted to buy anything by her, but if people are actually buying her music, good for her. I've read somewhere that 90% or some amazing percentage of music these days is not bought but procured through other means.   Sometimes I think Jan and I are the only ones who buy CD's--though it's classical for me and current country for her. Of course I like liner notes etc.   By and large an MP3 doesn't make it for me.

Surely , whatever the merits of this good lady, her achievements do not belong to a music site dedicated to Blues and Folk.
Mudcat does not need to descend to the-sheep like mentality of the rest of the knobheads who support the T.V. programmes / system control - from which she came.
I try to escape all that shite by reading and contributing to Mudcat.
Joe can you remove such references to Ms Boyle into the "other " batch, but with the acknowledgement from me that (not having heard her sing) wish her every good fortune in her musical career and life in general.

MichaelR: Sweeney & I had, as you say, a 'dust-up'; i.e a brief disagreement just between the two of us; now reconciled if you look. I can't feel it just to call that 'mean-spirited' in the same sense as the drawing attention to the comment about Ms Boyle's intellectual capacities on another thread, about which you may recall I agreed with you in the very next post to yours denouncing it; but from which you nevertheless extrapolated the generalisation over which SpleenCringe took issue with you.

You appear to me to be confusing two different sorts of discourse to mount an ill-considered attack on the bona fides of UK posters in general — American ones being invariably sweetness·&·light in their posts, no doubt!?.

"The impact of Susan Boyle is but another nail in the coffin of our culture; its only purpose is to make everything the same in order to facilitate marketing. "

Too gloomy, not least because she so palpably isn't the same as previous artists marketed via the same channels. She isn't Will Young, she isn't Leona Lewis - you can generalise about the techniques of selling being the same, but there remain differences of style & emphasis.

Have you ever heard of Vesta Tilley!! This is not a new thing and if you can sing (as Vesta could to) then why not have your five minutes.

Of course we would like to hear her sing some traditional stuff instead of the songs she is told to sing but heh that's becuase that is what i want to hear, we don't like it when people tell us to sing stuff we don't like either.

She is currently breaking sales records -   this doesn't make her music significant, but it mnakes *her* significant for those of us who like to reflect upon the cultural/historical/social aspects of music.

I've never criticised those Mudcatters who want to wrangle over the chord sequences on a particular banjo to some old fart's version of 'Froggy Went A Courting' - that's your thing & good luck. But others here, me included, like to look at music's impact as well as its content.

I suppose if Susan Boyle sang a song or two in my presence, I wouldn't mind. She has a nice voice and style - but her entire repertoire can be performed in an hour or so. I can't see what's left to say about her, but apparently people want to talk - and I can't see a good reason why they shouldn't. The thread started today had the makings of another Mudcat brawl after about three messages, so I moved the whole thing over to an existing thread to water down the nastiness.

Hey! My post was missed off in the merger! Never mind; here it is again.

Lets keep this thread sensible and no flaming or attacking individuals on here please, otherwise I will be asking Joe to remove the thread or at least moderate it.

So no opinions to the contrary or else you'll be petitioning Pope Joe for an excommunication, huh? Well - I always thought Mudcat was a discussion group where people are allowed to think for themselves regarding matters of minority relevance - not some society for the mindlessly mutual adoration of the latest fabricated phoney MOR celebrity superstar, whatever human interest element has been woven into the mawkishly grotesque and sickening fantasy by way reality. Reality TV becomes reality music! Except reality isn't real any more - it's been annexed by the spectacle!

I tell you - it was this sort of diabolically commercialised soul-deadening CRAP that pushed me out of the box as a somewhat desperately inquisitive 12-year-old (circa 1973) thus leading me to the real stuff. It's a journey that continues to this day - and the merest thought that such mind-numbingly manipulative culture-killing so-called music still exists ensures that I remain well and truly out there - where the wild things are, the real things, the truly wonderful things which includes a whole world of human & musical possibility. Hey, and that includes folk - remember that, you guys? Mesmerised as you are by the tinsel-glare of the Susan Boyle image-myth-making marketing super-star machine.

Snap out of it. Keep it real. Here's the antidote:
