Susan Boyle Sings “Cry Me A River”

susan boyle

Finally we get to hear Susan Boyle, the 47-year-old who wowed the judges and audience on Britain’s Got Talent, sing a second song to prove if her performance was a fluke or not!

As I said yesterday, hearing Ms. Boyle sing a second song was going to be the key to figuring out if it was somehow a fluke when she sang  “I Dreamed A Dream”.  The good news is, a second song has surfaced and… she’s the real deal folks!

The Daily Record located a 1999 charity CD that had only 1,000 pressings, and on it Ms. Boyle performs “Cry me A River” and… wow, just… wow.  This woman is a true talent, and I am so thrilled to finally hear her sing a second song so we at last know if it was just some weird oddity when she sang on Britain’s Got Talent the other night.

As The Daily Record is claiming exclusivity on the track, these copies may disappear, but I will try to keep an eye on them.  Thanks to The Inquisitr for the idea of posting two different copies right off the bat to try to make sure you can hear this amazingly rare recording.

And, oddly enough, a copy from a Japanese website.

    Can anyone tell me why people are reporting that they listen to her over and over, some said 15 times. I'm doing it myself. There is something very special going on here and I'd like to hear from someone who knows what this phenomenon is that has us all wrapped up.

      She is real. She's genuine. She can be the person next door, that goes unnoticed. She's not only a huge talent but she's teaching us a tremendous lesson about where real beauty lies. She embodies it. What a breath of fresh air!

    Personally, I believe it's a combination of a few elements. I know for me I love the fact that she had an "in your face" moment on a television show that has reported 14M+ viewers for some episodes. According to the few media articles and TV events I've seen, she's had a pretty rough life and that seems to be reflected somewhat in her appearance, which is what we as a society base our initial assumptions of a person on. That initial assumption was blown away by her voice and talent, of course. That's called retribution and is something I think many of us crave from time to time and is something that we can achieve vicariously through Susan's performance. The second thing that keeps drawing me back is her obvious talent. It's surprising and undeniable, a powerful combination. The last thing that I love about the clip is her genuine and somewhat naive response to the judges' reaction to her performance. I keep thinking that she HAD to know she was going to knock them out of their seats, but at the end of the clip I'm always convinced that she honestly didn't realize the depth of her gift. Someone with that amount of talent who seems to an equal amount humbleness can easily endear themselves in other people's hearts, which is exactly what she has done to mine. She seems to be a lovely woman, yet is also a force to be reckoned and I LOVE her!

    I am a huge fan of Barbra Streisand, but so sorry Barbra, Susan's rendition of 'Cry me a river' blows your's out of the park. Get that cd out fast, I can't wait!

    OK. This took me a while to figure out, but here is my take on the Susan Boyle phenom: In the first part of the clip, we see and hear a lady expressing herself just the way she is, because she cannot pretend to be anything she is not. We also hear the judges get some lifelong background from her, and allow her to state her singing talent objectives, capped with "I'm gonna rock this audience," which, as we all agree, she does-just like an earthquake rocks the mountains! Then Simon asks "OK, What's the dream?" and she tells him in her own words that she wants to be recognized as a singer, as good as Elaine Paige, which, up to this point, seems naive. She then blows the cobwebs out of the amps in the theatre, and the Judges change their tune, giving her the credit she is due. Finally, she shows her humble nature again as she realized her dream. Did I get this right?
