    Welcome, GeriWho -- you're right in time for the any-minute announcement of album #7! Did you know that Susan is planning to do a small tour of Europe, I guess following the release? You might even get a chance to meet her!

I don't want to fill the fan site pages with nonsense. Despite my lack of input I admire enormously every thing Susan has achieved since that fateful night on BGT, but I'm not a real fan, there I've said it, I've come out of the closet. I admire her voice, the way she can change the age of her voice e.g. Mad World, her sense of humour, her humility, well everything except, takes deep breath before continuing, except her choice of music, far too many slow tunes for my liking, but more on that subject later.

    I may not be a true fan of Susan's but I'm a fan of this fan site, I think I can lay claim to being the site's only 'groupie'. I'm a daily visitor to get all the latest news on Susan, and there are no shortage of correspondents to keep me up to date. I marvel at CB's posters, and like CB I have Paint Shop Pro so I try to figure out how he has achieved certain effects. Tweek's buttons are a delight to behold. In fact this fan site is populated by very talented people. I specialise in lurking myself.

    Back to the choice of music that Susan sings. I have no sense of adventure when it comes to music so Susan's version of Somewhere Over the Rainbow left me cold, why change a perfectly good melody, it wasn't broke. Unchained Melody was never a favourite of mine, she sang it even slower than the original, and there are other songs that don't appeal which don't come readily to mind. So what do I like? 'Susan Sings Cole Porter' that I would buy. His lyrics are magical and melodies are memorable. Shut your eyes and hear Susan singing 'In the Still of the Night' as a beguine, up the tempo a bit for 'Anything Goes' then slow it down again for 'Night and Day'. There's no charge for all this BTW. How about Irvin Berlin or Jerome Kern, you get my drift. Cover songs sung by Billie Holiday. Like I said, I've no sense of adventure. One last addition, she has to sneak in 'Fame' somewhere, I'm with RIK on this. It's only a song, and Susan sings songs.

    So there you have it, JayBea's take on the musical world of Susan Boyle. You can tell by the spelling that I'm from the UK, though I haven't lived there for forty years, I'm as far away from the UK as I can get. I used to live in Edinburgh but never travelled on the A6 (I think I'm correct) that would have taken me to Blackburn.

    Just in case you are wondering, I'm a fella, and I lived through the abdication of Edward Vlll. I'll leave you to do the sums.

    JayBea -- you are the ONLY other person I have ever read of here who feels as I do about "Somewhere Over The Rainbow". The original melody is so gorgeous and it is one of my very favorite songs ever. I was so much anticipating Susan singing this and was so disappointed in the version she chose to do. I also have the same feeling about "Imagine". Susan changed the melody in that one, too, which disappoints me, as I love that song, too. However, everything else she does thrills me. I do agree with you that she needs a change in tempo in the future. Hoping for some upbeat songs in her next CD #7.
