Britain's Got Talent: Susan Boyle is not a very good singer, calm down everybody
Art is what you like. If you don’t like this kind of art, then go back to the punk rockers or rappers you feel most affinity to.
That is one person’s opinion. Ignore the “man behind the curtain” and make your own decision on whether or not she is a good singer.
She doesn’t fit the mold. Beautiful voice though.
I’m glad we have intellectual-types to tell us when we dont know what we are supposed to think.
By the way, check out her version of “Cry me a River”
So, the ignorant arrogant pontificators have struck again . . .
that old collectivist mentality that ignorant arrogance knows what’s best for the serfs and slaves? Sheesh.
than that clueless diatriPe ever thought of having.
Is that just a strawman assumption or do you have evidence of such affinity?
Just making stuff up is kind of childish, don't you think?
She has a great set of pipes.
Pray for America
Vincent van Gogh was not a good artist. There, that settles it. Nobody else's opinion matters.
A great voice from a face made for radio.
He HAS so be a UK Socialist. Can’t BEAR to give praise....where praise is most CERTAINLY due. In other words....he couldn’t do it, himself, so he has to act like a 6 yr old on the playground who runs to the teacher complaining that Suzy has a bigger cookie than he....and he wants it.
Sour grapes. Typical.
Anyone ever tell this person they aren’t a good writer?
“Is that just a strawman assumption or do you have evidence of such affinity?”
“Just making stuff up is kind of childish, don’t you think?”
I think they have as much right to make their assumptions and voice their opinions as you have the right to make YOUR assumptions. I understand that not everyone is as smart asd intelligent as some think they are, but neither do we have to allow someone to try to initimidate us because of our opinion as to what is or is not good music. And, for the record, I think hip hop and rap are—well, they rhyme with rap.
Absolutely beautiful! Thanks so much for posting the link!
Yes, fine, but that does not answer my question.
It was stated by Brilliant that Former MSM Viewer could "go back to the punk rockers or rappers you feel most affinity to."
Have either of you evidence of this affinity or did you just make it up?
Humble, I ignored the insinuation...
Theres a comedian here in Houston that does a bit about his fav music - “Country rap...I call it C.R.A.P.”
I think a lot of the effect with the BGT video is that everyone's reaction goes from a rolled-eyes "Sheesh!" to a raised-eyebrows "Holy Crap!". Now that she won't have that surprise factor going for her anymore, people might pay attention to where she may have weaknesses. Then again, because of the "feel good story" angle though, maybe not.
I guess they were too busy teabagging to realize that he was an A-M-A-T-E-U-R singer.....you know, not professionally trained.
The 'smart' set will, of course, listen to this silly little author and ignore their lying ears.
“That is one person’s opinion. Ignore the “man behind the curtain” and make your own decision on whether or not she is a good singer”
I haven’t seen her, except for the snippet that was on the news but I liked what I heard. A good singer is someone who can “touch” you with a song, they don’t need training to do that, but they will mostly improve with training and experience. Elvis and the Beatles were well into their careers before they were accomplished artists.
Arthur Smith (Dueling Banjos) told a story of working with Bob Wills on a recording a session, when someone came in and wanted them to listen to a demo tape. After listening to the tape, Wills said, hell the boy can’t even keep time .... that demo was by Hank Williams.
