Wild Horses

Susan Boyle’s new song is a Rolling Stones classic. And her version is fab! Mick and the boys must be very pleased that she chose this song to be part of her first album.

Her singing has benefitted from any coaching she has had during the few months since she last sang for us. This is a great song for her to sing and she has addressed it with exactly the right emotional tone. If you haven’t yet heard it do it here now!

And go out and buy it – let’s make her dream come true.

For the Stones own ‘stripped’ version you can see a video clip here.

The lyrics suggest to me anyway that Susan is not actually as daft as some might think. All those raised eyebrows at her first appearance did not go unnoticed. And of course she may well have the last laugh if her recording career really takes off now.

The Lyrics:-

Childhood living is easy to do
The things you wanted I bought them for you
Graceless lady you know who I am
You know I can’t let you slide through my hands

Wild horses couldn’t drag me away
Wild, wild horses, couldn’t drag me away

I watched you suffer a dull aching pain
Now you decided to show me the same
No sweeping exits or offstage lines
Could make me feel bitter or treat you unkind

Wild horses couldn’t drag me away
Wild, wild horses, couldn’t drag me away

I know I dreamed you a sin and a lie
I have my freedom but I don’t have much time
Faith has been broken, tears must be cried
Lets do some living after we die

Wild horses couldn’t drag me away
Wild, wild horses, well ride them some day

Wild horses couldn’t drag me away
Wild, wild horses, we’ll ride them some day
