More Spiritual Songs from Simon Cowell

After hitting the Christmas No.1 last year with Hallelujah, another Cowell protegee is selling her CD faster than anyone else this year, and might even do better than Leona Lewis. Probably best to pause this when the music stops....

This isn't really my style of music, but heard it on Radio 2 the other day and thought it was beautiful. Strange to then discover that Wild Horses is a Rolling Stones song.

Christian Today have the track listing for Susan Boyles CD, with comments about what the songs mean to her, including several hymns. I think it's a shame that there's a different record company to deal with the 'Christian' market - come on folks, get out of your pigeon holes. Good music stands on its own two feet without needing some spurious label put on it. Crikey, I'm starting to sound like the British Humanist Association. Bye.

  1. Yep, the Christians come in and screw it up again...! Totally agree and what is more insidious is despite what they (Integrity... pah?!) say are ONLY doing it from a commercial perspective that potentially will 'cost' Susan Boyle higher chart postions.... So much more I could (and will eventually) bleat on about them!

    I'm not obsessed, obsessed I am not!
