The guessing game has already begun for new songs in the next Susan Boyle album. Here are some of my ideas about cover versions she might try. Let me know your suggestions.
“The Rose” made famous by Bette Midler — one of the great songs which would be wonderful to hear Susan touch the highnotes .
“Crying In the Chapel” by Elvis Presley — A wonderful love ballad made famous by the King himself – putty in Susan's hands
“The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face” by Roberta Flack — One of the greatest love songs of all time and one that would suit Susan's incredible voice range.
“Close to You” — By The Carpenters, and again a wonderful love ballad that has that certain Susan-quality to it. A must sing.
“Red is the Rose” — Wonderful old Irish ballad that Susan would naturally fit. One I'd personally love to hear.
“The Dutchman” — One of the greatest love songs of all time about a woman and her husband who is slowly slipping into dementia. Written by Michael Smith but made famous by Liam Clancy of the Clancy brothers who just passed away.
“City of New Orleans” — Steve Goodman's creation made famous by Arlo Guthrie, a big old fashioned song that Susan might belt out of the park.
“Lost in Your Eyes” — By Debbie Gibson Debbie Gibson's love ballad is so basic that its genius is that it is such a simple song.
“Panis Angelicus” — Beautiful old church hymn made famous again by Pavarotti. Love to hear Susan tackle it.
“Something” — By the Beatles. Frank Sinatra once described it as the best song ever written, Susan deserves to sing it.
