Susan Boyle Channels Depeche Mode?
One of my favorite songs ever is "Enjoy the Silence" by Depeche Mode.
That initial success led to a big recording career for Boyle. And I"m so glad, she deserves it. I've always rooted for her.
However, I usually don't like remakes of my favorite songs. And though Boyle has an awesome voice, I couldn't imagine her taking a crack at Depeche Mode. Kind of like mixing hamburger and ice cream for dinner.
But once again Boyle was underestimated. By me this time. Turns out her Depeche Mode remake is awesome. Compare the two versions for yourself.
