So I Broke Down And Bought Susan Boyle

First of all, can you believe that Susan Boyle is projected to sell more than Adam Lambert, Lady Gaga and Rihanna combined by next week with I Dreamed A Dream?

Second of all, Rihanna—flop city, apparently. Guess throwing three grim dirges against the wall at once wasn't such a hot promo tactic?

Fifthly, on a total impulse buy, I snuck into Amoeba today and plunked down $12 for the Susan Boyle CD. Total impulse buy. My shame is only made less severe by knowing that some 600,000 Americans (not to mention the hundreds of thousands of Brits) are said to be doing exactly the same thing.

I did it all for "Daydream Believer."

    Love how Susie's poised for #1 whilst Rihobot is left eating dumpster bagels. What the hell was up with RiRi's shit single, anyway? It's almost like she wanted to flop.

    love how susan boyle has taken over the world by basically being judged as not attractive by the Britain's Got Talent judges and then being better than expected when she sang, but still only an average singer over all! GENIUS! :)

    Nobody tops Anne Murray's version of "Daydream Believer." NOBODY.
