Susan Boyle on Britain's Got Talent

Britain really has great talents. It was like watching a breaking news on Inside Edition where I first saw Susan Boyle , 47. She got three "yes" from the judges including Simon Cowell who was also amazed by her pleasant voice. Watching the video , you will see some of the audience are not quite impressed at first , obviously judging her appearance , but they were all stunned by her impressive voice while singing "I Dreamed a Dream" from the broadway musical "Les Miserables". I was also laughing at first when I saw the title of the episode , "Leave Her Hair Alone". Maybe she will rise to stardom someday like Paul Potts.

I Don't Know How to Love Him

They play this song once in a blue moon on my favorite radio station which is known for streaming mostly classic and mellow music. It's been a while since I heard the song until I saw the performance of Ms. Dulce together with two singers that I already forgot the name, on a variety show last Sunday. I said to myself that I should post that beautiful song here.

"I Don't Know How to Love Him" is a song which was originally featured on the #1 album Jesus Christ Superstar , released in October of 1970. Yvonne Elliman was the original recording artist of this fantastic song. Since then , a lot of famous artists revived the song and included it on their album. These includes Helen Reddy , Petula Clark , Bonnie Tyler and Sinead O' Connor to name a few. I even saw another version @ you tube performed by Ms. Lea Salonga and I found it amazing also but I decided to post here the original version by Yvonne which I loved most. A song which suits the sacredness of the Holy Week.


...Close your eyes close your eyes
and forget all about us tonight.


I don't know how to love him.
What to do, how to move him.
I've been changed, yes really changed.
In these past few days, when I've seen myself,
I seem like someone else.
I don't know how to take this.
I don't see why he moves me.
He's a man. He's just a man.
And I've had so many men before,
In very many ways,
He's just one more.
Should I bring him down?
Should I scream and shout?
Should I speak of love,
Let my feelings out?
I never thought I'd come to this.
What's it all about?
Don't you think it's rather funny,
I should be in this position.
I'm the one who's always been
So calm, so cool, no lover's fool,
Running every show.
He scares me so.
I never thought I'd come to this.
What's it all about?
Yet, if he said he loved me,
I'd be lost. I'd be frightened.
I couldn't cope, just couldn't cope.
I'd turn my head. I'd back away.
I wouldn't want to know.
He scares me so.
I want him so.
I love him so.
