Susan Boyle: as successful as the Beatles?

Written by Nae mair crap

Susan Boyle, the Scottish singer, has now topped the album charts, simultaneously, in the UK and the USA.

To be precise, Susan has done this, not once but twice in the space of a year: first with the "I Dreamed a Dream" album and now with her follow up album, "The Gift."

Does that make Susan as successful as the Beatles, as some are claiming in the media? Not really, there is no comparison and Susan might be the first to say, "Get real!!"

That is not to diminish her achievement. Two albums, best sellers on both sides of the Atlantic, is a dream most successful singers would not believe. As many of us know, the US is a graveyard for many UK singers.

Susan's achievements are astonishing. Her success owes much to Susan's worldwide fanbase, be they fanatics or the more grounded fans.

Congratulations, Susan.
