Stream: Susan Boyle covers Depeche Mode’s ‘Enjoy the Silence’ for upcoming album

Susan Boyle, the “Britain’s Got Talent” phenom recently described by The Sun as “the Highland lassie with the big hits and the hairy chassis,” has covered Depeche Mode’s “Enjoy the Silence” for her new album Someone to Watch Over Me — and Rolling Stone this morning premiered an exclusive stream of the singer’s easy-listening makeover of the 1990 synthpop smash. Check it out at the link below — at your own risk.

STREAM: Susan Boyle, “Enjoy the Silence”






  1. I’m sure there will be jokes, but I am impressed. She has an amazing voice and this version is properly haunting. Still love the original best though :)

  2. atrocious

  3. I’m blown away by this…its really good…her voice is amazing.

  4. I can take the covers by Failure and Tori Amos, but I can’t take this one. Bless Susan Boyle for trying something different, but I didn’t like it.

  5. It coulda been good. Instead it’s pretty linear and goes nowhere.
    Maybe “personal jeezuz” as the b-side to redeem this.

    Tis enough to make you hang up the headphones.

  7. This is not bad at all. I wonder how many of the haters would feel differently if no one told them it was Susan Boyle before they heard it.

  8. Would have been more excited if she’d covered “Master and Servant” as a duet with Marc Almond.

  9. Not bad at all.

  10. James Robinson

    It’s not great but it’s pretty decent. Sounds to me alot like Liza Minelli and PSB’s album. Very “So Sorry I Said”

  11. That’s how this song would be performed by Depeche Mode has not changed the creative process of Alan Martin Gore –
