Are We All Ready for Susan Boyle’s Duet with Elvis Presley?

Probably one of my least favourite things in existence is when living singers like to play Frankenstein and “duet” with dead ones using weird digital technology to overlap their voices (and even recreate their bodies in video form). It’s weird, it’s unnatural and I don’t like it. Yes, it’s a shame you never got to sing with old Blue Eyes or have a rap battle with your hero Tupac, but let these artists rest in peace, man. Given a choice, they may not even have wanted to collaborate with you!

Anyhow, I sorta digress, but not really. Our good friend SuBo has done a Christmas album, and who better to make spin in his grave but the King himself, Elvis Presley? That’s right – Susan Boyle and Elvis have done ‘O Come All Ye Faithful’ and it’s… fucking bizarre. And the video is even weirder.

Here’s what SuBo previously said about the “collaboration”:

“To put a unique twist on classic Christmas songs is truly wonderful. I grew up listening to Elvis and to sing with him, well, I didn’t think it would be possible. Isn’t technology brilliant? The track is for my father – and for Elvis.”

WEIRD! What do you think?

  • I don’t think it’s weird at all, I think they did a beautiful job with it. And all proceeds go to Save The Children. Nothing weird about that!

  • I think it’s fucking bizarre that you think this is fucking bizarre. Two beautiful voices singing a classic Christmas song, tastefully done. Their voices compliment each other nicely. The video doesn’t really seem to have anything to do with the song but it’s just a bunch of innocent children being children. What’s so weird about that? There’s nothing Frankestein about it; people still listen to Elvis and I’m pretty sure everyone knows he has passed away.

  • Weird, no. If I have to listen to auto tune, then you can listen to Nat King Cole sing with his daughter, same goes for Elvis and Susan Boyle.
