wild horses

Susan Boyle’s graceful, prepossessing rendition of the Rolling Stones’ Wild Horses just hit the airwaves. Here, I’ve matched it up with a 1930’s photo of a man who, in my mind, won’t leave his lover, despite everything.

I watched you suffer a dull aching pain
Now you decided to show me the same
No sweeping exits or offstage lines
Could make me feel bitter or treat you unkind

Wild horses couldn’t drag me away


Song: Wild Horses, from Susan Boyle’s debut album I Dreamed a Dream,
due 23 November
Text: Wild Horses, excerpt, Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, 1971
