Last to the party
Am I the last person to hear about Amy Winehouse?! Have you heard her Back to Black CD? It's great! She has a nonchalant/Ronette/Motown/Shirley Bassey thing going on that is killin' me. (I realize these references may not seem like a ringing endorsement, for the kids out there, but ya gotta trust me here.) She is the embodiment of Diana Ross' bad seed granddaughter, which incidentally, is my idea of a dream Supreme. If the voice isn't enough she's got some great 60's horns and hand claps that are retro in the best of all ways. I'd post a sample here but I'm too lame to know how to do that. Just click the Audio/Video link on her website for a sample. She's apparently only 23 years old. I shudder to recall what I was up to at 23. Ugh!
Here's her song Rehab. Go, go, go.
