Amy Winehouse

Do yourself a favor, check this chick out.

Amy Winehouse released her newest CD in England in October 2006, but Back to Black makes its American debut next Tuesday.

She's a young Brit, but her tunes sound more like they were just discovered in an old Motown vault hiding the era's best soul tunes.

My first ever blog friend, Micah, introduced me to Amy Winehouse several months ago in a mix cd, and her voice has infected my brain ever since.

Her voice is smoky, longing and belying of her 23-year-young age.

Winehouse will make you tap your toes, bop in your office cubicle and think back to your own melancholy past.

I am especially in love with her tune, Rehab. Perhaps Britney gave it a listen?

Thanks for the shoutout. I also snagged her first CD - Frank. It sounds more contemporary, but it's still good. Not as good as Back to Black, mind you. I have a feeling you'd like "Fuck Me Pumps".
