Listen to This
Amy Winehouse kicks ass. For real. I don't listen to the radio so I don't know if you've heard
her or not. But, she's amazing. I kept seeing her and hearing about her and thinking that she looked like a cartoon character.
Then, when i was buying some CDs the other day, my curiosity took over and I listened to the samples. I was just blown away!!
It's jazzy and the beats are great and her vocals are astonishing. I really COULD NOT believe that voice came out of that skinny little punk looking gal with the waaaaay teased hair and the obnoxious tatoos. But, her voice is so amazing and different. That's what I love.
I'm a fan of all different types of music. I love old rock like Fleetwood Mac, Lynard Skynard, CCR, Allman Brothers, etc. I love old country like Willie, Merle, George and Dolly. And new country too. I love old jazz ladies like Ella Fitzgerald and Billie Holiday. I love pop and rock and alternative and Louisiana stuff. I love stuff like Nirvana, Ozzy, Smashing Pumpkins, Fergie, Justin Timberlake, The Doors, The Who, and my fav Widespread Panic. So, you see, I run the gamut with music.
But, Miss Beehive Winehouse is different and her CD is just fabulous. When I got it in, I was going to get Luke and myself food and I jammed. I didn't want to come home! Luke was on the front porch when I pulled in and he was shaking his head. He does not think it's ok to "car dance" or dance anywhere in public for that matter. And I am really the total opposite. If i'm jamming in the car and I see someone looking- I turn it up and rock on!! Luke knows this. So, when I got out of the car he wanted to know what I was listening to and I told him. He had seen her too but never heard her. He was impressed.
So, have you heard her? What do you think?
