Music Mom Loves

Can I just say that I just love Amy Winehouse? A twentysomething English girl with a voice of a 50-year old Black woman. Some say her style is an affectation, much like Alanis Morissette's yodel voice that curiously disappeared after her first album. I don't know. I'm not a music critic. Even if it's a put on, it's a really good one.

She's wrapped up in the tragic-blues-singer-hooked-on-drugs-and-the-wrong-men thing right now. And the beehive and the eyeliner are silly gimmicks that she does not need. I guess it's all about standing out and having a distinctive image. Whatever. I just hope she gets it together 'cause she is really, really good. Where did a little girl like her get all that soul?
