Reply to "Amy Winehouse"

Yes, I liked that line too and thought of our own Ms. Hathaway.

I also really love 'Back to Black' which is very Phil Spector. Her beehive and eyeliner are very Ronnie Spector, aren't they? I have to confess I don't know a lot about Spector and his 'wall of sound' other than his work with the Ramones and as the crazy guy on trial with the crazy hair. Watching some of those Youtube interviews with Amy Winehouse, though, she references the Crystals song "He Hit Me and It Felt Like A Kiss" (Co-Written by Carole King(?!) and arranged by Spector) so its safe to say he is probably an influence. Amy likes the song and says that even though most people would find it offensive because it is about domestic violence, she understands it completely. She has certainly earned her 'blues chops' at a young age, that's for sure.
