No proof, but from here forward I will subtly refer to him as Michael Crack-son.

 
Or perhaps My-that's-a-nice Crack-son.

Ok, here's one more for the tasteless pile:


Maybe her name should have been Any Winehouse.

I finally heard an Amy Winehouse song, the other day. "Rehab." I thought it sucked and am stunned that it was (correct me if I'm wrong...?) really fucking popular. I feel bad that she died, of course, but it makes the outpouring of grief sort of hard for me to comprehend and contextualize. Did millions of people really fall in love with that song, when it was initially released? Somebody fill me in.

And I'm not trolling. I'm just curious. I don't really pay any attention to the pop charts, and am simply having trouble reconciling the song's popularity with the nature of what I (apparently/totally mis-)understand as modern popular music. RIP, etc., but I'm confused. And ignorant, obviously. Inform me.

Wow, Amy must really be proliferating radio right now if Shouter heard Rehab. Are they transmitting her music underground?

Amy Winehouse DEAD!

Am I nobody to you?

He also brought Anita Pallenberg into the mix, so there's that.

Was there a lot of stuff that sounded "like this" getting play, at the time, or was she kind of the only one going that route? It just feels, like, garishly out of step with the vast, overwhelming majority of the pop radio I sort of know, from the last five or so years.

Also, perhaps contrary to popular belief, YouTube still is not the radio. But who knows what tomorrow will bring?

It was out of step. And it was this retro style combined with trendy production that made it unique.

I think her rendition of an Ella Fitzgerald standard is a pretty great display of her vocal talent, which she'll be remembered for more than her writing:

You are definitely someone. I should have said "hardly anyone."

I'm just reading the August issue of Q and they have an article on Rock & Roll's biggest boozers. Any Winehouse came in at #6 on the list. Everyone has a status listed by their name (deceased, sober, etc.) and they have her down for "unknown."

Obviously went to press before last week. Nice timing on the article, Q.

BTW, Rock & Roll's #1 boozer is...
