First Impressions: You Won't 'Cry' At Amy Winehouse's 'Party'

Tuesday, November 2, 2010

Everyone who has ever heard snatches of Back To Black or Frank can all fully agree on one thing: that we want Amy Winehouse to release another got damn album---with a lopsided beehive, smeared cat eye liner, and all. Well, today we have to just settle for her rendition of Leslie Gore's "It's My Party", the long chatted about collaboration with Mark Ronson that is appearing on Quincy Jones' upcoming collaboration project, Soul Bossa Nostra. And if this is settling...then gimmie frackin' more. Amy blazes through this two-and-a-half minute swinger as she peppers her gravely sly voice into the mix of brass and piano keys. She does what we expect her to do---truly revamp a song that has a little dust on it, and wipe off the dust she does. This is the Amy Winehouse we've been all itching to hear, so go stop reading my yap, and press play now.
