Voices of the Beehive

Apparently, troubled pop diva my girlfriend Amy Winehouse won a bunch of Grammy's last night. Good for you, babe!

For those of you who have yet to figure out what the fuss is all about, here's Amy (with Modfather Paul Weller) doing a splendid job of chanelling Gladys Knight in a recent live version of the Motown classic "Heard It Through the Grapevine. Go ahead, tell me this woman isn't the real deal. Go ahead -- I dare you.



Incidentally, I just received a $15 check from the Village Voice for a Winehouse joke I contributed to this year's Voice Critic's Poll [scroll down]. I couldn't be more proud, frankly.

Speaking of Gladys Knight, I'd love to hear her do "If I Were Your Woman."

Or better yet, Weller doing "If You Were My Woman" (I've always thought that song was actually written for a man)...

Yep. She's terrific.

Still don't like the hair-do.

While I've always been a fan of a good brain numbing evening out on the town, I do wish for her own sake that she's able to pull out of the rather ugly and tabloided tailspin she's currently in. Don't get me wrong, I really do like her voice and style.

A female Keith perhaps, but his staying power is unmatched.

When he fell out of that coconut tree last year KR was quoted as saying, and I paraphrase, "Nothing can kill me...I'm polytoxic".

Amy has a few miles to go before she's quite in Keef's league.

Just sayin'.

For fifteen bucks, it's by definition a cheap joke.

Of the new generation Amy & Sharon Jones are carrying the torch right now.

I think Amy is just like the girls who use to work behind the counter at Tabachnick's on Cedar Lane back in the seventies.

That's a compliment!

I don't remember the girls, but the cornedbeef was fantastic.

Memo to Winehouse:

When you've done so much crack that your tits have fallen off, don't wear strapless dresses.

Oh, and while I never got to Tabachnick's (my BIL nearly married the daughter of the family, apparently), a friend from Teaneck took me to a great record store that I think was just across the street.

Teaneck's my home town, but I don't remember a record store on Cedar Lane any time after the 60s. When was this?

return of the plumber said...

Steve could comment better, but I do remember the record store across the street from Tabachnicks and just down the street from the movie theater. I bought The Yardbirds "Live at the Anderson Theater LP there.

Re; Teaneck record shop. I think it was there into the early to mid 70's. not as got as Relix in Hackensack or the Paramus Sam Goody's.

TMink said...

Almost thou persuadest me to be a fan Steve.

Paramus Sam Goody's.

I bought almost all of my records either there or at the store in Hackensack on Main Street (I grew up in New Milford).

MBowen said...

There was a record store (full of bootlegs and other goodys) on Cedar Lane as late as Thanksgiving 1976 - my buddy from Teaneck took me there.
