Well that wasn't what I expected at all

I'd heard a couple songs from Amy Winehouse, and Mrs. N-B even downloaded her album with the big hit "Rehab" on it. But no amount of listening could've prepared me for seeing a picture of her.

Her voice is so big and sultry that I had it in my head she would look like Shirley Bassey, whose searing vocals make the Goldfinger song my favorite James Bond theme.

Here's a picture of Shirley Bassey so you could see what I was expecting.

So you can imagine my surprise when I saw what Winehouse looks like.

She's like a rooster on heroin. In the words of one of the celebrity blogs that I admit to reading: If I saw her walking in my yard at night I'd skip the warning shot because I'd assume she wanted to eat my brain.

I as well fell for this clever ruse....expected a portly negress, found an emaciated limette. No wonder they lost their empire.

As for the song, it reminds me of Camden Yards: a thoroughly competent attempt at replica, but a mere replica nonetheless. I'll stick with Holyfield Motown.

This isn't always what she's looked like
