    She really has a terrific voice. You don't hear people sing like her very often.

    Seconded. Heard this recently and liked it.

    Maybe she is one of these.

    Her hits (thus far) are on the front side of Back to Black, and I was surprised to find the back half of the album was equally as good as, if not better than, the front.

    Bingo. I love the sixties horn section sound.

    Sadly, I think this song may be a bit too autobiographical based on what I have read on the web.

    Similar illegal substances?

    She's an interesting talent, but she's not alone in the blue-eyed soul songstress genre. Nikka Costa (god-daughter to Sly Stone), Madeleine Peyroux (channeling Billie Holliday and plays jazz guitar), Joss Stone (give the devil his due; the girl can sang!) are a few.

    I'm a better songstress than Miss Winehouse.

    Allison Moyet.

    And to throw in two guys: Rick Astley and Green Gartside.

    Oh, I forgot to mention: I quite like this album also. I really like the remix of Rehab with Jay-Z in it.

    There is one track though that is a complete Marvin Gaye rip. But I can't remember which (hers or his).
