Morning Coffee

Amy Winehouse still on the brain. I would have loved to have post a live version of this, but for me, she never comes across quite as well live. Her voice is still there, but there's something about the energy that just doesn't come across. I don't know enough about music to say why. 


The dirt you hear in her music just doesn't seem to hit in the same way. OK, that was the most awkward sentence ever. Just sayin...

Anyway, this is a great, great song.
