Living on my own planet

Sometimes I wonder if I live on my own planet. The current reason this thought is going through my head is because I only got to listen to Amy Winehouse’s fantastic album Back to Black last weekend on our way to the beach.

The album is a gem in every sense of the word! Winehouse’s voice is so powerful that it gives you goosebumps instantly. Her breathtaking album was released last year and it took me all this time to get around to listening to it.

I was really blown away by the talent of this young British soul singer who according to The New Yorker is "a fierce English performer whose voice combines the smoky depths of a jazz chanteuse with the heated passion of a soul singer." From Rehab to You Know I’m No Good to Back to Black, every song on this album is a hit! Really, where was I all this time? How could I have missed such an incredible talent? Time to leave the planet!

    I haven’t climbed on the Winehouse bandwagon just yet. While I think her voice is definetly unique, and somewhat fresh, I’m not her biggest fan. In time, though, I could be. Some artists to check out when not on “Planet Natasha” are: The Shins, The Decemberists, and G Love and Special Sauce.
