yes, i like female vocalists with pretty songs and big voices*. duffy is no exception.

i liked mercy, but i really fell in love with warwick avenue. this led for my friends and myself to conclude that duffy got it. heartbreak and the rest.

my favourite song? rockferry. there's something about that dramatic piano and...the entire song that draws me to it. it could be seen as rather melancholic? either way, it's bloody gorgeous. i could listen to it all day and it's the perfect accompaniment for walking around alone. (i've always said that, because of my tendency to have my ipod stuck in my ears a lot [i'm sociable, i just love music], i should live in a musical...) i also love hanging on too long - another song that gets it.

we do not speak of the fact we did not see duffy on tour last year. we are still in the midst of devestation.

*i am actually very eclectic. look at my! (and ignore the fact that a lot of my most played is nerina...)
like a lot of music i grow to love, i discover the artists randomly. as i said about me discovering a fine frenzy by thinking the cover of her album was interesting, i discovered the absolutely wonderful, talented and AWESOME nerina/narnia pallot simply because i heard one of her songs in a shop.

said song: 'all good people.' i heard it several times in 2006 then, when shopping in kingston at the end of the year, i heard it AGAIN and tried to google what i could hear of the lyrics (tried this before and it just drew a blank) and i finally found it <3 then got hold of 'fires' and 'dear frustrated superstar' and fell in love. i've even got some of my friends loving her music :)

my favourite song isn't clearly defined...i love so many of them! just listen to this song & you'll see what i mean:

her lyrics, music & general being just work. yes, i'm gushing! but i don't mind :)

she sounds just like a recording live, if not better. if her october tour is coming anywhere near you, I RECOMMEND HER FOR A FANTASTIC EVENING. i got my special study/dissertation result the day i saw her so you know that she's great ;)

SO EXCITED FOR HER NEW ALBUM. 'the graduate' is (apparently) out on the 5th october (SO buying it in dundee! ... but that's another story) and 'everything's illuminated' is hopefully going to be on it... &
