Congratulations to Amy Winehouse on her multiple victories at this year's Grammy's! I honestly love the woman, and commend her for everything. "Back to Black" is one of my favorite Amy tracks, as it sounds beautifully morbid - it's an audio equivalent of a funeral directed by Scorsese. I've always wanted to play with the ironic potential of this song... therefore, I had Amy sing over the lovely boy-hating Origliasso sisters of The Veronicas' "Hook Me Up" and teamed her up with resident angry girl Kelly Clarkson's angsty guitars from "Never Again" all into one glob of bouncy bitterness. Ah, I love angry white girls this early in the morning.
