Amy Winehouse awaits your intervention

154914__rehab_lShe looks like ’60s girl-group icon Ronnie Spector, sings like a gin-soaked ’40s jazz queen, and writes lyrics that could serve as a soundtrack for every unsuspecting subject of A&E’s Intervention. Check out the chart-topping U.K. single "Rehab" from British chanteuse Amy Winehouse.

Her album comes out in the States early next year on Virgin Records, and an NYC show in January sold out in about a minute; plus, she’s already been favored by arbiters of taste like Hot Chip and Ghostface Killah, who’ve both remixed and sampled her work.

Aside from the single’s spicy topic, Winehouse does seem to come from the "moon/soon" school of simple-rhyme songwriting, but the horns, the production — that voice! — have us sold. You too?

    My ex-boyfriend gave me this cd as a pseudo-parting gift and I’ve been addicted since. She is phenominal and just about every song is about heartbreat…how appropriate.

  • Preston

    I have never heard of this one…
    but wow, is she amazing or what? Can’t wait for the album to cross the pond!

  • will

    damn…these 2 artists on here today are unbeatable

    I heard her song “F*** Me Pumps” (gotta be work-appropriate here) in a store one day, went home and googled the lyrics, and have been a fan ever since. She herself kind of scares me, but I love the music.

    I’ve been YouTubing Ms. Winehouse’s videos all morning. “Rehab” was so good that I found and bought her album “Back to Black” (only $19.48 and free shipping at, if anybody is interested). She’s amazing! Thank you, Leah!

    oh, wows….she’s brilliant!!! like etta james reincarnated!

  • Steve

    This song has been everywhere here in the UK and it’s awesome (the rest of the album is patchy).
    Oh, and she’s borderline insane, but that adds to her charm.

  • Delon

    Rehab is superb. I can’t say the same thing for the whole album though. Since she is very young and super talented i believe she will have masterpiece albums in her future. Still until that day comes this one is way above the moronic, insincere, synthetic stuff that plagues our eardrums!!! I think Lily Allen is stupid and fake. I’ll take Amy over Lily anyday.

    Great song, love it–but is it just me or does she look like Janice from Friends? (Chandler’s on and off girlfriend)
