What a voice! What a mouth!

So, while we have the chance, let us salute not just that song, but its author. Ames has been in trouble of late - first for heckling Bono at the Q Awards (mid-way through his list of thanks, she said "Shut up. I don't give a fuck," which is not exactly Wildean, though it will do), and then thanks to a rum old duet with Charlotte Church on the latter's TV show. (For anyone who missed it, the pair did their thing on a version of Michael Jackson's Beat It, for which Amy tumbled well away from metre, precise diction and other such trifles and played a strange kind of blinder. You can find out more by going on YouTube and looking for "Church, Winehouse", and you will laugh until it hurts.)
