Summer Music

Every EU summer (at least in this part of the EU), a few songs anchor themselves into the season's mental universe. It's not unusual to hear the same set wafting out of houses and parties and multiplied over a night on the many dance floors that grace this pueblo. This year's favorite is Duffy. You can see from this interview how stage managed her career is, so much so that YouTube has been restricted from allowing her videos to spread virally via embedded code. Check her video anyway, despite the mannered presentation that reminds me of early MTV -not in a good way- (dancers aflame, wuh).

Great singer, though. Comparisons to Amy Winehouse need not diminish either performer.
