Mercy - Duffy

A great song and great performance
So, is the artist Mercy or Duffy?

(Folks, doing it Artist, "Song" means there's no ambiguity.)
Even in 08, UK can have a #1 hit that I have no awareness of.
Number one all over the world but only made 27 in America. I see a pattern emerging here...

I didn’t know it was that successful? I bought the album because I liked the Warwick Avenue single.

The singer is Duffy the song is Mercy.
Thanks muchly.

Other than just being a great song, it precedes female empowerment hip hop that is quite the rage these days (see "WAP" as very current example).
Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.

Everything is derivative now unless you play Peruvian nose flute dubstep. The only thing to look forward to is the past, as someone once sang.

Just listened. It's the poor woman's Amy Winehouse. Or the rich woman's Meghan Trainor.

It was the era of Amy soundalikes. Gabriella Cilmi was another one. Her big hit "Sweet About Me" is really rather great.
