365 Days of the Unoriginal, Day 13: If It’s Tuesday, It’s Ukulele Time!

365 Days of the Unoriginal, Day 7: A Winehouse and Cheese Party!

Today’s offering is a fairly silly, overdone cover of “Love is a Losing Game,” from Amy Winehouse’s Back to Black album. I have a real soft spot for the sound of Back to Black — it’s an amazing bit of work, and I … Continue reading
