Random Songs From My Phone – Duffy – “Serious”

I had a serious infatuation with Duffy’s voice back about 4 or 5 years ago.  Her debut album “Rockferry” is one of those stunning debut records that show incredible potential.  She came on the scene with an entire bevy of English female singer songwriters that quickly took over the airwaves.  Think Amy Winehouse and Adele.  In many ways, Duffy was the Animals to the others Beatles and Stones.  Very good, but not at the top of the heap.  Unfortunately, she lost me with the release of her second album in 2010 called “Endlessly”.  Still, Rockferry will be an enduring classic and should be in your collection.  songs such as this “Serious” will likely be timeless and enduring.

  1. I don’t now. I was briefly caught up when she debuted, but since then, I haven’t heard anything from her that’s grabbed me.
    Not sure what’s worse – sounding derivative, or wasting potential.

    • I have always had a theory on first vs second records. A performer had many years to hone and fine tune several songs to the point of being discovered. The second one is much more rushed and all the best material was on the first. Many fail on number 2.
