I can't help but to dance and sing with it.

There are just a couple of Duffy's songs because I don't particularly care for all songs she's famous for.

Nice husky voice with good lyrics and music.

Duffy's "Mercy" is brash,blue-eyed British soul. Her ode to sexual liberation is as feisty as Dusty Springfield's "Son of a Preacher Man." She sings with gusto and passion. Duffy, with her retro sound, is an Amy Winehouse without the baggage. Her song is reminiscent of the '60s. One can imagine the bell bottoms, the psychedelia, and the Beatles in their heyday. "Mercy" is soulful. Have mercy,indeed!

re: Duffy's Mercy mp3 from Amazon

Quality of the mp3 is rough sounding. There is NO headroom; the original source sounds rough, as if the levels were clipped -- they certainly are in this mp3. The encoder does not use gapless metadata that can be found in LAME and even Apple's iTunes (for mp3) encoders, but compared to the lack of quality of THIS PARTICULAR mp3 (only one I have bought), that's secondary.

No lyrics, yes jpeg pic. Rest of id3 (both 2.3 and 1.1) is there. I don't know if the CD track of "Mercy" is better; I can only hope so but I'm sure it too is too "hot" only to sound louder, distortion be damned. Take a look at the signal levels and you can see there is practically no dynamic range - everything is LOUD and volume-compressed, even the parts where she is trying to be soft it's still LOUD. Rarely is there any point where the level is less than 3 dB from max. No wonder it sounds so bad.

This sounds like something from back in the soul days. The only part that I don't like is the middle where she's speaking really fast over her own voice, but otherwise it's good. If you like a soulful sound and catchy tunes, then this song is for you. Also, remember to preview the song before you buy.

Up and coming Artist, Duffy, has crossed the pond.
Her performance on Ellen has me intrigued.
"Mercy" has a rocky feel, and if I didn't know better, I'd believe she is from another era. It's hard pop, a little rock star, and jazzy all at once!

Perfection. Her voice is so unordinary and beautiful. Soft and simple. Great cover recording. I have never heard her sing a bad song.

If this song doesn't get you moving...nothing will. Try it, and you'll be hooked. The song compels one to include it in every party mix.

This is my favorite song from Duffy so far. She's very talented, and she reminds me of the "old school" singers with that raspy bluesy sound.

Love this song. She's got a great voice and soul to go with it. Hope she does more songs like this.
