F--k Me Pumps

  • A track from Amy Winehouse's debut album, this is a swaggering attack on bimbos who hang out in clubs. The title is an expression for the kind of footwear favored by these girls. When Frank was released, many critics compared Amy's sound to smoky singers of the past like Billie Holliday, and this song proved that she had a contemporary edge to go with her vintage sound.
  • A radio edit was produced removing the word "F--k." >>
