So, Mercy has already been number 1 for two weeks just on downloads and this physical release looks set to boost its success even further. Duffy looks gorgeous on the cover and the song itself is pure brilliance, a departure from the ballad Rockferry, Mercy is an uptempo gem of a track. Based around a 'Stand By Me' esque beat and an ace organ riff, like Rockferry, this is the perfect blend of the old and new - and Duffy delivers it perfectly, proof of her ingenuity and talent as an artist.

That chorus of 'You got me beggin' for mercy' is just so catchy and the 'yeah, yeah, yeah' parts are dead cute - the song's got everything and as if you didn't need anymore persuading, it's a perfect taster for an album which looks set to be one of the biggest sellers of the year.

Tomorrow is yet another brilliant b-side from Duffy, another slice of retro perfection, all 60s guitars and strings. I love it!

Unless you have been living under a stone recently, or Basingstoke, you can't have failed to notice the hype, hyperbole and Number 1 album and single from Aimee Anne Duffy.

The latest in the line of post-Winehouses, someone up there certainly likes her. I mean, come on, three appearances on Later with Jools Holland prior to her debut album coming out!

But fairs fair, she did her share of due paying, so the rock snobs will tolerate her and, frankly, this is a fabulous pop single, so who cares. Sure, it's hardly cutting edge, harking back to the sixties girl groups ala the other Amy, but all trebled up to sound good on the radiogram, it's a proper old-fashioned three minute classic single.

Hopefully, there is more to Duffy than being a pop sensation. Time will tell, but there is talent in abundance and voice to die for.

You would never believe that Welsh singer Duffy is only 23 when you hear her sing .Her voice has a timbre and tone that speaks of experience way beyond her tender years and not only that -It's powerful enough to blow the roofs of bungalows. Duffy says she did not fully discover how to use her voice until she was spotted by Jeanette Lee, a former member of Public Image Limited and now Duffy's manager and mentor.
Her debut album "Rockferry" will be released In March and Mercy the single lifted of the album has been getting heavy rotational play on Radio 2 and quite right too because like Amy Winehouse,s( An artist it is inevitable she will be compared to) "Rehab" which also garnered lots of airplay - it has a distinctly retro soul feel. "Rehab" is a great song but I truly believe that Mercy is even better.
Where "Rehab" has a classic soul vibe Mercy is centred around a tangible Northern soul groove and ambience with insistent backing vocals, rich sensuous keyboards and bottomed out percussion. It has a delicious hip swinging rhythmic grace but allied to prowling emotional clout abetted wonderfully by her slightly husky barnstormer of a voice.
She has been compared to Lulu, Dolly Parton????? And Dusty Springfield but in truth with the exception of Dusty she is already way way better than the comparisons. The B-side or other track if you prefer is also good and her album on what I have heard(The title track is a brilliant evocative 60,s style ballad) promises to be a belter. A genuine talent , Duffy may soon be so omnipresent that it is us who may be begging for mercy but somehow I doubt it.

I first heard of Duffy when on the internet as one of the few musicians to look out for in 2008. I can say they got that right! This song showcases Duffy's immense talent she has a singer. Her powerful voice is enough to blast anyone off their seat. But don't be fooled into thinking that she just screeches on the top of her lungs. Oh my God no! She stays with the beat of the song perfectly, continuously surprising. The beat in itself is 60s sounding and as a 19-year-old I never thought I'd say this but its pretty catchy! Of course it has some 'modern' elements such as the quiet rap in the background. Absolutely great! Didn't want the song to end but I am content with the fact Duffy will be back with even better beats and like everybody else I'll be keeping an eye out for her.

I'm annoyed. Just wrote lenghty rewiew concurring with previous reviewer, when pc crashed, so shortened version instead.I am the hypothetical dad (57) and used to dance to Tamla,soul and the likes in South London, not Wigan!

Anyway Mercy is brilliant and Duffy invokes nostalgia of that era nobody has managed yet to do for me! I detect influences of the likes of Martha Reeves and Booker T.

Do buy, but please not until Westlife have notched 15th no 1.

Adele v Duffy? To me, no contest.

Wow.. Heard this on the Terry Wogan Radio 2 show and that beat! That voice! They grab you and don't let go a song that doesn't outstay its almost 4 minutes for a millisecond.... This is a timeless recording and would not be out of place on the Wigan Casino Northern Soul dance floor (Ask your Dad!)
Strange to say the backing is outstanding and reminds me of how Robert Plant and Alison Krause's Gone Gone Gone hits you the first time you hear that. But the magnificent musicianship and playing is matched by Duffy's searing voice relentless as a young Aretha Franklin and as hot, she is that GOOD.
The song has that tortured love affair of a paramour relationship with a married man. Angst abounds I urge you to listen to the spoken commentary thru' headphones...
Forget the fact that Duffy seems to have looks to match that voice ala Goldfrappe et al. Now the obvious comparisons will begin to compare Duffy with Amy Winehouse's vocal brilliance. No contest there's room for both.....
Buy the CD just for this single.
