AP080220029054.jpgAs if she hasn’t been battling herself enough these days, Amy Winehouse will face off against Amy Winehouse in the “Best Song Musically & Lyrically” category of this year’s Ivor Novello Awards, which are given to UK songwriters and composers who pass muster with their peers. Going up against “Love Is A Losing Game” and “You Know I’m No Good” is the very Rod Stewarty “Let Me Out” by Ben’s Brother, which could win if Winehouse splits the vote, Lord help us. Other nominees include Kate Nash, Klaxons, a band named Cherry Ghost that could pass for Coldplay in a blind taste test, and that awful ringtoney Beyonce/Shakira collaboration. Click on Amy for the list of nominees that have been announced so far.

    I would never have thought that “Beautiful Liar” could be classified as a “British Song”, but here’s Wikipedia to the rescue:

    The song was written by Beyoncé, Amanda Ghost, Ian Dench, and Stargate members Mikkel S. Eriksen and Tor Erik Hermansen and produced by Stargate and Beyoncé for the re-release of her B’Day album.

    According to the Wik, Ian Dench was the guitarist and principal songwriter for EMF. He also wrote Jordin Sparks’ “Tattoo”.

    Hmh.
