Subject:    Amy Winehouse Songs Written by Shakespeare!

Princeton Professor of Linguistics, Dr. Jeremy Gobble astounded both the music 
and literary world today, by claiming that virtually all of the songs recorded 
by Amy Winehouse, were actually penned by none other than William Shakespeare.

'The evidence is there for all to see', announced Dr Gobble at a press 
conference this morning. 'Analysis of the Winehouse repertoire reveals an 
astonishing correlation with Shakespeare's own writings.' Sceptical journalists 
were given food for thought when recently discovered tape-recordings of the 
bard, were played, and they did indeed appear to bear a remarkable resemblance 
to the Winehouse hits.

'Naturally, Ms. Winehouse changed a few words here and there', said the 
Professor, 'but as you can tell from listening to Shakespeare singing "They 
tried to make me go to rehab, but I said parting is such sweet sorrow", the 
similarities are obvious.

When asked if it was possible that Amy Winehouse and Shakespeare were one and 
the same person, the professor was guarded in his response. 'It's too early to 
tell as yet. We must first carry out more tests. I'd particularly like Ms. 
Winehouse to undero a brain scan, . . . if in fact she has one.'
