I woke up this morning to the news that Amy Winehouse had been found dead in her London home. Although I haven’t seen any official reports as to the cause of death, as a long time fan of Winehouse (and someone who has picked her for the dead pool game the past two years), I sort of knew this day was coming…..purely speculation when I say…addiction is a bitch.
Amy will be greatly missed and her sound will remain purely unique. Her voice was unmistakable, her passion poured through her words….her music gave me chills. The first time I heard her, I was shocked to learn that the voice I fell in love with was pouring out of a skinny ass white girl. It commanded your attention and always got it.
My personal favorites?
* Tears Dry on their own (one of the greatest post break up songs EVER)
*Back to Black
*You Know I’m No Good
*Will you still Love me tomorrow
*Rehab (even though we all knew even that wasn’t going to save her…)
What’s your favorite Amy Winehouse song?
