I love Amy Winehouse. She is one of my favorite artists; both of her albums Frank and Back to Black are on my top 10 list. I love her talent and her heartbreaking and soulful lyrics that accompanied her 1960's taste. I knew all the words to every song and in some way, I connected to the inner breaking she went through. Of course, not in the same way or same degree, but as heartbreaking as her words were she always sang with a breath of hope.
Since Saturday, I've watched the news and read articles regarding her death and I listen to what every critic has to say about her life. But regardless of her turmoil that the world always saw her in, no one truly knows exactly what she went through. Some of us may understand, only because we all go through stuff in life, but in the end she was someone's daughter, someone's sister and friend. So, instead of talking about her issues I wanted to share with you a few of my favorite songs from her. After all, her talent beams.
If you've never listened to her or have, take some time out to listen to her words...
Love is a Losing Game
Stronger Than Me
Take the Box
He Can Only Hold Her (my favorite set of lyrics)
Cherish life lovelies!
