I remember when she passed away and everyone was making such a big deal about her and I had never heard of her. LOL Pretty good now that I've heard her but still not that big of a deal to me.

That voice is still unbelievable, one in a billion. The brightest stars shine always the shortest it seems.

My girlfriend made me watch a documentary about her called Amy and it was really great, made me much more of a fan.  She died to young, but she left much good music!

Ah, BG strikes again with another great segue, Joplin (take a little) yields Winehouse. Can't you hear the sadness and pain in both voices? 
9s from me for both  of these sadly deceased singers

A beautiful, heartbreaking tragedy.

Ah, Amy. So much talent, so much pain. {#Cry}

I'm lucky to have a FABULOUS live version of this song, recorded at SXSW 2008, that even blows away this studio version.

I'll never forget that day, on an open air concert near Frankfurt, with The Brew and main act Eric Burdon, and him proclaiming between two songs: Amy Winehouse has just passed away. And me turning round to my friends, asking: Have you heard what I've just heard?

Excellent but sad, of course.
She was already dealing with depression and substance abuse issues before she became famous.
When "Back to Black" pushed her into the media spotlight, the paparazzi sleaze and the endless demands of fame were the proverbial straw that broke the camel's back.
Yet another great talent silenced.

Yes, but you forgot the one big influence on her way into the downwards spiral: Despicable Blake Fielder-Civil, and her parents are just as guilty. Her weak mother, thinking that bulimia "will go away by itself somehow, i didn't think it dangerous" and her self obsessed shister of a father, who was just interested in milking her for money.

One of her biggest hits "Rehab" was written, because she was using and an addict, needed help and her father said "oh no your'e ok, you got a tour to think of you do not need rehab"!

When I saw the docu, I was so angry I could have killed this SOB!  

And the most despicable thing: Her father is now dating a very young women who looks excactly like her, including bee hive hair do, tattoos and all.

If that is not sick, I do not know what sick is! Shagging a look-a-like like his own daughter, that is one sick bastard!

Just this afternoon, I heard Terry Gross interview Mark Ronson on Fresh Air.  You can check out the interview here: 

Mark Ronson - Fresh Air

Their discussion of this album was very interesting.  It's a real shame Amy couldn't get past her demons:(
