This video is how I want to remember Amy Winehouse. This is before the tattoos, the beehive, the eyeliner…and the addiction. It was her VOICE that really attracts me to listen to her even if I’m not really into jazz or R&B, the “vintage” style of her voice and music is what made her noticeable when she was just starting. I love reggae and I like ska, so her musical style is somehow close to what I enjoy listening, and I can’t just ignore that voice!
I only came to know her through the multi-awarded album “Back to Black” where all the songs are on repeat on my playlist even up until today. We can only wish she should have lived longer to make more good music that is very rare nowadays.
Another gone too soon exceptional talent of this generation. Wasted due to addiction. Sad truth.
