Music for a Sunday: Amy Winehouse, RIP

Calle 13 posted this video to their official page with the comment: “Wow, Amy Winehouse died! What a shame, she had a tremendous voice!” I think that about sums it up, yes. Whatever else she had going on, despite the tabloids that hounded her ad nauseam (and, in so doing, probably exacerbated her troubles), her talent was huge. And when she was on her game, as here…she was really on it. She could be funny, caustic, openly self-pitying and yet strangely resilient and unwilling to take pity from others.

Now the sad lyrics of this break-up song have proved only too prophetic. Amy’s gone “back to black”.

She will be missed.
