I love Amy Winehouse, September 26, 2007
By Museum Lover (Kansas) - See all my reviews

I heard a lot about a troubled singer named Amy Winehouse and finally watched the Rehab video about 4 months ago. I instantly knew I was watching and listening to a true artist. I rarely buy cd's or even listen to new music, but I bought this the day I first heard Amy, and I listen to it every day. I'm a fairly conservative 41-year old woman, and my 13-year old son wonders how I can rave about a drug & alcohol abusing singer, given my "strict" ways regarding drugs, etc., but I absolutely LOVE Amy Winehouse, and for her I make allowances. Her kind of talent is a very rare gift. Forget what you read in the tabloids and buy this cd. She is what she is, which is an extremely talented young woman.

I feel as if We're getting ready to experience another "Miracle at Glastonbury" moment. When she took the stage in pouring rain and sang "the sun comes up", and indeed the sun appeared as if she had summoned it with her power and grace. I nearly expect a star to fall from the sky tonight and gently land upon her tiny shoulder.

.o~oOo~o.

As pain is Amy's inspiration, she no doubt will deliver her most heart wretching, soul baring collection yet. I wish she didn't have to suffer so for her craft. It truly pains me to know how heartbroken she has to be.


Amy Winehouse died, and she's taken a part of my soul with her. May that part be the love that I felt for her, and may the love that I still feel for her be the undying part of us both.

Quotes from Boy George (formerly from Culture Club) about Amy, taken from Neil McCormick’s interview, published on 24 Januari, 2008:

"I love Amy Winehouse. My favourite thing was seeing her going into Shoreditch police station, because that's where I was nicked. It's obviously the pop star cop shop. She looks as if she should be in a John Waters movie, the pencil skirt, the beehive, always slightly dizzy. She reminds me of myself in the early days of Culture Club. She really inspired me to sing again. For me, the measure of a great singer is whether they make me cry. I love George Michael's voice, but he never made me cry. Amy makes it sound so effortless, but she's not faking it. It comes down to a complete package, feeling it, doing it, living it."

According to NME, Boy George has written a song about Amy Winehouse. He wrote it during the four months that he was in prison for beating and falsely imprisoning a man in his East London flat. The song, which is titled, "Your Pain Makes a Beautiful Sound," features the lyrics: "You're a genius, you're a car crash/It's hard to say what you do best."

I wonder if this song will be included in his release next year.

“I wrote a lot of stuff, which will be released next year”, Boy George told The Times of his stay in HMP Edmunds Hill in Suffolk. “I wrote a diary, and songs.”

Hasn't he already released a song with Amy in it?
And I go back to... I go back to us.


Bruised, battered and desparate for a fag she may be, but Amy is our 21st Century Piaf: flawed yet fabulous, tormented yet towering. Think of her this way and hope that the still remarkably young woman under the eyeliner thinks that way too. - Jude Rogers, The Word

“I’ve heard her, of course. I bought her record and I thought it was great.” She pauses. “It’s sad her life has overshadowed the music. She has a great voice.”

from timesonline: The top 30 power players under 30

Entertainment
1 Amy Winehouse, 26, singer
All eyes are on Amy — again. She’s got to the top as the car crash we can’t look away from (only Wayne Rooney and Prince William have more digital column inches), but everything rests on her next move. Can she get clean? Will her protégée Dionne Bromfield amount to anything? Will her long-awaited third album bomb? If she can emerge triumphant from her troubles, she will be a force to be reckoned with. Max Clifford says: “Amy will never disappear, she’s too established. If her next record doesn’t work, she should look for a cause to attach herself to.”

Amy Winehouse is one of the great if not the greatest songstresses of early 21st century. On her current output alone I think she will hold this position for the whole century. Just a smoky wonder of a voice with a country western break , a soprano lilt and a husky lower register -- a rare combination in he the human voice. All this plus the interpretive skills of a great actress put her up there with Judy Garland Billie Holliday Maria Callas and the like.

Cool that Amy has the biggest circle! Although it only seems to mean she has the most connections in their "similarity" formulas - "If you liked that, then you'll probably like this."

“The wonderful thing about the Amy Winehouse record —and don’t take this as a derogatory remark— is that it has the sound of the amateur in it… I’d say punk was the glorification of the amateur.” - Malcolm McLaren
