Fan Intervention (an open letter to Amy)
Posted 18 March 2008 - 08:25 PM
I wished that one of Amy's close friends or a fan could say to Amy, "The songs have a special quality that sets them apart from most other music. That quality is the heartfelt personal nature of your lyrics. That quality is what lets hundreds of thousands--if not millions of your fans feel as if you are singing your songs just for them. You don't have to beat yourself up over minor flaws in your performances; to the fans, it doesn't matter. When a fan goes to one of your concerts, (s)he's just happy to be in the same room with you. When your fans watch you performing on television and you look into the camera lens, they feel as if you are looking straight at them, singing just for them. Even hearing a recording of one of your songs makes it feel as if you are a close friend who has walked into the room."

very true, and nicely put.
Exactly. She said "It's not like I'm that important or anything. It's not brain surgery."
I don't think that Amy has yet caught onto the idea that her music casts this spell over people. I really wish that she'd "get it" one of these days.
But I think her music might be just as helpful as brain surgery.
