Unrelated, but my favourite 'misheard Amy lyric' I've ever heard someone say was 'not fuck myself in the head with Superman'


I thought she was singing that when I first heard Tears Dry On Their Own

In Stronger Than Me I thought she was singing 'with due respect I made you worse'

info from the radio tribute tonight - Nas hadn't heard cherry wine until after Amy passed and the song was wrote for him.

I know this is off topic but mark also talked about some of the funny things amy said during the sessions for the james bond song,

"i remember later on when we were working on the james bond theme and she came in when i was working on the first demo and she said, "i want something that sounds like james bond would kill someone not um get in a lift to!". lol! :)

so "where is he, the man who is just like me" was written for Nas? About him? in what year?

sorry, I haven't heard the radio tribute, so I don't fully understand.

This is the quote from the radio tribute: NAS: "That idea...the Cherry Wine record was something she had already recorded. We didn't get a chance to do the records we had plans for, my man and her team told me that she wrote this one for me but she hadn't ever let me hear it. I never got to hear it until after she passed. The record was perfect and uh..shout out to her father and her whole team for letting us get the record on the album. And it's been nothing but love, you know that's my virgo sister. that's what it is".

Does anyone know what the correct lyrics for Like Smoke are?

I never wanted you to be my man i just need your company don't want to get dependent on your time or who you spend it on but lose it when you look at me like smoke i hung around and be your balance (first verse)

I never wanted you to be my man i just needed company don't want to get dependent on your time or who you spend it on and lose it when you look at me - like smoke i hang around in the unbalanced (rest of song)

No, I think she was with Blake but cheating on him with some other guy, her ex here would be anyone before Alex Clare.
I think this is when they were first going out, with their on-again/off-again relationship, Amy warns Blake that she's trouble, that she wont be true.

I just remembered the other day when I was listening to Take The Box, I used to think she said 'I say goodbye to your parrot, it smelled like you'. It didn't make much sense but I got used to it :moon:

He still stands in spite of what his Mars bar says.

Am I the only one that hears "my husband is the most finest, handsomest lover." I keep reading lyric pages and people saying she says "handsome hustler" but I don't hear that at all. is it "handsome lover" or "Handsomest hustler" or something else?

Thanks, I just left a comment on it. I'm surprised there was a long debate about it. For some odd reason, I can't hear "hustler"! I been listening to the line over and over again with an open mind but all I hear is "lover". Amy needs to re-record the song with clearer pronounciation. :-) If only! :-(
