you know that I’m no good…
I freakin’ love this crazy lady.
so this afternoon I was in a pretty funky mood. well not funky but “eh”. I’m working on projects I don’t feel like working on and I’m just trying to make it to 5pm. around 3:20ish this song comes on…how can you deny this song?!
how can you deny Amy?! I mentioned her in my I Miss You post last year because I do miss her. I hope she’s not like Lauryn Hill. Get a hit album out of her, then ghost. I sincerely hope not! But clearly this girl has demons she’s battling. Well I technically have TWO great albums out of her, that I promise can appease that stankiest stank of moods…just mellow, just great musically and lyrically–well lyrically Back to Black can be a bit depressing but I like to just close my eyes, exhale and have a “woo chile, I know thats right” moment with my imaginary homegirl Amy.
here are a few of my favorites by Miss Winehouse, with some standout lyrics to me–you know its alllll about the lyrics over here.
Stronger Than Me: “I’m not gonna meet your mother, any time. I just wanna grip your body… over mine” #POW. I had never seen this video before now.
Back to Black: “Me and my head high, and my tears dry, get on without my guy” this song is every.single.thing. woo chile! “you go back to her, and I go…back to…black” #onrepeat
F Me Pumps: “He could be your whole life, If you got past one night, But that part never goes right.” funny song. should be the Basketball Wives theme music…“Without girls like you, there’s no nightlife, all those men just go home to their wives…”
Me & Mr. Jones: “what kind of fuckery is this…” BEST.SONG.INTRO. I quote this often, lol.
In My Bed: “the only time I hold your hand, is to get the angle right” LOL. this should be the sexually liberal woman anthem. I didn’t know there was a video for this song either. you can find anything on youtube.
Love is a losing game: “while I wish we’d never played. oh what a mess we made” this song just ’bout made me cry. dont laugh I’m hormonal. Good thing this is so short, because I was almost there. this version on the link sends me. *whew*
There is No Greater Love: “there is no greater thrill, than what you bring to me. no sweeter song, than what you sing to me…” I had to redeem myself with this one after LIALG–get my mind back right! 🙂 she sangs on this one too…
Amy has such a jazzy, soulful voice. Its one of my favorites. I hope she makes more music.
