You Should Be Stronger Than Me…

on July 24, 2011

We lost Amy Winehouse over the weekend. she was/is one of my favorite soul singers and even though we knew she was troubled and had an addiction problem, at 27 years old I still feel so bad that her life and her light was cut so short. I’ve seen mention of the “27 club” and of them all the only that passed away in my lifetime was Kurt Cobain. I remember his death vividly, but as a very young person, I wasn’t able to really feel the depth of his mortality as I do with Amy. I am OLDER than Amy and I never really thought about that before. She looked much older than she was–no doubt from her hard living. It was just recently revealed the night she died she binged on ecstasy, alcohol and cocaine.

I’ve written before about how much I missed her and another post highlighting my favorites by her, and I like many was hoping she’d pull herself though and make more music. I hope she’s at peace now.

    I was also hoping for a new album 😦 As I said in my post, Amys music captured a lot of the things that I was going through, I really felt the emotion in her music. She will be missed so much…

    you know I was late to the Amy train… but thank God I eventually jump on board! I still thisnk Frank is her BEST release — she sang with so much passion and soul…and simply her lyrics were filled with “say what Amy” — “love is blind” is simply one of my fav tracks of her… She will be missed for sure
