Amy Winehouse Dead at 27

Posted by zerofigures on July 23, 2011

Man, what a day.  Just got news that Amy Winehouse is gone.  I haven’t blogged in a while and am sorry that a situation like this is what it takes for me to return.  But I suppose that blogging is a way for people to release and express their feelings so here I go.

Amy Winehouse’s Back to Black album was so full of soul and awesomeness, as a fellow Brit, I feel in love with her.  That voice, in that package was a thing of beauty.  You felt it,  it moved you.  I first remember listening to her album driving south on I-95 to MD to see my then girlfriend and being completely blown away.  It was like Jazz, Ska and Reggae and so much more all in one.  It quickly became one of my favorite albums.  Seeing her gone down the path she took was hard and I hoped and hoped that she would get better.  While other watched her ruin herself I shook my head and wished she would get better.  You can’t even google her name without being bombarded by awful paparazzi pictures of her destroying herself. Amy deserved better but I suppose she did this to herself.

I’m not sure why things had to play out this way but I can only hope that others use her as an example.  All that talent and beauty gone to waste. I’m done.

RIP Amy and thank you for what you have left behind.
