I’m not gonna get all mushy about her, though. Let’s face it, the girl was a mess. She had countless opportunities to clean herself up, and flipped off every single one of em. She was surrounded by enablers, from that loser ex-husband of hers, right down the line. Although, to be honest, I don’t think she really needed MUCH enabling.
Suffice to say that I really did love the girl’s music and thought that “Back to Black” was quite possibly the best album of the decade.
Everyone knows “Rehab”, but for those less familiar with her other works, give a listen to my personal favorite below. This song makes me sad, and makes me smile at the same time.
Just like the girl herself.
Here’s to you, Amy….. I hope you find the peace in the afterworld that you could never seem to find here on Earth…..
