Friday Music Inspiration: Amy Winehouse

Today wouldn’t be complete without a few words in memory of Amy Winehouse.

Known for her raspy and soulful sounds, Amy Winehouse will be remembered as a pioneer paving the way for today’s top acts such as Lady Gaga and Adele.  Hits such as “Tears Dry on Their Own” and “Love is a Losing Game” off the  Back to Black album will live on and will mark her as one of the best artists of our time.

Rest in peace, Amy.

    Amy Winehouse is on all of my playlists. Too many GREAT songs to name, but F&*% Me Pumps and In My Bed are just a few of my faves.

    Winehouse will forever be a legend in the music industry, and whether you like her music or not you have to admit that many people have been touched by the way she sings and performs – not by her behavior. However, I also hope that she will be a legend for inspiring people to get help for drug addiction. It just goes to show that even the most promising and influential people can fall victim to this condition. Sad. She will be missed.
