TEARS DRY O THEIR OWN
This song samples marvin Gaye’s “aint no mountain high enough”
Back to Black
The title track from her album. Amy’s sultry video is both beautifully and artistically shot in black and white and compares in imagery a doomed love affair with that of a funeral
Another good song , this one talks about an ended relationship , as she askes “…when will we get the time to be just friends?”
She was troubled but you cant deny that she was extreamely talented .
MAY HER SOUL REST IN PEACE
