Amy Winehouse was one of the purest and tragic soul to ever be in the music industry, and she has left behind some amazing music for generations to come and listen to.

I still remember the first time I listened to ‘Back to Black’, the place, the feeling, the people that I was with, everything. It still is right there in my good memories box. Along with that, there’s the memory of the day I got to know about Amy Winehouse’s death. Even this memory is as fresh as it could be and nothing can simply change it now.


Then came the documentary on the life of Amy Winehouse, titled ‘Amy’, and that’s when I got to know more about a very talented, yet living a tragic life, woman. Every new clip from her life brought her closer to me and that’s when I realised how some of the most inspiring or life changing artists that we come across, have some of the most troubled and tragic lives. Her music resonated with many, be it someone old or someone young, her music had something special in it and that’s the reason why people still adore the art weaved and created by Amy Winehouse.

She tragically passed away at the age of 27, due to alcohol poisoning and various other things that affected her along the line of her life. She would have been 34 years old today. However, no one can deny the fact that Amy Winehouse had a short lived career and life, but it’s her music that will always remain in the hearts of her fans and much more to come.

Here are 10 of the best by Amy Winehouse. Each and every track from this list had something different in it and along with a great voice and music, it too had soulful lyrics that one just can’t get out of their heads.

10. Just Friends

And, no, I’m not ashamed
But the guilt will kill you
If she don’t first
I’ll never love you like her
Thought we need to find a time
To just do this shit together
‘Fore it gets worse
I want to touch you

9. Stronger Than Me

He said ‘the respect I made you earn –
Thought you had so many lessons to learn’
I said ‘You don’t know what love is – get a grip!’ –
Sounds as if you’re reading from some other tired script

8. Me & Mr Jones

No, you ain’t worth guest list
Plus one of all them girls you kiss (all them girls)
You can’t keep lying to yourself like this (to yourself)
Can’t believe you played yourself (out) like this

7. Love Is A Losing Game

Though I battled blind
Love is a fate resigned
Memories mar my mind
Love is a fate resigned

6. Cherry

Though I battled blind
Love is a fate resigned
Memories mar my mind
Love is a fate resigned

5. Fuck Me Pumps

source: AmyWinehouseVEVO

Without girls like you
There’d be no fun
We’d go to the club and not see anyone
Without girls like you
There’s no nightlife
All those men just go home to their wives

4. You Know I’m No Good

I cheated myself,
Like I knew I would,
I told you I was trouble,
You know that I’m no good,

3. Valerie

Well sometimes I go out by myself
And I look across the water
And I think of all the things, what you’re doing
And in my head I paint a picture

2. Rehab

And it’s not just my pride
It’s just till these tears have dried

1. Back To Black

source: AmyWinehouseVEVO

We only said goodbye with words
I died a hundred times
You go back to her
And I go back to
I go back to us

We miss you, Amy Winehouse, we will always miss you.
