A look back at music video Amy Winehouse best momentsWinehouse is one of a curiously high number of prominent artists to pass away at age 27. Here's a list of a number of those stars, including Kurt Cobain, Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison and Janis Joplin...
While Amy Winehouse, who tragically passed away today (23 July,2011), might have been better known for her life outside the music in her final years, that reputation sadly overshadows her immense contribution to music.
Rocketing to fame in 2003 with her Ivor Novello-winning, Mercury-nominated jazz-soul masterpiece 'Frank', and following it up three years later with the five times Grammy-winning 'Back To Black', Amy Winehouse leaves a small but vital catalogue that will seal her reputation as one of the greatest singers of the last decade.Here's a look back at her best moments
'In My Bed'
One of the standout tracks from her debut builds on the same sample from Nas' 'Made You Look' but in this case blends a sultry soul with distinct post-millenial production, flute flutters and a soft chorus to mesmerising effect.
'You Sent Me Flying'
The flipside to 'In My Bed' (the pair formed the third single from 'Frank') strips it right down to a simple piano accompaniment to showcase Amy's unrivalled vocal talents before adding a simple breakbeat halfway through. "His message was brutal but the delivery was kind" she sings halfway through the tale, and you're right there with her throughout.
