REMEMBERING AMY WINEHOUSE (1983-2011)

Tributes from across the world have been pouring in for singer AMY WINEHOUSE -who was found dead Saturday in her London home. Her former producer Mark Ronson said: "She was my musical soul mate and like a sister to me. This is one of the saddest days of my life."
The troubled soul diva, who shot to fame with “Rehab,” won five Grammy Awards and sold more than 5 million albums worldwide. And that figure is set to rise, with the U.K.’s Official Charts Company reporting a surge in downloads and sales of Winehouse’s songs for the past 48 hours.

I hear people saying what a wasted talent, on the contrary, she hasn't made an album in 5 years and her work will stand the test of time. I prefer to remember her in her full glory, tattoo's out in tiny skinny jeans belting out hits to make angels weep. Here's a look back at some of Amy Winehouse's most notable hits:

YOU KNOW I'M NO GOOD This is one of the things that made her so special.She was a unique talent and one of the few "true" musical pioneers.


LOVE IS A LOSING GAME quite simply the best female voice i ever heard when amy was at the top of her game! it was all so effortless!


REHAB she hasn't always been such a mess, this was one of her best performances! rip Amy!...you were a great singer!

Winehouse’s name joins a list of other singer-songwriters who died aged 27: Brian Jones, Jim Morrison, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin and Kurt Cobain among them. =O
