I could not close out my evening without mentioning Amy Winehouse. Her untimely death has left a hole, whether it be small or large, in the music world. She entered the game at a time when we were all in need of depth and soul from our artists; when we came to accept auto-tune as a legitimate form of singing. Ms. Winehouse provided us with a breath of fresh air on Back to Black that should not be forgotten. So, while the news is focusing on some of her lowest moments, I would like to remember her, as I would want people to remember me when I am gone, at her best.
One of my favorite songs from her album was "Just Friends." Take a listen at: http://youtu.be/IvRnrIv3mpM
Be well, Amy. Wherever you may be...
