I’ve got to be honest I have never been a big fan of Amy Winehouse until I watched AMY; the film really highlighted to me just how lyrically talented and deep she was. video of “What is it about Men?”below is a case in point. This kind of Jazz is actually pretty similar to that style you might find now on Ninja Tune. Moreover, the depth of what she is saying is pretty moving. It was suggested in the documentary that this was the kind of stripped back raw music that she actually wanted to make; if so this is a real shame, as I would have loved to have heard more. Check it out.
* This song was also on her debut album Frank, but again it had been popularised to a level that makes it pretty insignificant compared to this version, which can be found on the Film’s official soundtrack.
