Musical Influence of Amy Whinehouse Lives On

She’s dead at just 27, but her death seem not surprising to the people who knew and surrounded her. Amy Whinehouse’s was suffering from drug addiction, and showing no sign of getting better.

Amy WinehouseIn her short musical career, Amy finished two albums; one entitled “Back to Black” that gave her the distinction of becoming one of the most phenomenal Grammy awards winners.

Her music mostly had the influence of the 1940’s jazz and 1960’s Motown which allowed her to contribute much to the music industry, and gave us an album that’s truly memorable. Her music was created just within the last decade, but they all sound so timeless.

She will be most remembered by the way she sounded. A feature on Time Newsfeed pointed that some said she was just an excellent imitator, there was no one else in her genre that could possibly do a cover of a Sam Cooke song and not sound so inferior to the original. Despite lyrics that are sometimes hard to comprehend and her mournful croons, Amy still had that novel sound which endeared her more to her fans.

Much of her short career was made possible by Mark Ronson. They co-produced her “Back to Black” album, from which the highly successful single “Rehab” was taken. Ironically, the song’s lyrics are quite close enough to mirror the singer’s real life. She has been encouraged to seek help for her drug addiction problems, but she always says “no, no, no.”

Pass it on. Help a friend or a loved one.
