Amy - She Gone

entry picture

The sun was shining brightly

On Saturday July 23

I was listening to my radio

When the news was broken to me

Her time on this earth was ended

Surely lord above it cannot be

It's all gone so wrong

Amy - She gone


The girl with the voice so pure

Dead at the tender age of 27

She is flying high in the sky

Destination a place called heaven

She lived her life to the full

And left us in the year 2011

People you have got to be strong

Amy - She gone


She was blessed with a gift

That's the price of fame

The burden was too great

And her destiny it came

She didn't get no choice

No one should take the blame

The songs will live on and on

Amy - She gone

Edith Piaf, Dusty Springfield, Joan Baez, Adele, Janice Joplin, Etta James, Amy Winehouse - unique voices for their art. (Some, mercifully, still with us).

Thank you, Tom. As you say, she was blessed with a gift. I remember her singing on a Jools Holland New Year Programme and being applauded by...Henry Blofeld. A wide appeal, if there ever was one.

Such a waste
and yes the cost of fame really can be too high for some

thanks Tom

There are precedents in that way of life. Billie Holiday and
Hank Williams are notable example. Others - like Del Shannon - take their own lives. The tragic cost of fame and the pressures
it exerts on the famous, often way too young.
