15. A Song for You (Lioness: Hidden Treasures, 2011)

“I cry my eyes out when I hear this song. I loved Amy dearly and my heart breaks for her. I truly miss her. She obviously was singing this with true emotion. The sadness is so tangible. She gave her heart and soul to this person she is singing to. Maybe at times, things were less than perfect but in my opinion, she still loved Blake and of course her fans. Hope you are singing to the angels Amy.”

14. He Can Only Hold Her (Back to Black, 2006)

“I can’t stop listening to this, the lyrics and everything are so amazing! Sad it’s so short and that she isn’t here longer. Very underrated song with such a great melody and lyrics”

13. Wake Up Alone (Back to Black, 2006)

“This is a beautiful heartbreaking song and the arrangement, production is fantastic. The words are incredible; literally describing a wet dream as no one else could. Brilliant!”

12. Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow? (Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason, 2004)

“I did not know Amy Winehouse covered this song. Actually better than the original, including the arrangement. Too bad she’s not around to cover more of these oldies. She had the voice for it.”

9. Stronger Than Me (Frank, 2003)

“The song is great and the music is wonderful but Amy does does not quite reach the heights that she did later, especially on “Black to Black”. Some of her later renditions of jazz classics are simply superb. On this single, she just seems to be going through the motions.”

8. In My Bed (Frank, 2003)

“This is the first song I’ve ever heard of Amy’s and I was instantly in love, this song put me in a mood I never want to get out of. I will forever miss Amy and her beautiful and real voice.”

7. F*** Me Pumps (Frank, 2003)

“I love her gleeful sarcasm in her songs. She’s really enjoying herself when she’s being cheeky and witty in her songs and I miss that about her! She had a fun whimsy to her songs.”

6. Love is a Losing Game (Back to Black, 2006)

“There is no doubt that Amy’s voice is incredible. She was blessed, not just talented. I love the song “Love is a losing game” because you can see the pain in Amy’s voice when she’s singing and that particular song is full of emotion.”

5. Tears Dry on Their Own (Back to Black, 2006)

“One of the best songs of the 00s. Borrowing music from Marvin Gaye/Diana Ross’s Ain’t No Mountain High Enough, you think it won’t work at all, but it does–they are two completely different songs, touching on two completely different issues, and where Ain’t No Mountain High Enough is high hopeful, Tears Dry On Their Own is the miserable kind of hopeful (and I say hopefully because the song does leave you feeling more powerful). The emotions in Amy’s lyrics and vocals really grip you if you’re going through some kind of destructive relationship, doesn’t matter if you’re the “other woman”/”other man” or simply sneaking around because no one else should know about the relationship. Whatever, this song rules.”

4. Valerie (Back to Black, 2006)

“Holy wow, this really slipped under the radar for me. An absolutely stunning pop soul homage, featuring the always fantastic Amy Winehouse, really bringing it her best here on top of some really great, smooth production by Mark Ronson.”

3. Rehab (Amy, 2006)

“The jazzy brass, subtle accompanying strings, R&B rhythm, soulful contralto vocals, and catchy lyrics combine to make a Winehouse classic. Such extraordinary talent. I like this song because it is a good example of blues music how in the slave trade the black slaves sang anything thoughts feelings just there day really.”

2. You Know I’m No Good (Back to Black, 2006)

“The jazzy background orchestra, the divine vocals and the playful lyrics that match Amy’s personality and lifestyle make ‘You Know I’m No Good’ one of the best songs this soul diva ever wrote. I love Amy and this song combines her talent as a singer, as well as a songwriter.”

1. Back to Black (Back to Black, 2006)

“Back to black perfectly captures what it feels like to know someone that is significant to you does not care about you. Very relatable song and everything, from the production and somber beat to the lyricism is perfect to create a mood of heartbreak. Great song”
