P erhaps the most startling thing about Amy Winehouse's death was how startled people were by it. She was a drug addict whose crack use had, her father claimed, given her emphysema. She was a drinker who, by her own admission, "didn't know when to stop". And, as she frequently pointed out, she "didn't give a fuck". It's the kind of story that usually only ends one way, and yet the reaction to her death, my own included, was one of shocked disbelief. Perhaps it's because the chaos of her life had been lived in full public view: it was hardly the first time that an ambulance had been called to her flat because of an overdose, but she'd always somehow survived. Perhaps it's because she had already turned an excess of drink and drugs and emotional devastation into a remarkable album: in the back of your mind lurks the belief that she would somehow do that again, that her talent was such that it couldn't actually be overwhelmed by her excesses, however much horrible evidence there was to the contrary. Or perhaps it's because, despite all the talk of her "rock'n'roll" lifestyle, Amy Winehouse wasn't rock'n'roll. Her records got played on Radio 2 and tangoed to on Strictly Come Dancing.

When asked which of his eight choices he would pick if he had to choose one, he opted for "Love Is a Losing Game". Prince had taken to covering the song live.
While ignorant pundits tended to criticse Ms. Not only because Love Is A Losing Game is a beautiful song by an exceptionally talented artist, but that even for selfish reasons, dismissing music and contemporary lyricism will hurt you in the long run. The practical criticism paper, which threw up some of these more left-field questions than you might expect, is a compulsory part of the English course at Cambridge. Though I battled blind Love is a fate resigned Memories mar my mind Love is a fate resigned. The poem is neat; carefully constructed. If you look at the line length, there are no overly extended lines, no particular lines that visually stand out. Firstly, that it is meant to sound lyrical.
