Amy Winehouse - Love Is A Losing Game

Sat Jan 28, 2012 12:49 am

One of the absolute highlights from Amy's now classic Back To Black album [Island Records, 2006].
Everything about this recording is just perfect. Be it the effortlessly cool and punctuated rhythm section; the rich yet restrained strings; the glorious old-fashioned reverb and of course Amy's heartbreakingly gorgeous vocals, that since her premature death in July 2011, have now taken on extra meaning.
When released as the final single off BTB, in 2007, she could not have known it would be the last ever single to see release in her lifetime.
Truly profound. RIP Amy.

"Love Is A Losing Game" (Lyrics)

For you I was a flame, love is a losing game
Five story fire as you came, love is a losing game
One I wished I never played, oh what a mess we made
And now the final frame, love is a losing game

Played out by the band, love is a losing hand
More than I could stand, love is a losing hand
Self-professed, profound, 'til the tips were down
Know you're a gambling man, love is a losing hand

Though I'm rather blind, love is a fair resign
Memories mar my mind, love it is a fair resign
Over a few tiles, and laughter by the docks
And now the final frame, love is a losing game

Writer: Amy Winehouse

She was a very talented artist.

There's not a weak track on the entire album.
Not many would argue against it being the finest and most important album of it's generation.
