The ten best Amy Winehouse songs

Since the release of Amy last Friday, the late Miss Winehouse has been bringing tears to the world in their cinema seats. It’s been four years since the singer passed, but her music lives on. Here’s the best of her spectacular contribution to music, in order of most mentioned on the web. Back To Black ‘Back to Black’ is the title song of her second studio album, released back in 2006 and produced by Mark Ronson. Combining the vintage sounds of soul and doo-wop, bitter lyrics are sung in sultry tones to produce an instant classic. Rehab Gritty, honest and brassy (if worryingly prophetic), 'Rehab' is timeless. Untameable vocals ooze over jazzy notes with anguish. You Know I’m No Good Glossed with hints of hip-hop, Winehouse flirts with a playful tune sugar-coating confessional lyrics ‘I told you, that I was trouble, you know that I’m no good.’ Valerie I doubt anybody has lived their life without singing The Zuton’s cover by Amy and Mark Ronson, triggered to be recorded by a live lounge performance and featured on Ronson's covers album Versions. Upbeat, funky and triumphant Winehouse/Ronson showed the world how to really pull it off.
