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.

Love Is a Losing Game

Poignant lyrics ‘love is a losing game, one I wish that I’d never played’ balance on repetitive,dreamy sounds. Simple, but heartbreaking.

Tears Dry On Their Own

Amy’s jazz vocal tones and gleeful melodies are sampled against Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell’s ‘Ain’t No Mountain High Enough’, surging energy as a Motown and R&B infusion.

In My Bed

Taking a Nas instrumental and buttering over her caramel tones, debut Amy Winehouse confidently mixes dainty flute instrumentals with R&B attitude.

Me & Mr Jones

Fabulously glamorous, the track is supposedly about Nas the rapper. Powerful vocals give a good telling off with assured lyrics.

Stronger Than Me

Amy’s very own debut single showcases the nineteen year old's fruity voice and can-do attitude. It made everybody sit up and listen, and try to work out what she means by the turkey.

Fuck Me Pumps

Reaching the peak of her sass, tongue-in-cheek lyrics bounce on a toe tapping beat. Don't be too upset, if they call you a skank, 'Cause like the news everyday you get pressed’
