MIA Winehouse

M.I.A. pays t.r.i.b.u.t.e. to the fallen Amy Winehouse in an unfinished demo which narrates a story of a person who committed suicide following a period of alcohol and druge abuse.

27 by _M_I_A_

A very creative song!

On her Twitter site, Maya Arulpragasam quipped that '27' was an "unfinished demo" which was recorded before her 2010 mixtape 'Vickileekx'

I've always been fascinated by the "27" curse! Like fellow 27-year-olds Jim Morrison, Brian Jones, Jimi Hendrix, Kurt Cobain, Janis Joplin, and Robert Johnson -- and Otis Redding, and Buddy Holly, and countless others who made an impact quickly, before vanishing -- Amy Winehouse's destiny will be a long tail of art remembering her.

Other celebs are jumping on the "Amy tribute wagon" - including the likes of Courtney Love and Lady Gaga.

  1. Enough with the "Remembering Amy Winehouse" schlockfest. Here's what I remember: She was a drug addict who sang a few catchy songs, got tons and tons of money, bought a ton of drugs and OD'd. There, how'd I do?

Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
