Llegamos a la duodécima entrega de nuestra colección que recuerda canciones artistas unidos a nosotros y entre sí para siempre. Esto es así, porque cada uno de nosotros marca su imaginario musical a través de canciones por su significado, por su ritmo, por el momento en que las escuchó por primera vez, por una situación sentimental o por cualquier motivo; puede incluso que inconfesable.

Para nuestro paseo semanal miramos y escuchamos, en esta ocasión, canciones de Amy Winehouse.

3, ni una más ni una menos

La primera, "Back to Black" que nos demostraba su poderío único en ese equilibrio musical que había establecido como propio, que llegaba con un videoclip en blanco y negro para esta canción integrada en el segundo y último álbum de estudio que la cantante británica lanzaba en 2006. La segunda, "Rehab" que valió para que los GRAMMY reconocieran su música en 2008 con tres premios: "Mejor Grabación del año", "Canción del año" y "Mejor Interpretación Vocal Pop Femenina". Y, como cierre, de este paseo musical, tercera canción: "Stronger Than Me" que fue su canción debut y estaba en su álbum "Frank" (2003) y desde él caminó con paso firme, sin titubeo en la música... pero serpenteando siempre en lo personal.

Quizá alguna de estas canciones no sea la preferida, la deseada o quizá querríamos que estuviera aquí, también, OTRA; aquella indispensable. Seguro que asiste la razón o el conocimiento pero esta selección que traemos estará, posiblemente, en el recuerdo imborrable de muchos. Ojalá.

"Black to Black"

He left no time to regret
Kept his dick wet
With his same old safe bet
Me and my head high
And my tears dry
Get on without my guy
You went back to what you knew
So far removed from all that we went through
And I tread a troubled track
My odds are stacked
I'll go back to black

We only said goodbye with words
I died a hundred times
You go back to her
And I go back to
I go back to us

I love you much
It's not enough
You love blow and I love puff
And life is like a pipe
And I'm a tiny penny rolling up the walls inside

We only said goodbye with words
I died a hundred times
You go back to her
And I go back to
We only said goodbye with words
I died a hundred times
You go back to her
And I go back to

Black
Black
Black
Black
Black
Black
Black
I go back to
I go back to

We only said goodbye with words
I died a hundred times
You go back to her
And I go back to
We only said goodbye with words
I died a hundred times
You go back to her
And I go back to black

"Rehab"

They tried to make me go to rehab
I said, "no, no, no"
Yes, I've been black
But when I come back, you'll know, know, know
I ain't got the time
And if my daddy thinks I'm fine
He's tried to make me go to rehab
I won't go, go, go

I'd rather be at home with a Ray
I ain't got seventy days
'Cause there's nothing, there's nothing you can teach me
That I can't learn from Mr. Hathaway

I didn't get a lot in class
But I know we don't come in a shot glass

They tried to make me go to rehab
I said, "no, no, no"
Yes, I've been black
But when I come back, you'll know, know, know
I ain't got the time
And if my daddy thinks I'm fine
He's tried to make me go to rehab
I won't go, go, go

The man said, "why do you think you here?
I said, "I got no idea"
I'm gonna, I'm gonna lose my baby
So I always keep a bottle near
He said, "I just think you're depressed"
This me, "yeah, baby, and the rest"

They tried to make me go to rehab
But I said, "no, no, no"
Yes, I've been black
But when I come back, you'll know, know, know

I don't ever wanna drink again
I just, oh, I just need a friend
I'm not gonna spend ten weeks
Have everyone think I'm on the mend

And it's not just my pride
It's just 'til these tears have dried

They tried to make me go to rehab
I said, "no, no, no"
Yes, I've been black
But when I come back, you'll know, know, know
I ain't got the time
And if my daddy thinks I'm fine
He's tried to make me go to rehab
I won't go, go, go

"Stronger Than Me"

You should be stronger than me
You've been here seven years longer than me
Don't you know you supposed to be the man?
Not pale in comparison to who you think I am
You always want to talk it through, I don't care
I always have to comfort you when I'm there
But that's what I need you to do, stroke my hair
'Cause I've forgotten all of young love's joy
Feel like a lady, and you my lady boy

You should be stronger than me
But instead you're longer than frozen turkey
Why'd you always put me in control
All I need is for my man to live up to his role
You always want to talk it through, I'm okay
I always have to comfort you every day
But that's what I need you to do, are you gay?
'Cause I've forgotten all of young love's joy
Feel like a lady, and you my lady boy

He said "the respect I made you earn
Thought you had so many lessons to learn"
I said "You don't know what love is get a grip
Sound as if you're reading from some other tired script"
I'm not gonna meet your mother anytime
I just want to grip your body over mine
Please tell me why you think that's a crime
I've forgotten all of young love's joy
Feel like a lady, and you my lady boy

You should be stronger than me
You should be stronger than me
You should be stronger than me
You should be stronger than me
