Like so many others I imagine, I am doing a blog tribute to Amy Winehouse.
What can I say? Other than the fact that she was AMAZING. Such a talent, such a voice, such an asset to soul music, to music in general!
Her words and voice spoke to my soul, when I felt down I would listen to her and felt like she actually GOT me. I know few artists who have had that power, that natural raw talent, the ability to speak to someone's soul.
Last week I was listening to her, I was wondering when she was going to gift us all with a new album. Sadly, that day will never come. I am forever grateful for the music that she has created and shared with the world.
I will miss you Amy, I know I didn't know you personally but through your music I felt like I did.
Rest in peace Amy. I will remain a true fan for always.

I hear voices but they don't make sense.
Left and right but mostly center,
I was frozen yet you entered.
I said stop but you didn't listen,
took what you wanted without permission.
I wake up, I'm feeling sore,
feeling ashamed and like a whore.

so you could see what you've done
as soon as you said the words
the damage was done
You've opened the box and now the storm has begun
Why did you start this?
Can you not see what we have done,
your own private army.
Fighting for you though you are not my own,
the walls I've come against, the tears on my pillow.
Same old scenario, same old game
My dreams, I wish I had stayed lost in them.
So sick of my face each day in the mirror,
glass is dirty, reflection not much better
far too young to have a meltdown
too old to throw a tantrum
So what is there to do but lay here,
with a tear falling from each eye?
Nothing has changed since last time.

Thought he would be home at 8 tonight, but he never came
Cooked bolognaise for him tonight, it’s 20 years today
He should be home, but he never came
He is with the angels, for someone that could never be saved
I’m crying alone tonight, and trying to be strong
The man I loved vanished tonight, and I can’t figure it out
Trying to tell the kids tonight, thought I would die from the pain
I have to wake up tomorrow, and face it all again
All of a sudden, life isn’t alive
The flowers outside aren’t as blue as the day before
And I’m scared that the last thing he saw
Made him regret everything he had worked for.
Dying for people that will never understand,
Never understand the sacrifice that goes in hand with
The badge and title that used to command respect

I must be one of very few (if not only) Kiwi's that actually like this idea.
Sure it's lame, tacky and a bit unoriginal... but I think that's why I like it.
New Zealand has never been afraid to push boundaries and have a laugh at ourselves in the process. Why are we being such sticks in the mud now?
Also, this would be GOOD for NZ tourism, it represents NZ and Wellington's importance in the film industry, it shows that we are a proud country but not too proud to have a laugh at ourselves. We're proud, yet humble about it.
The way people are going on about this you would think they were going to stick a giant swastika on the hill.
NZers lets not forget that sometimes it's okay to be tacky!
After all, isn't that what made the 80's so amazing?

Afraid of the outside world and all it can be?
Too afraid to step outside,
I give you a subtle push on the windowside
not subtle enough, because you're back
in the doorway, on my track
There is more than you can see,
I know the drop is a long way down
I'm trying to help you, settle down.
Please don't sting me
I'm just like you.
I'm a different colour
But I'm scared too.
