Little break in my vacation report to talk about music.
The other day I was scrolling through the replays of Arte on their app (for people who don’t know Arte, it is a French/German TV channel that deals a lot with culture and society) and I discovered this : an amazing concert of Amy Winehouse with a very cool interview of her in 2006 and documentary film about her life!
I was so hypnotized that I had to watch the concert twice. Amy’s voice, her interpretation, her cuteness in the interview and her knowledge in music, everything impressed me.
Athough I knew the most popular songs of her album Back to black, I was not a big fan of the music and thought it was quite mainstream. I rediscovered her a few years ago when I decided to listen to her album Frank. This album was so special, so jazzy. It instantly became my favourite album.
I became aware of the greatness of Back to black only later when watching videos of Amy’s live performances. The lyrics have a totally different meaning when you see how she interprets the songs.
After having listened to all her songs and watched all the videos of her performances I felt frustrated to know that I will never ever see anything new with Amy in it. So for me these videos are like a real treasure!
I totally recommand you to watch the videos before they are deleted from the replay (which means that you have until saturday).
