It's time we paid tributes to one of the all-time greats. Amy Winehouse's music is the definition of modern classics, with songwriting and singing talent so great no matter how bad her personal life got you were always rooting for her. Countless of your faves have praised her and cited her as a trailblazer for both British acts in the States and for female acts in general, from the obvious such as Adele and Paloma to Gaga and Florence.

You all have three weeks to rate, comment and speculate on the above songs, and then PM me the results. All the songs are compulsory, so if you leave any out your vote will not be counted. I've decided to take inspiration from the iconic Smiths rate and include the 11, because with material like this there's too many 10s to count and hopefully it'll break up a few potential ties. Plus we can drag anyone with unpopular taste. Away you go!

Re: The Incredible Miss Amy Winehouse Rate

Haven't listened to her albums in forever. Hope I can find the time to do this!
 
Re: The Incredible Miss Amy Winehouse Rate

Oh my god, this rate is going to destroy me. If only I could find my eight page paper I wrote about Back to Black in my senior year of high school. He Can Only Hold Her or You Sent Me Flying better come for the win. Proper stannage coming.
 
Re: The Incredible Miss Amy Winehouse Rate

Hey guys, I just want to start campaigning for Take The Box now. Give it you're 11 and no one gets hurt.
 
Re: The Incredible Miss Amy Winehouse Rate

Me & Mr. Jones is my favorite song of all time. Not just fangirling here, I mean it. It'll be interesting to see where you all put it.

Re: The Incredible Miss Amy Winehouse Rate

Oh my god, this is going to be incredible.
 
Re: The Incredible Miss Amy Winehouse Rate

I can't believe I'm going to have to listen to Lioness for this.

Re: The Incredible Miss Amy Winehouse Rate

Back To Black may well receive the highest album average I've ever given out in a rate. He Can Only Hold Her just does things to me, but it's going to be difficult to pick just one song for my 11.

I'm worried y'all are going to do Frank wrong. What an incredible album.
 
Re: The Incredible Miss Amy Winehouse Rate

Um, Frank is just as good as Back to Black. Lioness is undoubtedly weak from obvious reasons. My Back to Black average is going to be ridiculous.

Re: The Incredible Miss Amy Winehouse Rate

'Back to Black' only, though that's not to shame any of the singles which are all classics that deserve to be remembered for a lifetime.
 
Re: The Incredible Miss Amy Winehouse Rate

About Fucking Time.

My 11 is clear cut and from 'Frank'. It has her best lyric ever in it.
 
Re: The Incredible Miss Amy Winehouse Rate

I can guarentee my average for Back to Black will be above 9, Frank however will suffer from a few duds.

What is a Lioness precious?
