Dead Love: Back to Black with Amy Winehouse

I don’t know about you, but the day after Judgment Day, I’m ready to go “Back to Black,” and for me that means relishing the title song from the 2006 album by Amy Winehouse, troubled Grammy Award-winning British chanteuse and very nice naughty girl.

Substance abuse may occasionally rob her of her dignity but it has yet to rob her of her voice—though her smoke does seem to have gotten into more things than her eyes.

Obviously we all have our crosses to bear, and on a Sunday after a Rapture that did not materialize for the many who longed for it, I think it’s best to recant, rewind and go back … to black.

As for me, I have an Apocalypse to prepare for, but that’s at least a year and a half away.
