This hip-hop style (I think that's what it is) "Beat the Point to Death" stands in contrast to her rendition of the modern jazz classic" "'Round Midnight". I think this says something about the breadth of her musical style. Some comments on "'Round Midnight" compare her in a negative way to Ella Fitzgerald. Well, Ella just happens to be considered by many as the greatest jazz singer ever. Amy was not a jazz singer and she was not a hip-hop singer. She had her own genre and that's why I think she will be remembered.

I thought I'd post this little gem. In a way it seems to express the essence of this talented and tormented young woman. It was released as a single in 2009, but apparently recorded in 2001 when Amy was just 17. If so, this song indicates her troubles started early. It's title "Long Day" is the same as a song released by Matchbox20 in 2001. That song was about 9/11. This song is about a young woman aged beyond her years.

The lyrics are sometimes a bit hard to understand (at least for me), but appear beside the video display. I'm personally moved by this song.
