On Amy Winehouse’s “I Heard Love Is Blind”

Frank, released on October 20th, 2003.

Authenticity is an interesting quality. It is admired but also feared by those who pretend to be someone other than themselves so to be liked by many. Her genuineness made Amy special – and also very vulnerable – but let’s talk about that song right here:

With an extreme nonchalance she delivers her simple and unapologetic truth: she was longing for her man. I know the lyrics sounds cold blooded but I have to respect how candid and honest her explanation was. Polyamorously…

IMO, the tune climaxes she call for forgiveness “How can I put it so you can understand: I did not let him hold my hand

Rest in Power sis.
