M.I.A. ’27’ (In Memory of Amy Winehouse)

M.I.A. ’27’ (In Memory of Amy Winehouse)


Scomparsa prematuramente, anche se c’era da aspettarselo visto il suo continuo gioco con droga e alchol. Artista per fortuna stracompresa durante la sua carriera, muore nella sua casa di Londra all’età di 27 anni. Un numero che sembra tornare, tristemente, quando si parla di decessi di grandi nomi della musica. Partono subito i tributi. In ricordo di Amy, M.I.A. pubblica sul suo twitter questo demo pensata per B4 vickileekx ma mai inserito, lasciando come commento sul suo Soundcloud la frase “dedicated to all my friends that died at 27.”

Lyrics

said your all mouth and no brains
all rock stars go to heaven
you said you’ll be dead at 27 seven
when we drunk in a English tavern
the owner poured you the Bourbon
and you drunk your self so rotten
so he got so rich he bought a Bentley
and moved himself to Devon
you started dirty dancing
and you bar tended a dozen
i took you to the clinic
to get you clean but you couldn’t
said in 2 days ur 27 and and ur destiny was comin
so ur papa passed so sudden
and left you with lil somin
you blew that money on a mountain of drugs
and staged your self a bed in
a month later when i popped in
your still high but the winter set in
i bought you a coffee and a muffin
and you quoted me some Lenin
i wished i was that clever
but thats what kept me coming
your friendship did mean somin
but you left me for nothin
when i left, you befriended a rope
and i saw you both were hanging.
