9. “Wake Up Alone”
Despite Winehouse’s battles with addiction and the media’s harsh representation of her life, Winehouse’s lyrics and gut-wrenching voice spoke intimately to an entire generation of women going through the same issues.
“Wake Up Alone” is the sort of song any young modern woman dealing with a broken heart would understand, with lyrics like:
Got so sick of crying, so just lately when I catch myself I do a one-eighty/I stay up, clean the house, at least I’m not drinking/Run around just so I don’t have to think about thinking/That silent sense of content that everyone gets/Just disappears as soon as the sun sets
