Gap Song: Cupid – Amy Winehouse

I don’t know whether you have the same: Whenever I listen to Amy Winehouse’s singing, I feel sad and confused. There hasn’t been even one time when I didn’t think: Why did she have to die?

Sure, I know it’s because of her own addiction problems, but that doesn’t cure my own little tic, which is trying to imagine which other songs she would have written had she continued to live. It just seems such a terrible waste. Sorry for the cliche.

Listen to the Song. Fill in the gaps.
