Re: Amy Winehouse found dead in flat

Hey Ouchboy, did you change your avatar to your new hero yet? Maybe you can take up where she left off.

I'm not a flouncer - whatever the hell that is. Apparently on this forum you are not allowed personal opinions.

And why can I even login still?
You get bullies in real life and you get bullies on internet forums; the latter would appear to be even worse.

So I'm a bully? Is that it? I don't think so, never even occurred to me.

Did you prove your claim that she didn't write her songs? You were asked a comparable question about 2 of the beatles which you did not respond.

So far, for me you are full of fail.

A simple search would show that it is common knowledge that she co-wrote some of them.

The beatles also co-wrote their songs and some were solely written by one member. What is there to not understand?

re the beatles, the credits showed they were co written but many songs were actually written by one of lennon or mccartney

1.- What's the verb in co-write??
2.- Do you have said statement where she says, Oh They heavily did this one. Like in Rehab this and that part?

So you are saying that Paul McCartney was not a writer after the song "yesterday"?

No I specifically said 'and some were written solely by one member'.

For the record it is a fact that many big artists claim a song writing credit even when they had no input to the song. I'm not suggesting that it applies here, but it is relevant.

I'm not trying to make any point, I'm merely responding to Ouchboy.
Originally I said she was a good singer of other people's songs, to which he took great offence, claiming that she wrote her own work and telling me to prove what I said.

I have long since said that this is besides the point....

That asking to have one's account deleted is not the same as flouncing. Simples.

No she didn't. It was mainly written by a production team.

I have problem with people making unsubstantiated claims. Specially when criticizing an ability that you yourself do not seem to possess.

I have the ability to drink myself to death but I chose not to. Ditto for drugs, but I can't see the point you're making.

She was a very good singer of other peoples songs, not much talent needed for that. Sorry, but it had to be said.
