Tragic star Amy Winehouse hated performing some of her greatest hits as they were a bitter reminder of her failed romance with ex-husband Blake Fielder-Civil.
The British singer chronicled her turbulent relationship with Fielder-Civil in tracks including Back to Black and Love Is A Losing Game, but after the couple split in 2009, she could no longer face the music.
According to her father Mitch, Winehouse felt trapped by her most famous songs as she was convinced fans always wanted to hear them in concert.
Mitch tells Britain's The Guardian newspaper, "She said to me many times, 'I can't do these songs any more, Dad.' I said, 'Well, write some new ones then. Or do covers. People just want to hear you sing. You know, do your jazz stuff. Get up there and sing a nursery rhyme; they'll pay £100 to come and see you. They just want to see you, they want to see you enjoying yourself. There's no point in getting up there and singing songs that make you cry. Sing The Nearness of You.'
"Lovely songs she could sing: Black Magic, Fly Me to the Moon. But those other songs were really a millstone around her neck. I can't listen to any of them."
Winehouse was 27 years old when she was found dead last July (11) after a booze binge.
