Green Day - Green Day Pen Amy Winehouse Song
Rockers Green Day have penned a moving tribute song to late soul singer Amy Winehouse.
The Rehab hitmaker passed away last month (Jul11) at the age of 27, and the American Idiot rockers decided to honour her with an acoustic ballad entitled Amy.
The band unveiled the song at a surprise concert last week (ends12Aug11) in California, reports MTV.
The touching track features the opening lines: "Amy, is your heart singing out of tune/ Are your eyes just singing the blues/ Dirty records from another time/ Some blood stains on your shoes."
Near the end of the track, frontman Billy Armstrong laments: "May I have this last dance/ By chance if we should meet?/ Can you write me a lullaby?/ So we can sing you to sleep."
