Riff: Green Day – “Amy”

Nov 13, 2012

Is your heart singing out of tune?/Are your eyes just singing the blues?

from Amy lyrics by Green Day

A quiet electric guitar solo curtain on a tragic miss of a triple-album pillar, “Amy” save a little face with more misogyny redemption on an LP rife with the opposite, Billie Joe setting up a post-war rock ballad in the key of regret, earnestly repping Amy Winehouse. But what a case for a 7”.
