Blackbird

Album: Can't Touch Us Now (2016)
  • Suggs penned this poignant song in tribute to Amy Winehouse after meeting the songstress shortly before her death in 2011. "Three or four days before she died, I saw her walking down Dean Street with a guitar over her shoulder. She said: 'All right, nutty boy?' as she walked past," he recalled to The Guardian. "It made me laugh because I'm 55 f---ing years old, but it's such a Winehouse thing to say. 'All right, nutty boy?' It really got me. What a sad thing."
