  • Lyrics
  • The closing track of the deluxe version of The Architect, this was inspired by Amy, the documentary film about Amy Winehouse. Paloma Faith told HMV.com:

    "The deluxe version has a track called 'Price Of Fame', which I wrote right after I'd seen the film about Amy Winehouse, it really struck a chord with me, how no one can look after someone and how the media played such a role in her demise, how they made her laughing stock when she was suffering so much. So I wrote a song for her with the band she recorded 'Back to Black' with."

If counterpoint and polyrhythms are your thing, you might love these guys. Even by Progressive Rock standards, they were one of the most intricate bands of the '70s. Then their lead singer gave us Bon Jovi.
