This song, “Love Is a Losing Game”  seems very familiar to me—as if it were from 30 years ago. It seems like a retro sound, similar to music from the James Bond movies.

But Amy Winehouse, a British superstar, wrote it and first performed it in 2006. Her soulful and unique style and sound was so touching and heartfelt.

Her music seems extra poignant now knowing what happened to her;  she was an original.

From Amy’s album  Back to Black:

 

And from her album   Lioness: Hidden Treasures:

Once Upon a Time in America (1984) Directed by Sergio Leone.

By Paul Goldfinger, Editor  @Blogfinger

This movie was made in 1984 by the great Italian director Sergio Leone.  It owes a lot to the 1972 film The Godfather, but it is wonderful in its own right.   The soundtrack is by Ennio Morricone whose association with Leone is well known.  (As in “The Good, The Bad and the Ugly”)

The video below shows the wonder of moviemaking as done by a master, even if viewed as still images.  The acting is great, especially with Elizabeth McGovern (the adult Deborah), DiNiro (Noodles)  and James Woods (Max.)

“Deborah’s Theme” is magical and plays in the background of this video and, during the movie, when the beautiful Deborah glides across the screen.
