After the sad death of Amy Winehouse last month, the first instinct of many of her fans was to put on one of her records and celebrate the wonderful music that she left behind.

Over her two albums Frank and Back To Black, Winehouse showcased her stunning soul voice and irresistible knack for tear-jerking confessional songwriting.

Of the thousands of you who voted in Digital Spy's poll to find her best single, 'Back To Black' won with 31.8%. In second place was 'Tears Dry On Their Own' with 20.1%, followed by 'Love Is A Losing Game' with 12.2%

In fourth was 'You Know I'm No Good' with 10.6%, Mark Ronson hookup 'Valerie' rounded out the top five on 10.2%, leaving 'Rehab' just outside with 8.1%.



"'Back To Black' by a clear mile. Absolutely stunning song," said reader Alan O'Connor. "'Back to Black' easily the best one she did," agreed Paul Bontiff.

Others felt that her early work has been overlooked. "Half the people voting probably won't have heard the singles from the first album," suggested Brett Kershaw. "'Help Yourself' is exquisite... as are 'Take The Box', 'Stronger Than Me' and 'In My Bed'. The whole Frank album is sensational."

This week, it was announced that Winehouse's duet with Tony Bennett on 'Body and Soul' will be her first posthumous single, with the proceeds going to the Amy Winehouse Foundation.
