Boy George writes song about Amy Winehouse
Boy George has revealed that he has written a song about Amy Winehouse.

The former Culture Club frontman wrote the song during his recent stint in prison for beating and falsely imprisoning a man in his east London flat.

The song, which is titled 'Your Pain Makes a Beautiful Sound', features the lyrics: "You’re a genius, you’re a car crash/ It’s hard to say what you do best."

The pair have met once, backstage at London's KOKO venue, where they discussed one of the shared favourite songs, the Phil Spector-produced 'He Hit Me (And It Felt Like A Kiss)', which was sung by The Crystals and written by Carole King and Gerry Goffin.

"I wrote a lot of stuff, which will be released next year," Boy George told The Times of his stay in HMP Edmunds Hill in Suffolk. "I wrote a diary, and songs.”
