"Tears Dry on Their Own" is a song by English singer and songwriter Amy Winehouse from her second and final studio album Back to Black (2006). "Tears Dry on Their Own" was released as the fourth single from Back to Black on 13 August 2007. While the melody and lyrics are composed by Winehouse, the music behind her voice is a sample interpolation of Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell's 1967 Motown classic hit "Ain't No Mountain High Enough", penned by the married duo of Ashford & Simpson. The original ballad version of the track is featured on the posthumous album Lioness: Hidden Treasures (2011). The song was featured in the documentary film based on the life and death of Winehouse, Amy (2015) and was also included on the film's soundtrack.

Composition

"Tears Dry on Their Own" has been described by NME as a "Motown-influenced pop song",[1] while Billy Hamilton of Drowned in Sound believed the song to be a soul song.[2]

Music video

The song's music video was shot in Los Angeles,[3][4] and was directed by David LaChapelle on 22 May 2007.[5] The clip features footage of Winehouse making her way down Hollywood Blvd and in a dim motel room. The hotel is the Grand Motel at 1479 S La Cienega Blvd, in Los Angeles. She doesn't pay attention to her surroundings (Why people walk into her) as she goes down Hollywood Blvd, and in the hotel room there are empty bottles and cigarettes hinting at her real life habits. The video for this song was the second to last filmed prior to Winehouse's death on 23 July 2011.

Chart performance

"Tears Dry on Their Own" became Winehouse's fourth consecutive single to chart inside the top 40 of the UK Singles Chart, when it entered at number 37 on 5 August 2007. It also became her eighth UK R&B top 40 hit. The single spent four weeks at number one on the UK Airplay Chart during August. After the song's physical release, the single climbed into the top 20, peaking at number 16. Therefore, "Tears Dry on Their Own" is Winehouse's second highest-charting single behind "Rehab" and the fourth consecutive top 30 hit from her second album. To date, it has spent 19 non-consecutive weeks on the UK Singles Chart, making it her fourth longest-running hit behind "Rehab" (57 weeks), "Valerie" (39 weeks), and "Back to Black" (34 weeks).

With sales of 84,750,[citation needed] "Tears Dry on Their Own" went on to become the UK's 93rd best-selling single of 2007.[6]

On 31 July, 2011, the song re-entered the UK Singles Chart at 27 after Winehouse's death.
