theodp (442580) writes "All the cool music service kids — Apple, Spotify, and Amazon — were dancing on Amy Winehouse's grave after the singer's untimely death at age 27. So, why did the web rip Microsoft a new one for following suit and suggesting its Twitter followers remember Winehouse by downloading her 'Back to Black' album on the company's Zune music service? BTW, for you students of numerology, Winehouse is the sixth member of the so-called 'Forever 27 Club', where she joins Brian Jones, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison, and Kurt Cobain in Rock and Roll Heaven."
