London, Aug 18 (IANS) Troubled British singer Amy Winehouse is obsessed with the movie “The Wizard of Oz” and is making her new album on the basis of the Hollywood classic. reports that Winehouse’s album has songs that have been inspired by the movie’s soundtrack.

A friend said: “When Amy was writing ‘Back To Black’ she was surrounding herself with 1960s soul music and girl groups and that was obvious in the record. This time it will be sounds from The Wizard Of Oz.”

“She loves the surreal look, sound and score. One of her new songs heavily samples the theme tune. And the soundtrack and score will be a theme running throughout the record. It’s really interesting, if a little bizarre, but I suppose that’s what you would expect from her at the moment,” the friend added.
