The vocalist noted that the song showed that people make mistakes and should learn from them.
Gibbons said in his words when asked his favorite song:
“‘Love Is a Losing Game’ by Amy Winehouse says everything about life, love, and loss. She sings with the spirit of Billie Holiday and Nina Simone. And the tragedy, humans are a bit rubbish, man. We make mistakes; we don’t get it right. There’s great room for growth if you are self-aware enough to realize you’ve got something wrong.”
