Welcome to this tribute to Amy Winehouse,

0:00:050:00:08

in which I want to celebrate the best things about her.

0:00:080:00:11

She was a great singer, an amazing artist, and also my friend.

0:00:110:00:16

What I'd like to show you is some of the TV shows that we made together

0:00:160:00:19

here at the BBC between 2003 and 2007.

0:00:190:00:24

The first thing I'd like you to see is her on Later

0:00:240:00:28

making her television debut in 2003 singing Stronger Than Me.

0:00:280:00:33

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:00:330:00:35

# You should be stronger than me

0:00:490:00:53

# You've been here seven years longer than me

0:00:540:00:59

# Don't you know you're supposed to be the man?

0:00:590:01:03

# Not pale in comparison to who you think I am

0:01:050:01:09

# Cos you always wanna talk it through

0:01:090:01:12

# I don't care

0:01:120:01:14

# I always have to comfort you when I'm there

0:01:140:01:19

# But that's what I need you to do

0:01:190:01:22

# Stroke my hair

0:01:220:01:24

# When I've forgotten all of young love's joy

0:01:270:01:31

# Feel like a lady but you my lady boy

0:01:310:01:36

# You should be stronger than me

0:01:360:01:40

# But instead you're longer than frozen turkey

0:01:420:01:47

# Why d'you always put me in control?

0:01:470:01:51

# When all I need is for my man to live up to his role

0:01:510:01:57

# You always wanna talk it through

0:01:570:01:59

# I'm OK

0:01:590:02:01

# I always have to comfort you every day

0:02:010:02:07

# But that's what I need you to do

0:02:070:02:10

# Are you gay?

0:02:100:02:13

# When I've forgotten all of young love's joy

0:02:130:02:19

# Feel like a lady and you my lady boy

0:02:190:02:23

# He said the respect I made you earn

0:02:230:02:27

# Thought you had so many lessons to learn

0:02:290:02:34

# I said you don't know what love is

0:02:340:02:37

# Get a grip

0:02:370:02:40

# When it sounds as if you're reading from some other tired script

0:02:400:02:44

# Cos I'm not gonna meet your mother any time

0:02:440:02:48

# I just wanna grip your body over mine

0:02:490:02:54

# So please tell me why you think that's a crime

0:02:540:03:00

# Ooh, when I've forgotten all of young love's joy

0:03:000:03:07

# I feel like a lady and you my lady boy

0:03:070:03:11

# You should be stronger than me

0:03:110:03:15

# You should be stronger than me

0:03:170:03:21

# Oh, you should be stronger than me

0:03:210:03:26

# Oh, you should be stronger than me

0:03:260:03:31

# Hey, hey. #

0:03:310:03:32

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:04:140:04:16

# Your neighbours were screaming

0:04:440:04:47

# I don't have a key for downstairs

0:04:470:04:53

# So I punched all of the buzzers

0:04:530:04:57

# Hoping you wouldn't be there

0:04:570:05:02

# So now my head's hurting

0:05:020:05:05

# Cos you say I always get my own way

0:05:050:05:09

# But you were in the shower when I got there

0:05:090:05:14

# I'd have wanted to stay but I got nothing to say

0:05:140:05:19

# You were so beautiful before today

0:05:200:05:27

# But then I heard of what you had to say

0:05:270:05:33

# Man, that was ugly

0:05:330:05:36

# The Moschino bra you bought me at Christmas

0:05:360:05:42

# Put it in the box

0:05:420:05:46

# Frank's in there

0:05:460:05:48

# I don't care

0:05:480:05:50

# Put it in the box

0:05:520:05:54

# Just take it

0:05:540:05:57

# Take the box

0:05:570:06:01

# Take the box

0:06:010:06:06

# I came home this evening

0:06:120:06:14

# And nothing felt like how it should be

0:06:140:06:20

# I feel like writing you a letter

0:06:200:06:24

# But that's not me

0:06:240:06:26

# You know me

0:06:260:06:28

# I feel so fucking angry

0:06:280:06:32

# I don't wanna be reminded of you

0:06:320:06:37

# So when I left my mess in your kitchen

0:06:370:06:41

# I said goodbye to your bedroom

0:06:410:06:44

# It smelled like you, Mr False Pretence

0:06:440:06:48

# You don't make sense

0:06:480:06:51

# But I guess I just don't know you

0:06:510:06:55

# But you make me cry

0:06:550:06:57

# Where's my kiss goodbye?

0:06:570:06:59

# Whoa, when I said I love you

0:06:590:07:03

# The Moschino bra you bought me at Christmas

0:07:030:07:09

# Put it in the box

0:07:090:07:13

# Frank's in there

0:07:130:07:15

# I don't care

0:07:150:07:17

# Put it in the box

0:07:190:07:22

# Just take it

0:07:220:07:25

# Take the box

0:07:250:07:27

# Just take it, take it

0:07:300:07:33

# Take the box

0:07:330:07:36

# Now just take it. #

0:07:360:07:42

SHE SCATS

0:07:420:07:46

# Mm-mm-mm. #

0:07:460:07:51

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:07:510:07:54

Thank you.

0:07:550:07:56

One of the things that I really loved about Amy was she was funny.

0:07:570:08:01

She was an incredibly great musician.

0:08:010:08:04

She had a great weight of talent but she treated it very lightly.

0:08:040:08:08

One of the artists and we both liked very much was Dinah Washington.

0:08:080:08:11

So on this Hootenanny, which I think we did in 2004,

0:08:110:08:15

she wanted to do a Dinah song, which is Teach Me Tonight.

0:08:150:08:18

I hope you'll agree with me that she hits it perfectly.

0:08:180:08:21

# Did you say I had a lot to learn?

0:08:240:08:29

# Well, baby, don't think I'm trying not to learn

0:08:310:08:37

# Since this is the perfect spot to learn

0:08:380:08:43

# Go on, teach me tonight

0:08:460:08:51

# Starting with the ABC of it

0:08:520:08:58

# Right down to the XYZ of it

0:09:000:09:06

# Help me solve the mystery of it

0:09:080:09:13

# Go on, teach me tonight

0:09:160:09:20

# The sky's a blackboard high above you

0:09:230:09:31

# If a shooting star goes by

0:09:330:09:38

# I'll use that star to write 'I love you'

0:09:400:09:46

# A thousand times across the sky

0:09:490:09:53

# One thing isn't very clear, my love

0:09:530:09:57

# Should the teacher stand so near, my love?

0:09:590:10:05

# Graduation's almost here, my love

0:10:060:10:12

# Mmm, teach me tonight

0:10:140:10:18

# I'll use that star to write I love you

0:10:380:10:44

# A thousand times across the sky

0:10:450:10:50

# One thing isn't very clear my love

0:10:500:10:56

# Should the teacher stand so near my love?

0:10:570:11:03

# Graduation's almost here, my love

0:11:030:11:09

# Oh, teach me

0:11:100:11:13

# Oh, teach me tonight. #

0:11:130:11:21

I'm a jazz singer, you know, I'm a jazz singer.

0:11:270:11:29

That's what is natural to me.

0:11:290:11:32

But because I'm a jazz singer, I don't feel like I have to

0:11:320:11:35

prove a lot of stuff as far as my music is concerned.

0:11:350:11:39

I can be a bit more, I can be straighter, if you know what I mean.

0:11:390:11:43

I can mix it up a bit more.

0:11:430:11:45

And you know, the music that I love, I love old school and motown

0:11:450:11:49

as well as jazz, and hip hop, there's other stuff in there.

0:11:490:11:54

So it's cool that I can put other stuff in there.

0:11:540:11:57

I'm lucky in that I was never trying to be like, England's jazz singer.

0:11:570:12:03

So I've been able to do exactly what I want to do.

0:12:030:12:07

I just do what I love and I'm lucky that I've been able to do that.

0:12:070:12:10

And please God that I will be able to do that.

0:12:100:12:12

# Tried to make me go to rehab I said no, no, no

0:12:140:12:18

# Yes, I've been black, but when I come back, you'll know, know, know

0:12:210:12:27

# I ain't got the time and if my Daddy thinks I'm fine

0:12:270:12:33

# Just try to make me go to rehab I won't go, go, go

0:12:340:12:39

# I'd rather be at home with Ray

0:12:410:12:45

# I ain't got 70 days

0:12:470:12:52

# Because there's nothing there's nothing you can teach me

0:12:530:12:58

# I can't learn from Mr Hathaway

0:13:010:13:07

# I didn't get a lot in class

0:13:080:13:12

# But I know it don't come in a shot glass

0:13:130:13:21

# They tried to make me go to rehab I said no, no, no

0:13:210:13:27

# Yes I've been black but when I come back you'll know, know, know

0:13:270:13:33

# I ain't got the time and if my Daddy thinks I'm fine

0:13:340:13:40

# Just try to make me go to rehab I won't go, go, go

0:13:410:13:47

# The man said why do you think you're here?

0:13:480:13:53

# I said, I got no idea

0:13:540:13:58

# Said I'm gonna

0:14:000:14:02

# I'm gonna lose my baby

0:14:020:14:06

# So I always keep a bottle near

0:14:070:14:15

# He said, "I just think you're depressed"

0:14:150:14:21

# Just me

0:14:210:14:23

# Yeah, baby

0:14:230:14:25

# And the rest

0:14:250:14:28

# They tried to make me go to rehab

0:14:280:14:31

# I said, No, no, no

0:14:310:14:34

# Yes I've been black

0:14:340:14:36

# But when I come back

0:14:360:14:38

# You'll know, know, know

0:14:380:14:42

# I don't ever want to drink again

0:14:420:14:46

# I just

0:14:480:14:50

# I just need a friend

0:14:500:14:55

# Now I'm not gonna spend ten weeks

0:14:550:15:01

# Have everyone think I'm

0:15:010:15:05

# On the mend

0:15:050:15:09

# And it's just not my pride

0:15:090:15:14

# It's just till these

0:15:140:15:18

# Tears have dried

0:15:180:15:21

# They tried to make me go to rehab

0:15:210:15:24

# I said, no, no, no

0:15:240:15:28

# Yes I've been black

0:15:280:15:29

# But when I come back

0:15:290:15:31

# You'll know, know, know

0:15:310:15:34

# I ain't got the time

0:15:340:15:38

# And if my daddy thinks I'm fine

0:15:380:15:41

# Just try to make me go to rehab

0:15:410:15:45

# I won't go, go, go. #

0:15:450:15:47

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:15:490:15:51

At the piano I'm going to have a bit of a chat with an incredibly talented woman

0:15:540:15:58

who's got this album out... Amy Winehouse!

0:15:580:16:01

-Welcome to our show, Amy.

-Thank you for having me.

0:16:020:16:06

Well, I suppose the public displays of affection...

0:16:060:16:09

..Do you approve or disapprove of them?

0:16:090:16:11

I approve wholeheartedly.

0:16:110:16:13

-Now your writing on this record is fantastic. It's really great.

-Thank you very much.

0:16:130:16:18

Some great songs that you've written on here.

0:16:180:16:21

The first one you played, Rehab.

0:16:210:16:22

-Yes.

-When did you write that one?

0:16:220:16:24

I wrote that in February or March in New York with Mark Ronson,

0:16:240:16:28

and we were just walking down the street, and I sang the hook.

0:16:280:16:32

And he burst out laughing, and he said, "Who's that?"

0:16:320:16:34

I said, "I just made it up." And he was like,

0:16:340:16:36

"That would be really cool."

0:16:360:16:38

And I said, "Let's go to the studio now. We can knock it out now."

0:16:380:16:41

-You went straight there and did it, just like that?

-Yes, literally.

0:16:410:16:45

It's like your voice has become more powerful.

0:16:450:16:47

-Your songwriting's become stronger. Do you feel that?

-I'm very proud of this record,

0:16:470:16:52

and I feel that unless I could have bettered myself with the last album,

0:16:520:16:55

then I might as well give up.

0:16:550:16:57

-It's a different vibration. It's got a Motown groove, hasn't it?

-Yes!

0:16:570:17:00

-What was the first music that you listened to?

-A lot of jazz,

0:17:000:17:04

a lot of Sarah Vaughan.

0:17:040:17:06

Loads of Sarah Vaughan songs: April In Paris.

0:17:060:17:08

But I think one of my earliest memories is listening to my granddad

0:17:080:17:13

play Tenderly, God rest his soul.

0:17:130:17:16

And did your granddad play an instrument?

0:17:160:17:18

Or did he play it on a record?

0:17:180:17:19

No, he'd play it. He'd play it off a record.

0:17:190:17:22

-Do you know how to sing that?

-Yes.

0:17:220:17:24

-Would you give that a go?

-Yeah!

0:17:240:17:27

Shall we give Tenderly a go?

0:17:270:17:30

Let's get a tempo. Hang on, hang on!

0:17:300:17:32

Could you give us a bit of this?

0:17:320:17:34

CLAPPING

0:17:340:17:35

# The evening breeze

0:17:440:17:46

# Caressed the trees

0:17:460:17:48

# Tenderly

0:17:490:17:51

# The evening breeze

0:17:530:17:54

# Caressed the trees

0:17:540:17:57

# Tenderly

0:17:570:18:00

# I can't forget how

0:18:010:18:04

# Two hearts met

0:18:040:18:06

# Breathlessly

0:18:060:18:07

# Your arms opened wide

0:18:070:18:11

# And closed me inside

0:18:110:18:15

# You took my love

0:18:150:18:17

# You took my heart

0:18:170:18:19

# So breathless

0:18:190:18:22

# Tenderly. #

0:18:220:18:27

AAPLAUSE AND CHEERING

0:18:270:18:30

Your granddad would love that!

0:18:300:18:32

-We love it too. Amy Winehouse!

-Thanks for having me.

0:18:320:18:35

# All I can ever be to you

0:18:380:18:40

# Is the darkness that we knew

0:18:400:18:42

# And this regret I've got accustomed to

0:18:420:18:46

# Once it felt so right

0:18:460:18:48

# When we were at our hight

0:18:480:18:50

# Waiting for you in the hotel at night

0:18:500:18:54

# I knew I hadn't met my match

0:18:540:18:56

# But every moment we could snatch

0:18:560:18:58

# I don't know why I got so attached

0:18:580:19:02

# It's my responsibility

0:19:020:19:04

# You don't owe nothing to me

0:19:040:19:05

# But to walk away I have no capacity

0:19:050:19:10

# He walks away

0:19:100:19:12

# The sun goes down

0:19:120:19:14

# He takes the day but I am grown

0:19:140:19:18

# And in your grey

0:19:180:19:19

# In this blue shade

0:19:190:19:22

# My tears dry on their own

0:19:220:19:26

# I don't understand

0:19:260:19:28

# Why do I stress the man

0:19:280:19:30

# When there's so many better things at hand?

0:19:300:19:33

# We could have never had it all

0:19:330:19:36

# We had to hit a wall

0:19:360:19:38

# So this is inevitable withdrawal

0:19:380:19:42

# Even if I stop wanting you

0:19:420:19:44

# And perspective pushes through

0:19:440:19:46

# I'll be some next man's other woman soon

0:19:460:19:50

# I cannot play myself again

0:19:500:19:52

# I should just be my own best friend

0:19:520:19:54

# Not play myself in the head

0:19:540:19:56

# With stupid men

0:19:560:19:57

# He walks away

0:19:580:20:00

# The sun goes down

0:20:000:20:03

# He takes the day but I am grown

0:20:030:20:05

# And in your grey

0:20:050:20:07

# In this blue shade

0:20:070:20:10

# My tears dry on their own

0:20:100:20:14

# So we are history

0:20:140:20:16

# Your shadow covers me

0:20:160:20:18

# The sky above is ablaze

0:20:180:20:23

# He walks away

0:20:230:20:24

# The sun goes down

0:20:240:20:26

# He takes the day but I am grown

0:20:260:20:29

# And in your grey

0:20:290:20:31

# In this blue shade

0:20:310:20:33

Amy Winehouse!

0:28:400:28:42

We now have the last two pieces of music with Amy.

0:28:430:28:47

We're going to see Love's A Losing Game from the Mercury Prize in 2007

0:28:470:28:51

but first, a duet with Paul Weller

0:28:510:28:54

of Don't Go To Strangers from our Hootenanny in 2006.

0:28:540:28:58

This really is one of my favourite pieces and I think it shows the strength of Amy's voice.

0:28:580:29:03

The song starts and it sounds quite fragile.

0:29:030:29:06

Paul sings it beautifully.

0:29:060:29:08

But then Amy comes in and there's something about her delivery

0:29:080:29:12

that suddenly draws you to the song.

0:29:120:29:14

It makes you realise what poetry this song has,

0:29:140:29:17

and that's the job of the true great singer.

0:29:170:29:19

That's why she was like Edith Piaf or Bessie Smith or one of the great singers of all time.

0:29:190:29:24

Please sit back and enjoy - Don't Go To Strangers.

# Build your dreams

# Someone to love

Girls need to bring themselves forward though, you know

0:33:540:33:57

I was never part of a scene where I was the leader of a bunch of Jewish girls that sung jazz,

0:33:570:34:02

you know what I mean?

0:34:020:34:03

I don't know anyone like myself, you know what I mean.

0:34:030:34:06

So, erm...

0:34:060:34:08

So, yeah.

0:34:100:34:12

But I know that if I am honest about myself

0:34:120:34:14

and am honest about my time and what I do with my life,

0:34:140:34:20

You know, I know...

0:34:200:34:22

I know there's girls that will hear that in my album

0:34:240:34:28

and be like, "Yeah, I've felt that and I'm not a dickhead".

0:34:280:34:31

"I've felt that and it's cool. Other people feel this."

0:34:310:34:34

That's what I'm here for.

0:34:340:34:36

Cos I've been through times where I've been so fucked up about a situation

0:34:360:34:40

that I've had to just be, like, write everything down.

0:34:400:34:43

Even feelings that I don't want to acknowledge.

0:34:430:34:46

Especially feelings that I don't want to acknowledge.

0:34:460:34:49

Things that I wish were not true and they are.

0:34:490:34:51

You know, it's just...

0:34:510:34:54

good because someone else might hear that and be like,

0:34:540:34:58

"I'm not an idiot for feeling them things".

0:34:580:35:00

Or "I'm not weak for feeling them things" or

"I'm not a mug for feeling them things about this man",

Jools Holland presents a collection of Amy Winehouse's performances on Later, the Hootenanny and at the Mercury Prize between 2003 and 2007. Winehouse made her TV debut on Later in 2003 with songs from her debut album Frank. Like Jools, she loved classic jazz and blues singers like Dinah Washington and Sarah Vaughan, and the two Londoners hit it off. Amy returned to play with Jools's Orchestra at that year's Hootenanny, to Later in 2006 for the launch of Back to Black and to that year's Hootenanny to perform Toots's Monkey Man and duet with Paul Weller.

Back to Black was nominated for the 2007 Mercury Prize and Winehouse performed a heartrending version of Love's Just a Losing Game accompanied only by her guitarist - a fitting end to this celebration of the mercurial, brilliant and troubled singer in her prime.
