Amy Winehouse Died One Year Ago Today – BBC Tribute With Jools Holland

Oh, Amy.

A year has gone by since Amy Winehouse died.  We’ve watched as Amy was remembered during various award shows, listened to other people perform her music and thought and written about how she affected us personally, but now I suppose we should be thankful she was with us at all.

Amy Winehouse and Paul Weller

Jools Holland put together a lovely, yet visually troubling group of performances from his U.K. television show.  Paul Weller is shown performing a soulful “Heard It Through the Grapevine” with Amy, and then again during the flawless “Don’t Talk to Strangers“.  Such perfect tenderness…


Amy’s physical deterioration over the years is apparent through this string of performances, but her talent always peeked through whatever mess she was drowning in…

We miss you, girl.
