we wanted to move out.

She had family issues

and I had lots of things

going on with my family,

and we looked after each other.

It was amazing.

We were young kids

and we were best friends,

in a flat on our own.

She loved it.

Juliette would sing,

Amy would sing...

And we just used

to see each other all the time.

We used to go

to so many gigs with Amy.

And when she first started

doing her music,

we were all so excited

and proud of it.

Where are we, Amy?

- We're in Brighton.

- Yeah, but what are we in now?

Um, we're in, uh...

What's-it Square,

Regency Square, in a black cab.

In a white cab. A beautiful cab.

- And Lauren's with us.

- Ah!

D'you know what my favourite

thing about Nicky is?

His legs.


Know what my other

favourite thing is?

- What?

- Not your hair.

She could make you feel

so important...

and then, all of a sudden,

very unimportant.

And then make you feel

so important again.

That was what she did.

She liked to get people

into a comfortable position

and then shock them.

If I got my hair right,

then what would that mean?

That would mean

you were ready to marry me.

Her first relationship

was with an older guy

called Chris.

She really got the hots for him.

Madly in love with him.

She wrote a few songs

about having the hots for him.

And then, eventually,

she lost interest and...

She always used to talk about it

and started writing about that.

I think when I was growing up,

the music that was

in the pop charts or, you know,

the music that was...

that people were releasing

at the time,

I just thought,

"This isn't music,"

this is watered down,

or this is, you know, just crap,

someone else has written it

for you

"and you have to sing it."

It's very much the case

with some music today.

I really started writing music
