just as... to challenge myself,

to see what I could write or,

you know,

just because

there was nothing else there

that I could listen to

at the time.

And having listened to jazz

and, you know, great songwriters

like James Taylor

and Carole King,

it was very...

I felt like I had nothing new

that was coming out at the time

that really represented me

or the way I felt.

So I just started writing,

really, my own stuff

and from personal experience.

This is, um,

I Heard Love is Blind.

I'll just clip, clip my hair

out of the way, 'cause

it's gonna get on my nerves.

I remember thinking,

when she walked in,

she was this complete

force of nature.

I thought, "Wow,

there's something about you."

And I remember thinking,

"Please be good."

I wrote this in Miami with

a guy called Salaam and, um...

- and I'm really proud of it.

- She was 18

and she was a very classic

North London Jewish girl.

A lot of attitude.

Quite shy, but something

emanated from her.

She had a charisma.

When you looked

at her lyrical capability

and her melodic capability,

she was a very old soul

in a very young body.

And we did the deal

very, very quickly.

Amy's album came out yesterday

and how many has it sold so far?

A pretty staggering 800,


That is at least...

I've emptied my bank account

buying 600 of them.

That is, at least half my

friends have bought the album.

Bastards. I'd better call

the other half up today.

Snug in a rug.

She's going to get annoyed.


Explain what your little hub

is all about.

- Hello. Oh, you're coming.

- Sleeping!

Just give us a smile,

then we can turn the camera off.

Come on, just give us a quick

one. A one-second flash.

How big do you think

you're going to be?

I don't, at all,
