These are the only

three people left.

This is Mr. Alex Steele,

Mrs. Juliette Ashby,

- Mrs. Amy Winehouse.

- Ah, my booby.

In other words,

Mrs. Amy Winehouse.

And everyone else is gone.

D'you want a lick

of the lollipop?

Come on, have a lick.

- No, I don't.

- Have a lick. Come here.

Come and have a lick.

No one wants to lick

your slobbery lollipop.

- Lauren, just lick it.

- Here's me.

It's my 14th...

birthday evening and party.

Happy birthday to you

Happy birthday to you

Happy birthday dear Lauren

Happy birthday...

To... you

Oh, wow.

Moon River wider than a mile

I'm crossing you in style...

I was singing

with a little jazz unit,

the National Youth

Jazz Orchestra,

must've been about 16,

and I just loved jazz.

Dinah Washington...

Sarah Vaughan, Tony Bennett.

I learned to sing from listening

to stuff like Monk,

and a lot of soloists as well,

rather than just listening

to singers.

I learned from everything,

really.

...same rainbow's end

Waiting round the bend

My Huckleberry friend

Moon River

And me

So singing has always been

important to me,

but I never thought, "I love

singing, I'll be a singer."

I just thought, "I'm lucky"

there is something

I can always do, if I want to.

"I'm so lucky like that."

But I didn't think

it would be a career choice.

And me

Moon River and me

What's the date?

- Today?

- 24th.

- Is it?

- Yeah.

- The what?

- 24th.

- Of what?

- January.

And, um, what day is it?

- Saturday.

- And what year is it?

Lunchtime.

I was a 19-year-old

office junior

for a promotions company

owned by Simon Fuller.

I just started to try

and kind of blag it myself

as a talent scout.

I was definitely

out of my depth.

My friend Tyler

is a singer.

He was with Nicky Shymansky

and Tyler said,

"My friend Amy sings jazz

and she's great."

Nicky said to me,

"Want some studio time?"

I said, "For what?"

And he was like,

"Well, if you'd write songs,

we'd make a record,

get a record deal."

I was, like,

"What do you get out of it?"

Hello.

I look ugly.

Yeah, look at you.

You look lovely.

I don't. My chin's massive.

- Worried about your chin?

- That's there forever.

There is no greater thrill

Than what you bring to me

No sweeter song

Than what you sing

Sing to me

- Decide to record it?

- Yeah.

Hello.

I'm just here... smoking a fag.

I just like to...

Oh, I look so grim.

I look like a floating head.

You know, I've got no hair.

I'm just on a black screen.

There's my hand.

What's going on?

We'd recorded

quite a few demo recordings,

and I started to talk about

whether she'd ever consider

writing.

She said she's not sure

about writing songs,

but she's written

a lot of poems.

And he's my life

She knew full well

she'd been writing songs,

but they were very

personal songs.

I wouldn't write anything

unless it was directly personal

to me,

just 'cause I wouldn't be able

to tell the story right

because I wouldn't have done it.

Even though some of it

is personal in a sad way,

I'd never let it just be that.

I'll always put a punchline

in the song.

Just try and be different

with my lyrics.

Someone gave me a CD, two songs,

and they weren't necessarily

what you'd call hit songs,

but they conveyed an emotion

that just touched me.

When you have that as an artist,

you usually have

a story to tell behind it.

But it's a big leap of faith.

I think my boss

even questioned the deal,

because we were really

committing to giving

an unsigned artist

close to 250,000 pounds.

We both knew we wanted

to live with each other,

we both knew
