14 Sept 2011 - I have added self-penned captions. It's not perfect because there are a few lines even I can't understand and because I have tried to omit unnecessary words. But it is certainly better than the Google captions!

Comments no longer accepted because I can't be bothered deleting and blocking nasty spiteful people.

By the way this video is from when she had just released Back to Black. She was still with her ex Alex and was not into drugs yet. People seem quick to say she looks like a "crackhead", but she wasn't.

For 7 years Amy's music has had an enormous impact on me. Both her albums came out at a time when significant relationships in my life ended, her songs were were soundtracks and love letters to my ears. She was an amazing talent and some would say, a musical genius.

I don't know about the longevity of much popular music made today but I know in 30, 40, 50 years time people will still be listening to Amy.

The lesson is popularity breeds intense media scrutiny. No one should have to put up with paps following them around. I have no doubt that this harassment of Amy destroyed her ability to live a "normal" life, everything from being able to go to dinner with friends to get a bit drunk at the pub.
Add in low self-esteem, depression and dark influences and you have a recipe for disaster. Their influence, I believe, played a part in her demise.
Do not buy their shitty little rags.
