Amy Winehouse's Final Video Leaves a Bittersweet Legacy  - Posted by Linda Sharps  on September 14, 2011 at 12:49 PM

She sings the lines and her voice soars, purrs, and becomes a presence that's almost visible in the studio: I spend my days in longing/And wondering why it's me you're wronging/I tell you I mean it/I'm all for you body and soul. Afterward, Amy Winehouse kisses her gold necklace and briefly looks up and points to the ceiling.

This is the last video and song recorded by Winehouse, and it's a beauty. Gone is the bizarre behavior that often accompanied her live concerts, and no fancy camera tricks or special effects make this video anything more than what it is: a perfectly lovely duet performance of "Body and Soul." Sharing the spotlight with Tony Bennett, Amy Winehouse truly looks like she's been resurrected from a healthier, happier time.

Her hair is piled up in that signature bouffant, her eyes are kohl-lined as always, and she appears in glowing good health and spirits. It's all the more tragic that the song was recorded in London's Abbey Road Studios this March, just months before her death.
