New Amy Winehouse video

Blender has reviewed this video so beautifully, I see no reason to reinvent the wheel.

From Blender:
"Amy Winehouse's six Grammy nods once again brought the singer's talent — and not her tabloid antics — to the forefront. This piecemeal clip is mostly based on videos of Winehouse performing live, which fits into its nostalgic, "the way we were" vibe. But the wispy aesthetic also makes it seem like a premature eulogy. It's genuinely disturbing given the singer's current troubles — as the last shot deliberately fades out, you expect a to see stark text: "Amy Winehouse: 1983-2007." "And now, the final frame," she sings in her brilliantly smoke-soaked style, "love is a losing game." Coupled with this frightfully effective video, the sentiment becomes even more ominous. "

Chilling indeed.
