US viewers only... So to those of you who can see it - please share your thoughts! I'm so pissed at MTV and their idiotic restrictions right now.

what are the restrictions? I'm out of the loop and if u could fill me in, would appreciate.

so wonderful to see an Amy 2011 interview. I'm so incredibly sad right now. just full of meloncholy. I have known these feelings of utter sadness would hit me hard w/this release. I intend on buying one for my brother, who also adores Tony and loves Amy. I wonder if the pre order is available on Amazon now, Elsie? I'll have to check.

thanks, Dear Elsie for posting. I would never have seen it because I don't have reason to go to mtv website.

For those who can't see it, here is a little hastily typed transcript. It's only 2:16 long and it's mixed with clips of them singing "Body and Soul". She looks beautiful. Here it goes:

The first time I met Tone- can I call him Tone? (nods) Thanks. The first time I met Tone- should you ask him first, really, before we start? The first time I met Tone was, I took my dad, my stepmother, and my boyfriend to see him at Royal Albert Hall and we went both nights.

When my dad saw that me and Tone would be singing "Body and Soul", my dad personally, himself, said (imitating Mitch) "Oh, it's only my favorite song in the world you're going to sing. Oh my God, do you even know it?". And I was like, "Of course I know it, Mitchell, I'm your daughter. Of course I know it."

Um, and it was really exciting that he chose that song because I do love it and it's such a beautifully written song and it's a song you can do a lot with. So I was really excited to sing that and um, the ending just worked out like perfect. Us singing together just blended perfectly and it couldn't have been better. (smiling)

"Anyone who sings a tune so sweet is passin' by..."

That was awesome! I haven't been able to find any video clips of her just talking for 2010-2011. I just wanted to see what her personality was like. That's so cool. Good find Elsie.

to hear her personal thoughts on what the song meant to her, and you can just see the satisfaction on her face as she explains how well it turned out, it makes me so incredibly happy that she was so filled with joy at doing that song w/Tony and the end result. somehow to see her filled with happiness as she states that, it gives me such comfort.

They don't let anyone outside US see the videos... And they only post certain things on MTV US. Ofcourse, things I would most like to see, like this one. >:-( It's available for preorder, yes!

Thanks so much for your effort, whatsinsideher! I hope someone uploads it to youtube sometime soon.

LMFAO @ her imitating Mitch lmfao She sounded just like him!

Amy, are you happy?
She squints suspiciously at me.
"About what?"
About life.
"I'm happy about this salad."

You can get a US IP with Hotspot Shield, just figured it out. (mods can delete this post if we're not allowed to post this stuff, sorry)

...her voice sounds so much deeper. She seems so put together and healthy. Makes you smile and tear up at the same time. Ffs, what happened? I can't wrap my head around it. Life played some insanely cruel tricks with her.

i hate to talk like this-She seemed so lucid and coherent in this clip that its hard to believe she not here on earth with us today.

Also, at the end of the song she kisses her Star of David pendant, I wonder if she is thanking God that she was able to do this? or perhaps sending love up to her Nan ?
What do you think?

Amy should have done more stuff like this, gone on the road with Tony or something. Those big venue shows never fit her.

Her irritation with her dad was funny. She even called him "Mitchell", like he was some wayward boy.

There was something different about her face in the last months of her life. Not sure what it was. Fuller? Maybe because she was drinking? She seemed coherent and together though, so I was happy to see that.

I agree about the face. And her voice was deeper. But O My God, how wonderful and bittersweet to watch and see and hear her again. She was so precious. I just love how characteristic she was, her tone was so comforting. Just hearing her intonation and seeing her little smile and eyes, brings me so much joy, honestly.

Or some medication? Curious to see how much is revealed at the inquest. Beautiful to see her so happy!
