When I first saw the Back To Black video, I was completely blown away. And in the end, when she was tossing flowers into the grave. I always had a feeling, that she was somehow attending her own funeral, in a way? This was before her actual death, so I don't know what made me think this, since you never get to see who's grave she is actually at.

But does anyone else view it as this as well? If so did you think of it that way before her death? :)

I don't know, but Amy gave many indications that she did not expect a long life, going back at least to an interview when she was just 20 after her first album, Frank, came out. The part of the video you mention, tossing the flowers into the grave, caught my attention as well. I was viewing the video for the first time on the Saturday her death was announced. Just before that, at 2:38, the expression on her face seemed to me to reflect genuine grief. I was just starting to realize what a special person this Amy Winehouse was.

First time i saw the Back to black video was a coupple of minits after she died on that saturday . I readed the message of her past on the news on the internetpage of the Dutch Telegraph newspaper . It waked me up to search the back to black video on YouTube and saw it the FIRST TIME . When Amy walked away they projected the words on the little gravestone : "R.I.P. The heart of Amy Winehouse" ......I was COMPLETELY DEMOLISHED ! Realysing she was burrying her OWN heart . Have seen the Back to Black hundreds of times after that . Also the original version where the words R.I.P. the heart of Amy Winehouse not been projected and jou can see Amy longer walking away . I HATE IT to see Amy walking away from us into the unknown but play that video again and again with tears in my eayes . This tears wil NEVER DRY !

I remember when I first saw this video cause it gave me goose bumps. I think you just couldn't watch it without strong emotions. And I have to reveal that I was scared a bit. I do believe that she might have had a "panic attack" when shooting.

[MENTION=2511]tselekoglu[/MENTION], they may have removed it but I remember it still being on the screen at the end shortly after her death... and check out wiki's page for the song where it mentions this.

That's weird. Does this link work? http://www.clipfish....-back-to-black/

You serious? I don't know anybody that likes him, but maybe I'm too young. The only thing I know about him is that he was on Baywatch...

Yeah, I remember too. In the end, it was written RIP Amy Winehouse's heart. But why did they do that? I mean, why did they cut that part?

I don't know... maybe they thought it would be disturbing to people... although the whole video is kind of disturbing! But it was her reality/art and they should have left it alone.

Why do you think it's disturbing? And I found the uncensored video, it's from that;

I can remember reading/watching an interview with Alex Foden (not a fan of him, he seems to jump at any opportunity to get paid to talk about Amy) who said she got really upset during the grave scene and had to take a break to calm down (or something along those lines).

Wow, I didn't know that. It feels really bad, then why did they release that video? If she was annoyed, why didn't they shoot different one?

Found it:

I n a candid interview with The Mirror, he opened up about shooting the Back To Black video in 2006, saying Amy was traumatised when she hauntingly threw earth over her own coffin.Alex said: 'That video was tragically prophetic. What's really devastating is that I think Amy knew it all along.
'She had a virtual panic attack on set after seeing the grave with 'Here lies the heart of Amy Winehouse' on the headstone.
Amy's name was eventually removed from the tombstone as they continued shooting the footage and Alex calmed her down by bringing in 'a few hot toddies so she could get through the whole ordeal'.
