Amy Winehouse: The Girl Done Good

Amy Winehouse sadly joined the notourious 27 club on 23rd July 2011. Amy joins music icons such as Kurt Cobain, Jimmy Hendrix and Jim Morrission, who all tragically died at the young age of 27.

Whats even more tragic, is that she only released two albums, and did not live long enough to mature in to the true musicaly talented genius she clearly was.

The documentary – The Girl Done Good is a fitting tribute.

Amy Winehouse The Girl Done Good is a review of her music and career to date. Drawing on rare and classic performances, exclusive interviews, lengthy contributions from friends, colleagues, journalists and experts, and a host of other features, this DVD is a unique insight into the music, career and life of a cultural icon.

In an age when Z list celebrities garner more media attention than the truly gifted, Amy Winehouse is an anomaly, a woman of such extraordinary flair it beggars belief and a dream for the tabloids, all rolled into one. So while many of her chart topping contemporaries build here today gone tomorrow careers of little substance, Amys appeal is genuine, based on talent with a capital T.

  1. SHE WAS A WORTHLESS POS DOPE HEAD,,, GLAD SHE DEAD,,, NOTHING LOST,,,,,,

  2. This documentary feels like a dodgy one I watched on Prince where they interviewed and asked opinions of ‘the guy whose cousin went to school with a guy who played guitar once’. I don’t need someone to create a version of Amy Winehouse by repeating her lyrics back to me and interpreting them like a psychologist…

  3. If nobody’s got anything good to say about Amy they should shut the fuck up and take a look at their own lives. She was a legend missed by a lot of people.

  4. LOVE amy, did not love this documentary. at all…

  5. Thank you so much for making available the viewing of this documentary. R.I.P. Sweet Amy

  6. kurt cobian jimi hendrix….. amy winehouse.. doesnt rhyme…

  7. yawn tl;dr

  8. A tragic end to a young life just starting. Forget her adversity and let her music speak for itself. A true talent, a talent we never got to see mature into what was possible. Rest in Peace Amy.

  9. WHY IS THE VIDEO SO QUIET?

  10. WHY IS THE VIDEO SO QUIET?

    Uhhhh… is this the “musical genius” we’re talking about here?

  12. What is sad is she looked so beautiful and happy at 16, and then she lost way too much weight, got a boob job, and got addicted to alcohol and drugs. I really wish she could have gotten it together instead of losing her life.

  13. Wasn’t a big Amy Winehouse fan, but didn’t mind her music when I heard it. Bill Hicks said something along the lines of ” I WANT MY ROCKSTARS DEAD, PLAY FROM THE FUCKING HEART!!!” I think Amy followed this. RIP Amy. From the sounds of it, you touched many, no one can take that.

  14. Pure magic, what a girl, She will live in my heart , Amy whitehouse,,

  15. man somebody make this viewable in the united states even if its just texas :.-( i want to see it

  17. I am glad that the people who understand music and/or musicians themselves know how much talent she had.Addictions of any kind are hard to break or do you really think you look cool with your cigarette?

  18. I don’t think anyone can deny she’s a true and talented artist. I think she was very original in her ways, a fashion icon and amazing musician and I’m pretty sure she inspiried a lot of people. Commercial? Joplin, Cobain..they were all commercial (and did drugs and booze) and they are, and always will be, legends.
    She’s an music icon, then, now and forever.

  19. how come everytime somebody famous dies, their seen as some kind of heros in their area of talent, she was a junkie, who obviously didnt care about her health, she did the drugs because she wanted too, and she died, but musical genius? not a chance, her name doesnt even belong in the same sentence as Jim Morrison or Jimmi Hendrix!,

  21. Tragic indeed. But I have to agree with DaftAida and DaTruth on this one. To put her in the ranks with Brian Jones, Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison, Janis Joplin and Kurt Cobain……is sheer nonsense. First of all, she was never, and will never be a “musical icon”, it was more pop than substance, more commercial than original.

    •  I’d disagree, she had a lot of talent, and put out two great albums plus some good unreleased material that only came out after her death. I said the same thing ’til I decided to at least give it a listen, and then I accidentally fell in love with her music. Give it a chance man, she’s good.

    • Absolutely. This girl had one good album. It came out an was successful, we were ready for that sound. Then….nothing. That was it, that’s all the ”greatness’ we got from her. All these people calling her a ”genius” and ”icon” didn’t even care about her a month ago unless she was on the news doing something crazy or getting booed off stage for being to messed up. And this is the person you really want to call the ”greatest talent of our generation”? It’s only cause she’s dead now that you remember she had an ok 1st album at all. And now everyone wants to idolize her. I’m sad that she got into drugs, and I’m sad that a human life is gone, but she chose this death years ago and I don’t think she should be put on a pedestal for it.

      • Oops! Sorry, put actually twice. Not trying to be arrogant there!

        Good day to you x

      • Actually if you are talking about Back to Black that is actually her 2nd album. Frank was her first back in 2003 and she won many accolades for it including an Ivor Novello award (3x winner) for her songwriting. It also went triple platinum in 2008. As a vocalist myself, I actually preferred this release as I found it to be more versatile in it’s style. I loved the UK soul/acid jazz scene of the 90’s. Soul 2 Soul, Artists from Talking Loud records, etc. We now have American wannabe, sickly smooth, autotuned RnB crap. I like the fact she gave us something that set us apart once more. It’s a real shame people will remember her for the declining years after Back to Black. She was a talented woman who sadly got caught up in her addictions. However, I do agree that she shouldn’t be compared to Hendrix, etc. Comparisons are just a pointless excercise. Different people from different times with a different relevance. As I recall, many of these fallen icons of the past had their own demons too. Whilst I also feel that she shouldn’t be put on a pedestal, she should be apprecitated for her musical contribution.

  22. she is so hot

  23. Sorry, guys but if this is artistic brilliance then I’m a hedgehog.

  24. Amy was done in. First via drugs, booze and media. As she was given high praise by the thug Tony Bennett just hours before she copped it, made me wonder what he knew. Anyway, they built her or him up to take him or her down and make a fat load of money out of the deal as usual.

  27. Glad she is dead? Wow…people have problems. Human beings are not perfect….not one of them. People go thru stuff and unless u have been with that person going thru the exact same thing u shouldnt judge. Smh lets just hope u never mess up or make an mistake, because , karma is something else.

  33. The positive conversation and support for Amy and her obvious talent will not atone for the media’s need to keep her demons on the front page of their bullshit. YouTube is riddled with videos of her deeply personal struggle as she tried to navigate through to the hearts of her fans. Her issues were visible and relentless unlike the abusive-glutonous-greedy-sex crazed-drama queens printing the stories about her. If that camera was pointing back at the ones pouring acid on her image or printing in detail what goes on behinds their closed doors maybe the media wouldn’t be so smug. When will we realize we have contributed to her pain?
    When will we admit we would slit our wrists if our dirty laundry was up for inspection?
    Alive she was a drugged alcoholic and dead she is a british musical icon…

    • Yeah, let’s absolve her of any responsibility… we MADE her take those drugs and we MADE her pour liquor down her throat, right? But what about the people that are not in the public eye, and still drink and drug themselves to death?… ah, let’s blame us for that too.

      • “Yeah, let’s absolve her of any responsibility”

        Who are you, Amy Winehouse’s judge? Seriously why do you feel the need to stand in judgment of a person you never knew and never caused harm to anyone but herself?

  39. While it is a tragedy for anyone to die so young let’s not go overboard she certainly isn’t the “most talented singer/songwriter from the UK in 30 years”. She was a great singer with a handful of good songs. I would hardly call her a Genius either, she may have well matured into such an artist but the realy tragedy is we will now never know.
