Amy Winehouse & Love Is a Losing Game

From Back to Black (2006).

I got started on an Amy Winehouse retrospective yesterday. To be honest, I don’t know much about her music and may have got it totally wrong in my previous assessment, so I’m going to try to take it one song at a time and see what’s going on. As mentioned, the two hurdles for me have been the watchability factor of the visuals, and the tendency (or so I thought) for her songs not to have a melodic center. This video lets me watch Amy (who is very watchable) without cringing, and she’s got this song tight and under control. A prodigious talent.

    She could sing for a James Bond movie.

    Good point. Maybe she WILL sing posthumously for a James Bond movie. Called “Losing Game.” Jeremy Irons plays the Bond villain “Defect,” who is obsessed with Game Theory and wants to force the US and China into a prisoner’s dilemma that will throw the world into chaos. The Bond girl is Emma Watson.
