This audio only video is Amy performing October Song at T in The Park in 2004.

This song was written in memory of Amy Winehouse’s pet canary, whom she named after movie star Ava Gardner. Amy recalled to Mojo magazine January 2008 how the bird would wake her in the mornings, “twittering away and rocking on her little swing.”

When it died the singer was heartbroken. She buried her beloved bird in some woods in East Finchley near London, singing “Lullaby Of Birdland” as she laid Ava to rest. She added in the same Mojo interview: “I loved that bird. It was a sad time. But I got a good song out of it.”
