Tony Bennett and Amy Winehouse recorded their duet Body and Soul in London’s Abbey Road studios made famous by the Beatles. Tony and Amy recorded the song Body and Soul in March 2011, four months before Amy’s untimely death at the age of 27.

The original song Body and Soul was a favourite of legends Billie Holiday and Frank Sinatra. Frank Sinatra was one of Amy’s idols. 85 year old New Yorker Tony Bennett was the last person to work with Amy Winehouse.

Appearing on the Daily Show Tony Bennett was quoted as saying…

“She was in trouble at that time because she had a couple of engagements that she didn’t keep up,” the 85-year – old singer said. “But what people didn’t realize at that time was she really knew – in fact, I didn’t know when we were making the record, now looking at the whole thing – she knew she was in a lot of trouble, that she wasn’t going to live. And it wasn’t drugs. It was alcohol towards the end.”

Tony Bennett also spoke about Amy’s singing talent – she was the only singer that sang what I call ‘the right way’,” and she was also a great jazz-pop singer.

These are the Body And Soul song lyrics

My heart is sad and lonely
For you I sigh, for you dear only
Why haven’t you seen it
I’m all for you

Body and soul

I spend my days and longing
And wondering why it’s me that you’re wronging
I’ll tell ya, I mean it
I’m all for you

Body and soul

I can’t believe it, it’s hard to conceive it
That you’d turn away romance… oh oh oh
Are you pretending, it looks like the ending
Unless, I could have one more chance to prove… dear

My life a wreck, you’re making
You know, I’m yours for just the taking
I’d gladly surrender myself to you

Body and soul

Are you pretending, it looks like the ending
Unless, I could have one more chance to prove… dear

My life a wreck, you’re making
You know I’m yours for just the taking
I’d gladly surrender myself to you

Body and soul
