Just try to make it through the new video from the late and lovely Amy Winehouse without getting all misty-eyed — we know we sure can’t. The first single off her posthumous Lioness: Hidden Treasures album, “Our Day Will Come” is a sweet and breezy, reggae-kissed track that blends beautifully with the video’s heartstrings-tugging montage of archival footage and still photos. We get to see Amy strutting around town, getting goofy behind the scenes, painting on her trademark over-the-top eye makeup, touching up that wild beehive and, most important, working her original Winehouse magic onstage. Perfectly capturing her ragged glamour, vulnerability and old-soul vibe all at once, the video more than cements Amy’s status as one of the greatest gifts to the music world in recent history.
“Our Day Will Come” is a cover of the 1963 doo-wop hit from Ruby & The Romantics, and with Amy sounding so triumphant on lines like “No one can tell me that I am too young,” it’s damn near heartbreaking.
