Depression? Dark Humor? Death Wish?

If you were/are nearly 70 and someone sent you a link to this video, how would you interpret it?

Hard to say. I just clicked the link and watched part of the video. To be honest, I think this is the first time I've ever heard Amy Winehouse's voice. Which puts me pretty far behind her pop culture curve. (I don't know what I expected her voice to sound like, but I don't think I was expecting this.)

Are you suggesting that the tone of this video was perhaps a deliberate choice on her part as a foreshadow to her own death? Could be. Or could just be dark humor. Or depression, as you mentioned, or any number of other things.

Assuming that you, like me, have pretty much zero interest in people like Amy Winehouse, I'd almost be more curious as to who thought it a was good idea to share this video with you.

Most young people like Amy think they'll live forever, so doing a video about a funeral and burial was nothing for her to lose sleep over. Old coots like me, on the other hand, are much more attuned to the subject.
