On New Year's Eve of 2006, two British superstars appeared together on 'Hootenanny', a show hosted by Jools Holland, a television host since the mid-1980s of various programs, including 'Later...With Jools Holland'. He began his career as a musician, and is perhaps best known as a founding member of the band Squeeze. But on that holiday evening, singer Amy Winehouse sang with Paul Weller, an iconic name in British music, who had penned and recorded many hits before Ms. Winehouse was born. Weller was a founding member of The Jam in the mid-1970s, and later founded The Style Council, another popular British group formed in 1983, the year of Amy's birth. On 'Hootenanny', the performed "I Heard It Through The Grapevine", a song written by Norman Whitfield and Barrett Strong for Motown Records in 1966. The song was made famous by the great Marvin Gaye in 1968. This is Amy Winehouse and Paul Weller with "I Heard It Through The Grapevine".

Have a great weekend!
