Covers, B-Sides and Rarities: Amy Winehouse’s "Valerie"

It’s rare to come across a cover that’s so good, it goes beyond the original. Amy Winehouse’s version does just that; her rendition of the Zuton’s ‘Valerie’ restores for what in the original lacks in swing and style. I’d even go as far as to say that maybe the song was made for Amy Winehouse; for the reason that she brought it up a notch, made the song sound a whole lot better, and executed it flawlessly.

Or maybe I’ve always had a soft spot for jazz - I don’t know, you tell me.
