Valerie

My favourite song of 2007 was Amy Winehouse's cover of Zuton's song Valerie. I have also put the original so you can see how Amy really brings the song to life. By the way - she's gone blond

Hi Jill-

I noticed that you saved this post as a draft and not an actual post so I went ahead and saved it as a post for you. I'll check out this song in a few. I'm doing admin duties right now...

Great track! It kinda has a MoTown feel to it. I think the styles are coming full circle. It could be something produced in the 60s... Has a lot of feel to her vocal! I can see why you liked it so much! Thanks for posting...

When I first heard this version I kinda dismissed it because it was so soon after the Zutons release.
Amy has a great voice but I tend to avoid her stuff because I hate all the media hype that she gets.I was the same with Oasis as well.It's probably my loss and I'm sure I will spend more time with her material later.Talent will last after the hype has gone and she has plenty of it.

I gotta be honest with ya. If it were not for Jill focusing attention on this girl, I would never have known much about her. I don't often go out and look for nws of up and comming artists. I'm usually just too busy with my own F-Jam agenda. So it's a good thing for people like myself that you as members showcase interesting artists like this. It increases my own realm of conciousness, and makes it where I don't have to pay that much attention, because you guys are doing it for me. I really like the community we have going for just that type of reason. I'm getting exposure through you all (and enjoying it).

Lets hope she has the strength to get through it all. Her parents say that she was too young when fame descended upon her. Like Nic although classified as adult she was still a child at heart. She must get so fed up with photographers pursuing her every move even when she goes to the shops to buy a snack. Her pic is in the free London papers every day. She certainly seems to be going downhill since they put her hubby in jail.
Same with poor Brtiney, she was such a lovely girl when she started out.
