    Amy Winehouse - "Valerie" (The Zutons cover)

    The Zutons' "Valerie" featured horns, guitars, and hand-claps for some warm, accessible indie rock. Amy Winehouse took it into her own world, singing every word like she wrote it and flipping it into one of her signature songs, filled with retro soul and smooth accompaniment. It was recorded in 2007 with the help of Mark Ronson, and it ended up being one of the last critically acclaimed songs Winehouse would ever record.
