Valerie (Amy Winehouse/The Zutons)
Not everyone knows that one of Amy's most famous songs (produced by Mark Ronson) is a cover. The song was originally composed and performed by the English band Zutons. The song was dedicated to Valerie Star, a make-up artist for the stars based in New York.
Mark Ronson produced the 2007 cover with Winehouse on vocals, and it climbed to number two in the UK charts, well ahead of the original.
Be that as it may, I have always associated this song with the wonderful and unique Amy Winehouse.
This is also a song that I love to sing and I couldn't wait to learn it and I would like to thank my piano teacher Fabio Gianni for arranging it so that I could play and sing it together.
