Music Birthday: Amy Winehouse

Today, September 14, 1983, Amy Jade Winehouse was born in London, England. Amy covered the song by The Zutons, called ‘Valerie,’ and it’s included on her “Back to Black: B-Sides” bonus album.

The song is 1 of 6 productions on “Back to Black” by Mark Ronson, others include ‘Rehab,’ ‘Back to Black, ‘You Know I’m No Good, and ‘Love is a Losing Game.’ The remainder of the album was produced by Salaam Remi.

‘Valerie’ peaked at no. 2 on the US Billboard Euro Digital Tracks Chart. 

On the history tip, ‘Valerie’ was originally recorded by English rock band, The Zutons, and it’s since been re imagined by many more than the late Amy Winehouse. The Brothers Comatose, Jessica Manning, The Nolans, ortoPilot, and The Mighty Diamonds have all covered the indie classic.
