Day 3 of My Week with Amy Winehouse - Valerie

Day Three of my week with Amy Winehouse and today its 'Valerie'.

Technically, this is a Mark Ronson song, but its Amy Winehouse on the vocals that makes it for me. It was released as a single in 2007, and reached number 2 in the UK singles chart. 

The video actually does not feature Amy. Mark Ronson is on stage, with his band, but Amy doesn't show up. The song kicks in and still no Amy, so he pulls a girl from the crowd. She begins to mime to the song. Then another girl is chosen, and another - until eventually there are several of them, all miming. 

Amy's deep voice absolutely suits this up tempo track. This is a jazzy pop number, by the always fantastic Mark Ronson. Somehow though, Amy eclipses Ronson, as this became known as an Amy song, due to her talent. 

Fabulous talent, great vocals - stand out track. Go check it out, let me know what you think of it.
