Mark Ronson – Valerie f. Amy Winehouse

This is one of the best tracks from a very good album. Mark Ronson released Version in 2007, an album made up entirely of soul/R&B-style covers of popular songs – everything ranging from Coldplay to Britney Spears to Kasabian to The Zutons, who this song is originally by. The Zutons’ version is much more a rock song, although it retains a soul influence, but this version is straight Motown. The video starts us off with a short verse from a dread-less Wale (yes, he used to be able to rap) before “Valerie” kicks off. Ronson pulls various girls onstage, none of whom are Amy Winehouse, to sing in her stead. It’s a fun video for a very fun song.
