Mark Ronson feat. Amy Winehouse – “Valerie”
When I heard about Amy Winehouse’s death, this was the first tune I thought of. I know her catalogue is filled with amazing songs, and this might seem like an odd favorite, but this song came out at a time in my life when I grabbed hold of it tightly. I remember listening over and over and over. It’s so FUN; it really lifts the spirits. I was somewhat saddened by Winehouse’s death, and for some reason, I haven’t listened to her music since then. Then the other night, “Valerie” came on at the bar and I had a moment…and I’ve been thinking about it ever since.
