20/06/2018: “Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow” by Amy Winehouse


The Shirelles’ 1960 original is richer and warmer. Dusty Springfield’s 1964 cover is much more lively. But Amy Winehouse, with her unique Jazz singers’ croon, performs this song to a fantastic standard.

Amy Winehouse is a tragic figure considering her untimely death aged 27 in 2011. But I never really appreciated just how talented she was until I listened to productions that were starker than the ubiquitous “Back To Black” or “Valerie”.


Another reason that I came to respect her singing so much is listening to her duets and studio sessions. She really was a very rare talent indeed.

This cover of the classic love song was done in 2004 for the Bridget Jones soundtrack. There’s another version released posthumously in 2011, but I don’t like that as much.

Amy Winehouse sings powerfully and with plenty of soul here, to a sedate backdrop of guitar plucking, brass and clapping drums.

The world is worse off without her for sure.
