Friday music blogging: Mark Ronson
Two of the best pop albums of the last year are Lily Allen‘s Alright, Still and Amy Winehouse‘s Back to Black. What do they have in common (besides cute, clever female singer-songwriters, that is)? Producer Mark Ronson. The guy’s a mad pop genius.
As it happens, Ronson puts out albums of his own. The latest is called Version, and it’s composed of cover versions of contemporary pop songs. Here, for your listening pleasure, is a cover of the song “Valerie” (originally done by The Zutons on their album Tired of Hanging Around) sung by the aforementioned Amy Winehouse. Enjoy.
