6 Beautiful Amy Winehouse Songs You’ve Never Heard

A year ago, Amy Winehouse passed away in a tragic end to a long struggle with addiction and fame. But beneath Amy Winehouse’s career plagued by addiction and crazed by the scrutiny of fame, was a richer, even more soulful songbook that not only displays her genius, but also a deep tenderness. Listen to this sad, wonderful playlist to remember her career that ended too early a year ago today.

1. “Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow? (Acoustic)” - 2007

Originally featured on the soundtrack of Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason, this acoustic track showcases Amy’s hefty, but gentle vocal range. The track was originally written by Carole King and recorded by the Shirelles, but Amy gives it an edge, stripping it down to a bare, vulnerably soulful track.

2. “Hey Little Rich Girl (feat. Zalon & Ade)” - 2008

This track, a re-imagined doo-wop cover of the Specials’ 1980 ska hit, is home to a playful side of Amy that didn’t come out to play enough. Stay tuned for the chorus, where one of her backup singers hits a falsetto note that would put even Marvin Gaye to shame.

3. “Cupid” - 2008

Amy had a major appreciation for the love song. And although her original songs about love were majorly grim, she covered old pop songs like a pro. In this track she takes on Sam Cooke’s “Cupid,” and does a worthy, flirtier job.

4. “Teach Me (Hootenanny)” - 2005

This video captures Amy lighting up one of her first television performances early in her career. Her versatility is astounding: capturing the soul and subtlety of Dinah Washington’s “Teach Me” at the age of 22 is a unique challenge that Amy conquers gracefully.

5. “Someone to Watch Over Me” - 2008

This cover is possibly Amy’s most shocking. George Gershwin’s 1926 standard “Someone to Watch Over Me” has been performed countless times in the jazz community over the past century, but Amy makes it sound brand new.

6. “Our Day Will Come” - 2011

“Our Day Will Come” is a short ballad in which Amy dreams of a simple future with the person she loves: “our day will come, and we’ll have everything.” Although Amy passed away at an early age, she seems to have felt a strong love while still alive. She ends one of her final ballads looking optimistically into the future, singing “our dreams are magic because we’ll always stay in love this way, our day will come.”

7. Bonus: “Valerie” — 2007, Live on “the DL”

Perhaps her greatest cover. RIP Amy.
