Amy Winehouse songs covered by other stars

1) George Michael – Love Is a Losing Game

This performance happened on September 27 in 2011 as George played Barcelona.

One YouTube commenter wrote following George’s own passing: “They are probably making beautiful music together.”

2) Miley Cyrus – Back to Black

Miley paid tribute to Amy with a thrilling rendition of Back to Black during her 2019 Glastonbury set.

She was joined on stage for the performance by Amy’s producer Mark Ronson.

3) Elbow – Back to Black

Backed by strings but without drums or piano, Elbow gave Amy’s iconic tune an emotional makeover.

It was first performed for Radio 1 Live Lounge.

4) Arctic Monkeys – You Know I’m No Good

Arctic Monkeys covered Amy’s iconic song You Know I’m no Good in 2007.

It was another version recorded for Radio 1 Live Lounge.

One YouTube commenter hailed it: “As much as I love the original version, I must say this cover blew my mind!”

5) Jess Glynne – Tears Dry On Their Own

Jess’ singing career only began two years after Amy’s passing.

She has previously praised the late star as a big influence on her work.

6) Girls Aloud – Rehab

Perhaps the biggest departure in tone from Amy’s original version, the pop band’s take bounces around but is still a compelling listen.

Amy Winehouse at Porchester Hall – BBC Sessions airs on BBC Two, tonight (July 23), at 10pm.
