Amy Winehouse Covers "Our Day Will Come"
Posted by Newson 11/09/2011 at 12:54 PM
One of the things that could never be faulted about Amy Winehouse—she had absolutely impeccable taste in cover choices. There’ll be a bunch of those to come on Lioness: Hidden Treasures, her posthumously released collection of new tracks and unreleased oldies, including “The Girl From Impanema” and “Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow?,” but first on the block of leaked tracks is “Our Day Will Come,” originally a #1 hit for R&B group Ruby and the Romantics back in 1963. Unsurprisingly, Amy reggaes it out, much like she did with Sam Cooke’s “Cupid” some years back, giving it a nice little soulful bounce to go with her pitch-perfect vocal, and some lovely backing vocals and flutes, replacing the swirling organs of the original.
It’s a very fine cover of a very underrated ’60s hit, and if all Lioness is on par, the relative lack of new originals shouldn’t be that hard to look past. Take a little compare/contrast with Amy’s version and the original Ruby gem.
