It’s been almost two years since Amy Winehouse‘s death, which I guess means the statue of limitations on looking back and covering her songs has finally been lifted. Just a few days after plans for Amy’s documentary were announced, here’s the cover of “Back to Black” that Beyoncé and André 3000 did for The Great Gatsby (opening May 10th). Apparently, not everyone is up on it, but let’s be honest: “Back to Black” was an amazing song, and no one can do it like Amy, but at least this song is interesting and atmospheric. Although we really could have lived without the shameless plugs for East Village Radio. NO ONE CARES WHAT THE GUITAR SOUNDS LIKE.
