Amy Winehouse Covers Lesley Gore’s “It’s My Party”

Fact: Quincy Jone’s iPhone contact list is more interesting than yours. As evidence, Q: Soul Bossa Nostra, a tribute to the Jones, will drop next week.

Featuring all-star collaborations of songs associated with the pop-soul sensei, a notable track is perennial partier Amy Winehouse’s Mark Ronson-produced take on Lesley Gore’s “It’s My Party.” So what if the vocal is a bit late-night, runny-mascara, too-many-Zimas? The track is a perfect cover choice and kind of a charming mess - like Wino herself.
