Title: Will You Still Love Tomorrow
Artist: Amy Winehouse
Album: Bridget Jones’ Diary II: Edge of Reason
Amy Winehouse might be a wreck now, but back when she could still stand on two legs, she was a talent and a singing sensation to be reckoned with. Her talent shines clearly through in this cover version of the 1980s song by The Shirelles, originally titled Will You Love me Tomorrow. Winehouse’s rendition is soothingly melodious and bittersweet, with a sparse background music of guitars, joined by a soft booming percussion, and then completed by a classy trombone. It actually does sound better than the original perky Shirelles version, and sounds as if it was meant to be sung that way. It is not typical Winehouse style, but might be one of her best works.
Other recommendations from Amy Winehouse: Rehab, You Know I’m No Good, Back to Black, Tears Dry on their Own, all from the album Back to Black
Other recommendations from Bridget Jones’ Diary II: Stop by Jamelia, a ballad as classic and romantic as you can get, not typical Jamelia style, perhaps. Generally, Bridget Jones movies have kick-ass sound-tracks, so it is actually worth getting their entire album.
Thanks to Zee for the original recommendation of Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow!
