The Shirelles – Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow (1960)

Released in 1960; topped the charts in 1961; one of the most perfect pop records of all time!

Subsequently covered by some of the greatest names in popular music – Brenda Lee, Dusty Springfield, Ben E King, Jackie DeShannon, Carole King, Smokey Robinson, Dionne Warwick and the Afghan Whigs ….

Unfortunately, Amy Winehouse also chose to kick the song around; a recording which, if she had lived, would probably have seen her up in front of the beak at the International Criminal Court at The Hague. If you ever wanted clarity as to what Vic Reeves meant by “singing in the club style” then Amy sets out the blueprint.

Two versions, the original single from 1960 then a wonderful live recording from 1964.
