Back On The Shelf



I'm still on a girl group and all things early to mid 60s at the moment. I have put Fuel Injected Dreams back on the book shelf half way up the stairs for another year or so but the sounds are still ringing in my head. Ever since I first heard Amy Winehouse's cover of Phil Spector's first hit has always been the song to accompany the last page of the book for me. There have been other covers of this 1958 classic, notably the version by Dee Dee Sharp and rather incongruous live version by Roger Waters and David Gilmour, seriously!  But this world weary version recorded for The Dermot O'Leary Show on Radio 2 is my absolute favourite and possibly even superior to the original.

Class - you wonder what Amy would have gone on to achieve
