This throwback ballad represents the late, great Amy Winehouse at the peak of her powers. Flanked by Mark Ronson's sumptuous Motown-influenced production, her vocals are loaded with heartbroken emotion as she mourns the end of a messy relationship.
What a singer — but also, what a songwriter. Nick Levine. I also love the song structure and phrasing, I can listen to this on loop for hours and still not get bored. From the opening trickle of piano, you know this will be a heartbreaker. When the bluesy soul of her voice meets the aching trombone, it actually hurts in its perfection.
Released in , at a time when soul music was being hijacked by lightweights like Michael Bolton, D'Angelo created a slow revolution with this title track from his breathless, devastating debut album.

Martha and her Vandellas make it look all too easy, with vocals that tip perfectly between sassy and sensual. The backstory to this delightful, sonic smile is a lesson in the machinations of Motown.
But the less-than-perfect vocals makes this a truly joyous burst of romance. Today only a couple of the highly collectible original pressings exist. Everyone knows the late Luther Vandross had the sort of voice that could save marriages, make a baby or win back an ex. My boyfriend brought me back a bunch of records from a trip to Miami, and one was this track on a 7-inch.
It was originally intended for The Supremes but the brothers scored with this slice of pure Motown magic. Brilliant socially conscious piece of Philly soul highlighting industrial action.
Rarely did Sly Stone's great psychedelic project do anything you could exactly classify as straight. But 'Everyday People' is as timeless and classic a soul tune as it's possible to imagine. Geno 8.
