Ronson Don't Need No Stinking Winehouse

Here's the video for Mark Ronson's "Valerie" (which is really The Zuton's "Valerie," but we're not hear to get into the nitty-gritty).

If you'll recall, on the album, Amy Winehouse does the vocals, but since she's busy snorting things and stabbing people, he used a bunch fo stand-ins. It's kind of an iffy concept, but he pulls it off with the usual Ronson style - walking that fine line between charming kitsch and cloying insincerity and coming out (adorably) on top.

It also does a good job capturing the spirit of his amazing live Version show.

I was bummed to hear as part of his "house band" gig at the god awful VMAs on Sunday that he was going to do a version of "D.A.N.C.E." with Justice. Oh baby oh baby that would've been sweet.
