Drawing on Winehouse's real-life struggles, this cheeky, sonically perfect salvo made the London diva a worldwide star. The huge, Motown-inspired beat featured Brooklyn throwback R&B band the Dap-Kings. "One of the best recordings ever," said Roots drummer Ahmir "?uestlove" Thompson. "She's coming from Fifties and Sixties doo-wop, and they nailed that sound exactly."

Appears on: Back to Black (Universal Republic)
