Mitch said she recorded a lot of covers, I've tried to remember some of them that might have possibly been recorded and came up with this list. Enough for a full album.

1. Ain't Nobody's Business If I Do (from the Billie tribute concert, snippet on YouTube)
2. Fly Me To The Moon (sang at Mitch's show and the demo Tyler sent)
3. Embraceable (whose song is this? also sang at Mitch's party)
4. I'm On The Outside Looking In (Brazil tour)
5. Boulevard Of Broken Dreams (Brazil tour)
6. I Love You More Than You'll Ever Know (the De La Semaine version sounds as quality as a studio version imo)
7. Don't Look Back In Anger (Oasis interpretation inspired by Carlene Anderson - the version on YouTube is awful quality though)
8. A Song For You (the raw version could be released)
9. Stagger Lee (also in Brazil)
10. That's What Friends Are For (she talked about singing this in a Frank era radio interview)
11. A Message To You Rudy (the Glasto version can't be the only one, can it?)
12. Night & Day (apparently also part of the demo Tyler sent)
13. We're Still Friends (sang in Paris in 2007)
14. I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus (maybe a better quality version, but the available one is amazing either way)

This is all I know of. This would make a fabulous Christmas album me thinks!

I've been thinking a lot about that, too. Mitch said she recorded a lot of covers. I wanna hear them all.

He said he doesn't want to give fans "dross." But nothing Amy made was dross to me.
I would love to her a nice quality version of Boulevard of Broken Dreams.

Oh wow, I would love this! I hate that the only versions of some of those songs are such low quality. It would be amazing to hear a good quality version of her doing "Don't Look Back in Anger". And her version of "Boulevard of Broken Dreams" has become my favorite version, she just killed it!

Ah, I know right. I've tried playing with it in a program once to isolate the noise and clear out her vocals a bit, but failed big time. That's perhaps the one I'd want to hear most.

Me too, because what little you can hear sounds amazing. It's a great song to begin with but I really love how she could make any song, ANY SONG, her own.

I'd like to hear a CV of her covers before I hear anything new from her...

She also sang Nobody Loves You When You're Down and Out, and I just love her covers of teach Me Tonight and Don't Go To Strangers on Jools Holland...

No, not her CV, I'm not recruiting, although I would've employed her in a heart beat!... I meant CD

Ooh, speaking of Tenderly, I do wonder what song Amy and Jools recorded together that was mentioned on the other thread. Her performances with his band are my absolute favourites - especially Teach Me Tonight! Which [MENTION=2686]Mrs. Jones[/MENTION] I did not mention because it was released on Frank's deluxe edition, but I wouldn't mind it being released on each of her CDs from now on :D It's my favourite performance of hers.
Thanks [MENTION=2467]ancre[/MENTION]! Some of these were on fan-made CDs that go around file sharing sites so I forgot to mention them, but would not mind hearing them again on a proper one. Great stuff. Also the one she sang with Remi - I Know Him So Well. Those few moments mucking about on the piano where she laughs at herself being silly, but actually sounds amazing. She was so lovely.

I did not know that! Is it the live version of the deluxe album, or a studio version? *wishes she had the Frank deluxe edition now!

The same version from Jools' show. Forgot another one - I Should Care, what an amazing cover as well.

3. Embraceable (whose song is this? also sang at Mitch's party)


The song is Embraceable You. Frank Sinatra sang it as a cover, which is probably how Amy heard it.

EDIT: I forgot that Billie Holiday also sang it. So she may have learned it from either.
