Because they have to put their own spin on it. I guess anything to keep amy's music alive, right? I just hope dummies won't think it's beyonce's song... it's quite an improvement from bow down bitches grosss


Bow Down was awful but 4 had some really good songs, especially the retroish ones (Schoolin' Life, Love On Top, Party) so I think she can pull it off in that respect. Although with much less commercial success so who knows if she'll go down that route again. Yeah, I don't know. I'm not a fan of covers.

He still stands in spite of what his Mars bar says.

Maybe I'm being thick, but surely if Jay-Z/Beyoncé/the film studio wanted to include a cover of Back to Black on a product that will ultimately be for profit they'd need to seek permission from Amy's estate which would probably be managed by her parents? So from the sound of it, either the reports or false or it's still early days and they haven't finished recording it, which means there's a chance it'll still never happen, touch wood.

I can't imagine what kind of travesty this is going to turn out to be. I mean, Beyonce sings the same radio-friendly, bubble-gun machine pop junk. Amy's self-written material tells of her own, private pain and suffering. I can't imagine Beyonce/Andre 3000 doing anything more than turning this haunting torch song into another dance floor piece of fluff.

This is precisely what I'm afraid of. Perfectly stated.


Also, IMO, just about no amount of cash, to the foundation or otherwise, is acceptable in return for what I'm afraid Beyonce and her 238437 writers/producers are going to do with this song.
