I always hold out the hope that there are still some songs that Amy recorded in live performances or in the studio that we haven't heard yet. There are some songs that I would have loved for her to have covered. Two in particular that are quite different: When Sunny Gets Blue and Free Bird (lynyrd skynyrd). I like Anita O Day's version of "Sunny" but there aren't many good female covers of Free Bird on You Tube (mostly amateur). Alison Krauss and the Union Station are too far from the original. Winnona Judd does a good version but it's not like I think Amy would do it. Juliet Simms is the closest to the way I think Amy would do it, but her voice doesn't have the power or range that Amy had. Just try to imagine Amy's contralto voice as you listen to Juliet.
If you want , please post songs that you would have loved Amy to cover (and just maybe she did but it hasn't turned up yet). I vaguely remember a similar thread last year but it didn't come up on a search. Anyway, there's a lot of new people here.
