Results of last week’s battle: Who did it better? Bobby Bare Jr., or The Ukrainians?

Can a relatively unknown cover unseat a version of a song that’s so popular, many think it’s the original version? We’ll find out on today’s Who Did It Better, as we pit Mark Ronson & Amy Winehouse’s version of the Zutons’ hit “Valerie”, against a slower, funkier version by indie artist ortoPilot. Big thanks to listener Noah B. for the request!

Purchase links (where available):
“Valerie” – The Zutons (the original)
“Valerie” – Mark Ronson feat. Amy Winehouse
“Valerie” – ortoPilot

Why don’t you come on over, and tell me who did it better?
