Saint Etienne – “Just Friends” (Amy Winehouse Cover)

By Michael Nelson / July 12, 2012

July 23 will mark the one-year anniversary of Amy Winehouse’s passing, and in tribute, Q Magazine will include with their UK print edition a CD featuring artists such as Manic Street Preachers, the Cribs, and Temper Trap covering songs from Winehouse’s breakthrough sophomore release, Back To Black. We’ve got one song from the CD now — Saint Etienne covering “Just Friends.” It’s really lovely. Of course, Saint Etienne could cover “I’m Too Sexy” by Right Said Fred and it’d probably be pretty great. What’s that? They do cover “I’m Too Sexy” by Right Said Fred? Huh. Check out “Just Friends” below.

The Amy Winehouse issue of Q is on stands now.
