Valerie (3:55)

Cover of Tired Of Hanging Around

From Tired Of Hanging Around and 54 other releases

“Valerie” is a song by the English indie rock band The Zutons off the band’s second studio album, Tired of Hanging Around (2006). Released as the album’s second single on 19 June 2006 in the United Kingdom, along with their previous single “Why Won’t You Give Me Your Love?”, it gave The Zutons their joint-biggest single to date as well as their second UK Top 10 single, climbing from Number 41 (via download sales alone the day before physical release) to its peak at Number 9 in the UK Singles Chart. The music video was directed by Scott Lyon.

The song was used by ITV during their coverage of the 2006 FIFA World Cup, alongside Kasabian’s cover of David Bowie’s 1977 song “Heroes” and Primal Scream’s 2006 song “Country Girl”.

Well, sometimes I go out by myself
And I look across the water
And I think of all the things, what you do
And in my head, I make a picture

    All I've heard in the past seven years is the overplayed-to-death Winehouse version. Hearing this the other day was an absolute blast of fresh air for this song. it's sad that the Zutons' original is so overlooked!
