"Tears Dry On Their Own" by Amy Winehouse

Amy Winehouse's song Tears Dry on Their Own - the fourth single from her second album Back to Black - features a sample of Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell's classic 1967 Motown hit Ain't No Mountain High Enough (which itself was written by Ashford & Simpson); so subtle is that sample used by producer Salaam Remi that even after learning it was in there I still can't hear it, which makes a nice change from the sort of sampling the likes of P. Diddy practice wherein the listener is hit over the head repeatedly with the same line 200 times in three minutes.

The video was directed by photograstar David LaChapelle.
