Obviously Eric Prydz's song "[Call On Me](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7ou6MoKmxFQ
)" sounds like it samples this, but the truth is slightly more in depth; Prydz's original version did just sample "Valerie", Prydz then sent a tape of it to Steve Winwood to basically seek his blessing for the song. Winwood then offered to rerecord just those vocals for Prydz, and that's what's in "Call On Me".
This guy produced genius while in Traffic. I’m not sure what happened but holy shit this is super lame.
Another example of this is Lionel Ritchie when he was with the Commodores. That shit is brilliant. Everything afterwards, what happened.
Then McCartney. Was already producing nursery rhymes while with the Beatles. Once he went solo, except for his first album, which is brilliant, was just nursery rhymes. No wonder Lennon wanted to get the fuck out.
Apologies if you like this kind of music. More power to you.
> Stephen Lawrence ("Steve") Winwood (born May 12, 1948 in Great Barr, Birmingham, England) is a British singer, songwriter, and musician who, in addition to his solo career, was a member of the bands the The Spencer Davis Group, recording the hit "Gimme Some Lovin'", Traffic, and Blind Faith. Winwood's commercial success waned during the mid and late 70's. He had a major hit with While You See A Chance in 1980. He had a career renaissance beginning in 1986 with the hit album Back in the High Life which produced hits such as Higher Love and The Finer Things.
