Description

This is the 1987 Tom Lord-Alge redux.
This page DID have the original 1982 version, but it changed (see the HQ Youtube video for the original).

"Valerie" is a song written by Steve Winwood and Will Jennings and originally recorded by Winwood for his third solo album Talking Back to the Night, in 1982. The song deals with a man reminiscing about a lost love he hopes to find again someday. On its original release, the single reached #51 on the UK Singles Chart and #70 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100.

In 1987, a remix by Tom Lord-Alge was included on Winwood's compilation album Chronicles. The remixed version of "Valerie" was released as a single and climbed to #9 in the US in late December 1987, and also reached #19 in the UK.

Eric Prydz sampled the song in 2004 for a house music track and presented it to Winwood. Winwood was so impressed with what Prydz had done, he re-recorded the vocals to fit the track better. The 2004 remix was released under the title "Call on Me".
