Sam Smith Covered Amy Winehouse’s “Love Is A Losing Game”

Sam Smith credits Amy Winehouse with helping mold him as an artist.

Sam Smith is certainly no stranger to covers, but this one really put his vocal abilities to the test. While serving as a guest on Annie Mac’s BBC Radio 1 program, the “Lay Me Down” singer delivered his powerful take on Amy Winehouse‘s “Love Is A Losing Game.” Driven by a viewing of the recent Amy Winehouse documentary Amy, Sam Smith’s spin on “Love Is A Losing Game” was his way of shining the spotlight on the artist who molded him as both a creator and consumer of music.
