London, May 23 (IANS) Dave McCable, lead singer of the British indie rock band Zutons, says most people believe that troubled singer Amy Winehouse wrote “Valerie” but it has originally been written by him. Winehouse covered the Zutons 2006 song with Mark Ronson, which turned out to be more popular than the original. McCable says people forget that it was their song originally and no one offers him any big song writing gigs.

He said: “People have asked me to write songs, but no one famous. I think they see it as Amy Winehouse’s song… I don’t mind.”

The Zuton’s latest single “Always right behind you” is coming out May 26.
