Amy Winehouse Slowed Down Becomes Male Soul Singer

It's pretty amazing what you find when you manipulate a song's speed, and this instance featuring Winehouse perfectly displays her vocal talents, if nothing else. It's not often you can slow down or speed up someone's vocals and produce a pretty decent clone of a talented male soul singer, yet Winehouse has just the chops to pull it off.
Enjoy the slowed down version of "Valerie" -- thanks to Soundcloud user Pooh_Bear -- after the jump.
Pooh_Bear has slowed down some other songs, but I might point your attention to his sped up version of Otis Redding's "(Sittin' On) The Dock of the Bay." There's a hint of some Amy Winehouse in there, too. Who know either speeding up or slowing down songs by Otis Redding and Amy Winehouse would make either artist sound a lot like each other?
Someone also slowed down Justin's Bieber's "U Smile" by 800% this past August, and has its own weird, Sigur Rós effect to it.
None of these, unfortunately, hold a candle to the slowed down version of the Olsen Twins' "Gimme Pizza." It's impossible to be that creepy/vividly entertaining at the same time.
