Producer: Alicia Keys
It's hard to best a Motown classic, especially Brenda Holloway's "Every Little Bit Hurts." Alicia Keys doesn't attempt to do so here. Keys' cover molds the song in a way that doesn't seek to better the original, but looks to portray a sense of emotional rawness and honesty. So every time she hits those choir-sized climaxes, a cheer is in order. This is one Unplugged cut that resonates.
