This Amy Winehouse song from her first album may be her best IMO.
It has a jazz/blues influence , but it's neither.It's called "soul" but that's not very specific. Both the lyrics and melody of this song are highly original. The chord changes seem to go to the point where the melodic structure could almost fall apart but doesn't.

Here's an interesting take on "millennial" pop music. I've found a few "gems" as covers in this category but he does make a point about most of it.
