100 Cover Versions #26: CockNBullKid & Clare Maguire cover 'She Said' by Plan B

CockNBullKid recorded several cover versions in a series called Covered Off which still can be found here on her Youtube page.  My favourite of those covers is her acoustic version of She Said by Plan B. The guest vocalist was Clare Maguire. Their version is called He Said and showcased both their wonderful voices so well. 

Come Back and Say It Right

Nelly Furtado has released her newest single Big Hoops (Bigger the Better) this week and it should chart fairly well on next Friday's singles chart here in Ireland and also on Sunday's chart in the UK.

Her 2006 album Loose is still one of the best pop albums of the past decade. While Maneater and Promiscuous were both brilliant my favourite single from that album was Say it Right. It was a worldwide hit and was number one in several countries including the US, France, Hungary, Slovakia and New Zealand.

Here is a great mash up by VJ Brewski of Say It Right mixed with Paul Young's perfect pop song Come Back and Stay. That song got to number 4 in the UK singles chart in 1983 and was also number one in New Zealand and Switzerland.
