Confession time: I have, since her first album came out, enjoyed Nelly Furtado’s music. It has a nice folk-y pop feeling, she had nice vocal range…I had no complaints. *Folklore* was also quite enjoyable, save a couple of tracks. I didn’t pursue her albums, but I didn’t mind if stuff came on the radio.
But when I recently heard her new single, *Promiscuous*, I had only one thought: *who on earth told her it was a good idea to dump everything she had and do an impersonation of the worst of the Black Eyed Peas?*
One of the great things about the music industry is that the right cover can heal all wounds. To give the most classic example from last year, [Ted Leo’s cover of Since U Been Gone](http://a.wholelottanothing.org/2005/03/this_weeks_best.html) made the original song considerably more tolerable for me.
So with that said, [via brooklynvegan](http://www.brooklynvegan.com/archives/2006/06/gnarls_barkley_5.html): [Nelly Furtado covering Gnarls Barkley’s “Crazy”](http://this.bigstereo.net/2006/05/31/nelly-furtado-gnarls-barkley/).
The wounds are healed – at least for now.
(If Nelly’s not your style, it’s also been covered by [Ray Lamontagne](http://www.ezarchive.com/moteldemoka/AlbumSpace/26HBX6IZH4/ray+lamontagne+-+crazy.mp3) and [The Kooks](http://www.ezarchive.com/moteldemoka/AlbumSpace/26HBX6IZH4/The_Kooks_-_Crazy.mp3).)
