Irish dance/electronica chanteuse Róisín Murphy took up the BBC's Culture Show's busking challenge in February. Here she is singing her hit "Overpowered" unplugged in the streets of Covent Gardens.

And here's the video for the version you hear every day.

More live and unplugged Róisín Murphy video after the jump.

Heh, I had to check the date when I saw this post since Overpowered came out ages ago (despite the Seamus Haji mix still being on my playlist). Nice to see it getting some recognition.

I'd never heard of her before this. I heard the busking version first and liked it enough to go find the actual single. Now I'm hooked; but I still like the busking version the best. :)
