All Good Things by Nelly Furtado
"All Good Things (Come to an End)" is a pop song written by singer Nelly Furtado, Timbaland, Danja and Chris Martin for Furtado's third album, Loose (2006). It was co-produced by Timbaland and Danja and released as the album's third European single in November 2006 (see 2006 in music). It was released as the fourth single in the United States and Australia. The single featured Chris Martin, frontman of the band Coldplay, harmonizing throughout the song. The original version had him say a few words at the beginning, and sing the chorus behind Furtado. "All Good Things (Come to an End)" was praised for having diversity in comparison to other songs on Loose, but at the same time, criticized for its mellowness. The song reached number-one in more than fifteen countries including Austria, Czech Republic, Denmark and Netherlands. Show video tutorial!
