Googling for "lyrics" + "boy" wasn't fruitful

Help me identify a song from a single recorded word.

On the site 'Let them sing it for you' (here), I enjoy the songclip that plays for the word 'boy.' Go to the site and type it in to hear it: a woman's voice, holding out the word, a beat in the background.

Can anyone identify this song?

Alternatively, if there is a list of all the songs from the site somewhere that would also be helpful.

Wow, that was incredibly fast!

Mind if I piggyback while the question's still fresh? What's the song for "makes"?

Makes? Cardigans, 'Erase/Rewind'.

Holy cow, thanks wherever, whatever! I can now maintain my internet-searching-rep among my friends.

Jimmy Somerville's a guy! He does have a really high range, though.

Yeah, I thought the word was being sung by a black American woman. I couldn't have been more wrong.
