The cover story of the June 2007 issue of Speak Up was How Good Is Their English?, a test of the language skills of Italian pop stars. Written by Fergal Kavanagh, this led to regular feature The Song, where Speak Up’s esperto musicale looked at the story behind a song and analysed the lyrics. Many of these have also been published in the Brazilian edition of Speak Up.

The cover story of the November 2018 issue of Speak Up was a double-page look at Freddie Mercury, written by Fergal Kavanagh, to celebrate the release of the bio-pic Bohemian Rhapsody. Fergal also recorded a short youtube video.
