Creep Covers . . . the "Glee, eat your heart out" version.

Radiohead's "Creep" is becoming the most covered song of the last couple decades, at least in indie-rock circles. This is one of the most interesting:

Scala & Kolacny Brothers

You simply MUST listen to this from the 2:50 – 3:30 marks.

Maybe you caught this song on The Social Network? Here’s a live version where they cut it short, so it’s not quite as powerful:

Scala & Kolacny Brothers

Because you’re just so darn special. You know?

Amanda Palmer (of Dresden Dolls) has a very creepy cover (with her ukulele!?)

Here's the link:

Now I'll shut up about Dresden Dolls (for another month).

The produced version drips with emo-ness.

KP: Yeah, she had an EP of all ukulele Radiohead covers. I downloaded it. "Creep"'s on there TWICE.

Paul: That' a knock off! (Or a cover of a cover?) Hah! I still like the Scala middle-build better, though this chorus uses mostly the same arrangement.

You're right, djm, which is why, for me, this is a bore.
No drama--just drama club--perfect for the film, where all the music is soul-less. Kevin Prufer likes the Dresden Dolls? Ah... it all makes sense.
