i slipped on a lil white lie.

radiohead will always hold a very special place in my heart and no matter what, with the more music i listen to, its great to enjoy and stumble back to what ive already known. over the years, ive listened to terrible, interesting and meaningful radiohead covers. when one is performed, its important to me when artists have strength to forget and give into someone else's vision, show their own feeling, are open-minded and most importantly, are respectful of others creativity. theres something about the way music and melodies feel so familiar and far away at the same time that its easy to try to analyze and put into words about how much they never live up to the originals... but it sure is nice to listen, when they take on their own distinct characteristics and bring you to a completely different place overall.


these versions are special secrets.


these versions are recent favorites.


these versions kind of freak me out.

Tori Amos has performed her version of Karma Police some time ago. Do you know it? I liked it.

Nice work. Thanks for this.

You wouldn't happen to have Hanson's cover of Optimistic would you? I know, I know.. Hanson? Really?

I'm just curious. ;)
