    Creep

    I don't normally watch those singing/performing reality-contest shows. But...I was flipping through channels tonight and landed on The Sing-Off and caught the group from Nashville, Street Corner Symphony, doind Radiohead's Creep acappela(sp?) It was awesome.

    Check it out.

    Re: Creep

    The song is what's awesome. One of the best ever.

    Radiohead's version kills this one too although I still enjoyed this.

    Re: Creep

    What is so cool about this is it's all voices. I agree, it's the song that's great and I love Radiohead. It got me to stop on that show, and honestly there were some pretty cool performances.

    Re: Creep

    I think the guy was Lukas Rossi on Rock Star and he did this song. The emotion was incredible. It's probably my favorite version. I'm not much for acappela.

    As much I don't want to like this show, I do. The singers are truly talented and make even some pretty crappy songs sound pretty good.

    Re: Creep

    I think the Pretender's cover of Creep surpasses even Radiohead's original.

    Re: Creep

    I just watched this show tonight for the first time. Wish I would have discovered it earlier. These guys got my vote. Their rendition of CCR's Down on the Corner was better than the original.

    Re: Creep

    I've watched both seasons although we're still catching up on this season. Haven't watched either episode from this week yet. It really is a good show and the groups are better this season than last.

    I don't really like most covers, especially when they completely change the tempo and style of the song (see Chris Cornell - Billie Jean and Everclear - Brown Eyed Girl). This one isn't too bad though. Just as long as they don't mess with the songs from OK Computer.

    Re: Creep

    This show is so awesome, but too many people don't want to watch it, cause it's not "manly" enough. Seriously, these are awesome individuals. I especially like Street Corner Symphony, and tonight there "Down on the Corner" was GREAT

    Re: Creep

    Impressive that they were able to do it acapella but it does lose something as well without that guitar distortion.

    Re: Creep

    wow, that was really impressive. this show is full of very talented singers, but i agree that the song selection seems to be more liberal & creative on this show vs. American Idol & You think you've got talent?....

    radiohead is a great choice though.....they're kind of like U2 to me, but much more alternative and creative w/ their instruments/vocals.

    good post.

    I avoided this show like the plague for the longest time... and then got caught up in it earlier this week. I really enjoy Committed - they are so smooth.
