It’s official, Postmodern Jukebox can masterfully cover any song and make it sound like it belongs in a different decade. This time, the band has tackled Radiohead’s ’90s hit “Creep”, turning the song from a weird alt-rock rage-fest into a smooth ballad complete with a horn section and piano.
Funny story… I used to have a Radiohead t-shirt with Creep on the front and “I wish I was special” on the back. One day when I wore it to the grocery store, an older lady came up to me from behind, tapped me on the shoulder and said: “You know, you are special. Don’t let anyone tell you differently.” (See, there are nice people in the world.) At first, I didn’t know what she was talking about… Me, special? Until I got home and took off the t-shirt. 🙂
