“But I’m a creep/I’m a weirdo/What the hell am I doin’ here?/I don’t belong here.” Do you ever sing this powerful chorus in the shower? This iconic tune from Radiohead was covered over and over on YouTube, on television and streaming platforms. Thom Yorke, the leader of this legendary English rock band, has released the ‘Creep (Very 2021 Rmx).’ To celebrate the release, here are some versions made by our THP favourite acts.
Before rising to fame with her role of Nini Salazar-Roberts in High School Musical: The Musical: The Series and her multi-platinum selling album Sour, Olivia Rodrigo kicked off her career on the Internet. Back in 2017, she made that beautiful rendition of the classic Radiohead track. We are not over the emotions through her blissful high notes and the delicate piano vibes, just as the pop princess knows to do best!
Glee’s Rachel And Brody (Lea Michele And Dean Geyer)
Who’s feeling the nostalgia here? Glee hasn’t escaped from the ‘Creep’ mania. In episode 17 of season 4, Brody and Rachel opened up about their regrets in life, admitting the end of their relationship. We truly miss that TV show! Let’s relive that jam-packed emotional moment.
We came across this cover at THP when mxmtoon announced her association with the game Life Is Strange: True Colors out on September 10th. This version is an absolute piece of art. It’s easy to fall back in the circles of nostalgia while listening to the Oakland singer. Dreamy and soulful, she made her rendition so magical.
Our new Canadian Pop star darling Charlotte Cardin also jumped on the ‘Creep’ bandwagon. In 2013, when she started the competition at La Voix, she posted some covers of song she cherished for fun! How can we not cry on this acoustic, almost acapella, version? Impossible! We love her romantic tones!
Thom Yorke’s ‘Very 2021 RMX’
It is always clear that music and fashion stick together. For Tokyo Fashion Week, Thom Yorke, the leader of Radiohead and solo artist, reinterpreted his 1993 classic. ‘Creep’ takes another dimension in this extended lo-fi version. The Oxford multi-instrumentalist’s new spin of the track, where the guitars trebles delicately, is delightful. The nine minutes plea is on point with today’s actual social climate. Who will be the next to cover it? The bets are on!
