Gnarls Barkley covers Radiohead's "Reckoner" (live)

There's a bunch of different performances of it on youtube, I just picked the one that sounded best to me.

It's actually pretty good. No falsetto, a bit more in-your-face, but not that much. This probably sounds like a cliche thing to say, but they made it their own, I think.

YouTube - Gnarls Barkley - Reckoner (Live Radiohead Cover)

I remember Laz posted this in the Radiohead thread a while ago... or was it the Random Music thread?

Regardless, good cover

Pretty cool. Watching it just makes me think of how awesome RH's original is, though. God I love this song.

Random music thread I think, during the summer.

I'm still ticked they never released it officially as a b-side, it sounds absolutely perfect. Gnarls should just do a Radiohead cover album or something. Go back and listen to the original after the cover and you'll think Thom can't sing with crap.

Agreed. It's been my favorite since the album first came out. The first minute of the song is pure perfection.

the drums + the guitar + the falsetto =

I'm tellin ya there's somethin about the drums on the studio version of this song. I don't know how they captured that sound but they did and I'm damn glad they did.

Things like this are perfect proof of why the "Random music thread" can be bad sometimes. Things that regularly would have received a number of comments or views had they been in a thread specific to that artist get passed over.

I don't know if I've ever been in the Random Music thread, for the same reason I don't know if I've ever been in the Random Movie thread. Too random.

I found this clip the other day on youtube and was quite pleased with what I found. I love their cover of "Reckoner".

Gnarls Barkley is a "they", not a "he".
