U2/Radiohead covers

I just downloaded a U2 version of Creep from audiogalaxy and I'm not
sure whether it's really U2 (!) Yeah, I know, what kinda of a U2 fan
am I! It kinda sounds like Bono but I'm not completely sure. Does
anybody know where and when they might have covered that song?

I also downloaded a Radiohead version of SBS and it kinda sound like
Thom but not really (sounds a lot like Edge actually...)
I know that they covered the song at some point, when and where?

Also, kinda OT, but does anyone have some Radiohead boots they'd like
to trade? I only have U2 stuff...

Get your head out of the mud baby...

All our songs are about God or women, and we often get the two mixed up.--Bono

My strongest trait is curiosity, I'm just lifting stones, you know, opening doors. Looking out windows, around corners, up skirts...--Bono

I know for sure that SBS is Edge singing.. I think its from Popmart Sarajevo..that things been circulating forever.. lol.

I dont think U2 covered Creep either.. I know Bono sings bits of it occasionally at concerts but thats about it.

I have some Radiohead boots if you want to do B&P...

That's what I thought, it definitely sounded like Edge's Popmart vesion of SBS.

Creep, on the other hand, is more difficult to identify. It's a full lenght version of the song, the singer kinda sounds like Bono, espcially when he hit the high notes, but at the end when he talk in his normal voice and says "and neither do you" it doesn't sound much like him. Supposedly there are other covers of Creep done by Tears for Fears, STP and the Cure so maybe I'll have to download those to check whether there all the same cover...

U2 has never covered Radiohead, and vise-versa

STP actually had a song called Creep that was completely different "Take time with the wounded hand..."

There are plenty of mp3's with bogus file names floating around. If you have any on your file server, do the file-sharing community a favor and label them correctly.
