Who is that mangling High and Dry??



I caught the end of the video this morning. Some young man earnestly pounding away at his piano, singing an incredibly off-key version of the beloved Radiohead tune. The girl was running to save some wretch from flinging himself from the top of the building. I'm afraid I understood why he would want to do such a thing after only listening to a few minutes of the song.

That would be Jamie Cullum, and I did not know until recently that that was a Radiohead song .

I like Jamia Cullan. I don't know the exact song he covered. But I know when people do a cover they should try to sound like the original song but also be unique! I think he is a little unique!

Recent classics should NEVER be covered.

For that matter, recent songs should NEVER be covered.

On a related tangent, covers should NEVER be released as singles.

Iron & Wine doing 'Such Great Heights' wasn't such a travesty, you have to admit.

But 'High & Dry' definitely was, urgh. I've never heard any of Christopher O'Riley's stuff, so when I first heard this I was really afraid it was him because I really wanted to like it if it was him! Good thing it wasn't.

I think I'm glad I haven't heard this yet, and will do my best to avoid it.

Unique and original are fine, but off-key singing isn't acceptable!
