I want to make it clear that this is not, officially, one of my “bad cover” songs. I did not do any of the background music; there are too many effects and layers and sound effects involved, which are beyond my current resources, or at least my current skills.
This is, however, one of my favorite songs, so I downloaded a karaoke backing of it (which was pretty good, I must say), and I just did the singing.
Of course, this song is by Radiohead, written by Radiohead’s members, originally for “Romeo and Juliet” and also appeared on “OK Computer.” I own nothing. I owe much. The rest I leave to the poor.
I did an impromptu recording of this song with me playing the guitar and singing, before all the other ones I posted. It wasn’t good enough to share with anyone but the best of friends, however, but it did give me some confidence. So, now, I’ve put together at least a passable version worth posting. I hope you like it.
Of the original song was performed by Radiohead, and was written by: Thom Yorke, Jonny Greenwood, Colin Greenwood, Ed O’Brien and Philip Selway, aka…well. Radiohead (duh!). I do not own the rights and make no money off this. It’s just for fun.
