Postmodern Jukebox’s Creep

In today’s “The cover is better that the original”, we chose Postmodern Jukebox’s Creep feat. Haley Reinhart. The original song is by Radiohead.

Why it’s almost better: The original song is a 90s classic but let’s face it, it has been covered incessantly by anyone who can hold a guitar. It’s refreshing to listen to a version of this song done à la big band and with a female vocalist. Radiohead’s original interpretation is a perfect blend between ballade and rock. But Haley Reinhart’s voice adds a mixture of seduction and craving reminiscent of the great Etta James that the angsty original lacks. Creep cannot be surpassed but Postmodern Jukebox’s cover is a great contender.
