Vintage Postmodern Jukebox’s Creep

(un)titledmx

In today’s “The cover is better that the original”, we chose Vintage 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 Vintage Postmodern Jukebox’s cover is a great contender.
