    I think that Lana's song is a total rip off and I hate to say that because I like her.
    Cool song and great voices!

    As the youngest, I inherited a lot of vinyl albums. Probably was the only 5 year old with Michael Jackson's Off the Wall and the Beach Boy's Pet Sounds always playing. I sadly admit that I'd put my budgerigar (parakeet in the states) Blue Bell on the darn record and spin around. Poor chap.

    I don't know, I think if you have to adjust one song or the other to hear the similarities, then maybe they're not so similar; the Lana Del Rey/Radiohead one is much more obvious...

    Not only is it obvious but Lana Del Rey's is an excruciating version. I listened to half of it with all that echo and growling.

    'creep' might be radiohead's most mainstream hit but it's not their best song, by far. and pablo honey is nowhere near being their best album.

    I love the KD Lang cover of this song:



    I like Radiohead and Lana Del Rey. Her song sounds very similar to Creep, but it doesn't bother me. Besides, the chorus is completely different. There's a finite number of notes and their arrangement in the universe. Overlap is going to happen.

    I'm having a hard time hearing Creep in The Air That I Breathe.

    My husband was playing the Lana del Ray song the other day and I immediately starting singing Creep. That's when he told me about the lawsuit. So yeah, the theft is obvious.

    But Lana DelDouche's song is a blatant copy.

    And Blurred Lines sounds nothing like Got To Give It Up by Marvin Gaye, nor do the ABC Song and Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star resemble each other...

    I heard about the lawsuit before hearing Lana's song, and was surprised by how similar they are; Radiohead definitely deserves a writing credit and royalties. I don't understand asking for 100% percent, though. Do lyrics count for nothing?

    Her voice is so annoying. It might be the overplumped lips but she sounds like she can barely open her mouth to pronounce things properly.
