Radiohead is Suing Lana Del Rey for “Creep” Soundalike

Long time readers and listeners of this site might not be too surprised about this current lawsuit and soundalike. Back in 2009 I posted about the similarities of Radiohead’s 1992 hit “Creep” and The Hollies “The Air That I Breathe” (1974). Since then some readers have suggested some new ones. And today it has come to my attention that Radiohead is suing Lana Del Rey for her song “Get Free” (2017).  It’s definitely pretty similar. But what about all of these other songs before??? Have a listen to to all of them!


The Hollies - "The Air That I Breathe" (1974)
Radiohead - "Creep" (1992)
Raemonn - "Only When You Sleep" (2001)

Christophe – “Aline” (1965)

Brandi Carlile – “Follow” (2005)




UPDATE: Jason Mraz vs. Jonas Brothers vs. Lenka

This is an update to Jason Mraz vs. Jonas Brothers

Jonas Brothers vs. Jason Mraz vs. Lenka on

I just heard Lenka‘s “The Show” on a Crate & Barrel commercial and noticed the similarity of the Jason Mraz and Jonas Brothers tracks I had up here. Check ’em out! I admit that the melodies are not spot on but worth a listen.

Jason Mraz - "I'm Yours" (April 15 2008)

Lenka - "The Show" (September 6 2008)

Jonas Brothers - "Introducing Me" (2010)

UPDATE: Tony! Toni! Toné! vs. Karmin vs. Nirvana

For some reason artists have decided to latch on to the pre-chorus of Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit” (1991). Let’s add YouTube sensation Karmin to the list with there aptly titled track “Hello” (2012). The song’s wikipedia page says

“Hello” interpolates “Smells Like Teen Spirit” by Nirvana.

I am not entirely sure what that means. Linear notes anyone? Once again using state of the art computer technology I am able to come up with these 4 simulated reactions from Kurt Cobain if he was with us today.

Kurt Cobain simulated reactions to hearing "Let's Get Down" by Tony! Toni! Toné! and Karmin "Hello"

Nirvana - "Smells Like Teen Spirit" (1991)

Tony! Toni! Toné! - "Let's Get Down" (1996)

Karmin - "Hello" (2012)
