  • Oh…..Good……..Lord……Stop……..Please……!!!…:(

  • Uncomfortable to watch or what?

  • terrible

  • Cool n’ artistic!

  • WHY?

  • The youtube comments for this video scare me.

  • I love Amanda. She’s great.
    But..I don’t know if i like this cover

  • Is that Hitler at the start?

  • oh dear… that was cringe worthy. It would have been better if she’d had some sort of accompaniment but it just sounded dead to me.

  • I hope BOB kills her

  • Not as bad as the others make it sound in their comments… and waaaaayyy better than whatshisname with supergroup trying to perform Bodysnatchers :-)

  • Hardly as bad as the comments above are making out. I thought it was amusing and oddly charming.

  • Wait…

    Was that guy in a dress?

  • I heard this on the howard stern show a few weeks ago, oddly enough, and wondered what her name was… thanks for posting it.

  • throw it in the pile of millions of other creep covers.

  • I didn’t think that was bad, actually. At least give kudos for the vocal sustain on the bridge.

  • ah, this cover is great!!!

  • ah, let’s not be so damning, fellas- I thought it was curiously charming, and I was impressed with her sustaining.

  • I don’t care what some of the others have said, I enjoyed that, a nice take on the song.

  • Haha – why does Hitler in a dress introduce her?

  • I can’t say that I dislike it. (Love the attempts at Jonny’s muted bit)

  • Not too bad.

  • i throught it was pretty good. she has done a few radiohead songs.

  • PAINFUL ! oh not to mention shit

  • liked it!

  • Hey I like it:)

  • i didn’t deserve that. my skin crawled off and hid in a corner. and my ears have started bleeding.

  • definately don’t like it!

  • Wow, and I thought *I* was an overreacting douche… this is just Amanda Palmer trying to be funny, not satan’s vengeance on humanity, take it easy.

  • she really is a creep..
    the singing is ok though

  • c’mon guys. radiohead are the best band in the world. no-one else can EVEN get close to writing good music.

    and to make it worse – no one should ever attempt to cover a RH song because:

    a – no one can sing as well as thom
    b – no one can play bass like colin
    c – no one can riff like johnny
    d – no one can hit cow hide like phil, and
    e – one one can clap their hands, sit on their bum or hold an e-bow like ed.

    Stop showing these youtube clips.

    BTW – If RH chooses to cover another artists’s song, the RH automatically becomes superior to the original in every way!

  • Что касается темы, то мне кажется что ее актаульность будет известна только через некоторое время.

  • [...] Palmer has played some Radiohead covers in the past. On her own (Creep) and with her band Dresden Dolls (Karma Police). But now she has released a full EP with Radiohead [...]

  • This actually answered my drawback, thank you!Expect you would like to observe more information concerning grand home furnishing
