Radiohead are suing Lana Del Rey.  They say, her song “Get Free”, sounds like their song from 1993, “Creep”.

Here’s Lana Delray…

And here’s Radiohead…

The thing is, ‘Creep’, was actually a rip-off of “The Air That I Breathe”, which was a hit for The Hollies in 1974…

Here’s The Moon Loungers showing how close the two songs are…

Albert Hammond and Mike Hazlewood, who wrote “The Air That I Breathe”, successfully sued Radiohead for copyright infringement. Now the liner notes of Radiohead’s Pablo Honey credit Hammond and Hazlewood as co-writers of “Creep” and Hammond and Hazlewood split royalties with the band.

As Gareth Icke pointed out on Twitter, Radiohead got sued because “Creep” was a rip off of “The Air That I Breathe”. Now Radiohead are suing Lana Del Rey for ripping off “Creep”.  It’s like suing someone for breaking the window of the house you’re squatting in.

Craic on!

    Had no idea how close Creep is to the Hollies’ tune – spooky! What hypocrites but Lana’s track is even more similar. Find some new chord arrangements, people! ;)
