Recently I’ve been doing a lot of research on copyright laws as they apply to covers on YouTube. While I have found a few tentative lists of artists whose music can be covered on YouTube without negative repercussions, Radiohead is not among them, though two Radiohead members are… :[
Anyways, I first heard this song covered on acoustic guitar in a restaurant that no longer exists, on a wonderful night full of delicious food, family, friends, and live music. I was immediately enamored with it, as it so accurately describes how little right people feel they have to their own romantic feelings, especially if these feelings are not reciprocated, and the pedestals the objects of these feelings get placed upon.
Also, this lovely cover by Scala & Kolacny Brothers, which I first heard in a trailer for “The Social Network” and got irrationally excited about.
