Rare Radiohead Muxtape, Part III

Either the boys in Radiohead are some prolific mofos or I'm insane. Without really even trying, my iTunes has accumulated no less than 522 songs that answer to the search term of "Radiohead." But here's the deal: 187 of those songs are from the bootleg Towering Above the Rest rarities collection, and I've probably only listened to 60% of those songs ever.

Still, I'm not proud of these 522 songs. If anything, they make me wonder about my mental health. But I'm a helpless spontaneous downloader, troller of music blogs and categorizing master, so there you have it. It's not my fault. In any case, here are some of my favorite songs that get a Radiohead tag even though they aren't *technically* Radiohead. Read the list and you'll see what I mean.

01.) Beach Boys vs. Radiohead - You Still Believe In Me and I Might Be Wrong (mash-up) 02.) Beck - I'm Set Free (Velvet Underground cover with Thom Yorke) 03.) Bjork - I've Seen It All (with Thom Yorke) 04.) Flaming Lips - Knives Out (Radiohead cover) 05.) PJ Harvey - This Mess We're In (with Thom Yorke) 06.) R.E.M. - E-Bow the Letter (with Thom Yorke) 07.) Radiohead vs. Chris Issak - Exit Music and Wicked Game (mash-up) 08.) Rockabye Baby - No Surprises (lullaby rendition) 09.) Sparklehorse - Wish You Were Here (Pink Floyd cover with Thom Yorke) 10.) String Quartet Tribute - Subterranean Homesick Alien 11.) The Cure - Creep (Radiohead cover)
