Today I had not one but two Radiohead covers to choose from. It wasn’t until just now that I realized that Gillian Welch’s “Black Star” was performed live, which would typically make me look for something else, but it was one of the best covers of the 2000’s, at least according to Paste magazine, so I’m sticking with it. That said, my other Radiohead cover option here, the Threeds cover of “Paranoid Android” is pretty fantastic too. I mean really, have you ever heard a bad Radiohead cover by an oboe trio? Of course you haven’t!
