It's a piece of JUNK!

Warner records has given their side of the story, which is that there's discussion going on about how to credit Radiohead on the song, but no actual lawsuit yet and no "100%" clause.

https://pitchfork.com/news/radiohea...publishers-say/

quote:

As Radiohead’s music publisher, it’s true that we’ve been in discussions since August of last year with Lana Del Rey’s representatives. It’s clear that the verses of “Get Free” use musical elements found in the verses of “Creep” and we’ve requested that this be acknowledged in favour of all writers of “Creep.” To set the record straight, no lawsuit has been issued and Radiohead have not said they “will only accept 100%” of the publishing of “Get Free.”

So maybe she just misunderstood the exact legal nature of what's happening. Or there's been an informal legal threat that is technically not a lawsuit. We'll see.

That's pretty lovely of her if true (though she probably just got her wires crossed and tweeted something stupid).

In a bit of dramatic irony, Radiohead are suing Lana Del Rey because the verse of her song "Get Free" uses a similar chord structure to that of "Creep".

I do see their point, but it's an interesting glass house from which to throw rocks...

Itís closer to ďexactly the sameĒ along with the melody and phrasing.

Yeah that sounds like a loose cover. Same exact chord progression and melody. It even includes the backing vocals of the "social network" version of the song.

Radiohead's statement mentioned that they wanted credit to go to 'all the writers of Creep' so they are clearly acknowledging that it's already a song for which credit is shared.

To be very precise, Radiohead didn't issue that statement. Their publishers did. This whole thing might be happening completely independently of Radiohead, who don't even own the entirety of Creep.

Yeah exactly, right now Radiohead is the one entity whose opinion we really have no idea of in this thing. It's probably getting blown out of proportion, though that in itself could be a marketing move...

I'm starting to think the pre-sale thing is complete bullshit. I refreshed my screen at 900am and then get 502 bad gateway 20x. 2 minutes later when I can get the screen to come up they are already gone. I'll still try for the general tix on sale Friday I guess?

WASTE Pre sale is usually for GA right? Lots of people trying for not a lot of tickets and I'm sure people start f5ing early. No luck here this time hoping they don't sell out all three nights at MSG in five minutes

I am hoping the Toronto general tickets are available come Saturday morning. I feel times a ticking on how long they'll be touring and I'll need to fly in for this since Winnipeg is never going to get em.
