Song information

„Creep” is a rock ballad released as the first single of the British band Radiohead, which was later included in the band's first album: "Pablo Honey". The song became an international hit. The band noted that many fans attended the concert because of this song. Lead singer, Thom Yorke wrote the song in the 80s, while studying at the University of Exeter. The band's guitarist, Jonny Greenwood said that the inspiration for Yorke was a girl whom he saw on one of the bands concerts. In 1992, during one of the sessions with band’s producers, artists spontaneously played "Creep". Producers, however, mistakenly read out the intentions of the band, considering it o be a cover. Later, as a result of stress during unsuccessful attempts at recording other songs, the producers asked for a re-performance of the song. The musicians recorded the song on the fist take. After explaining that "Creep" was an original work of Radiohead, one of the producers announced a new single. Although the artists were not altogether satisfied with the sound of the song, the producers decided to release it.
