The musically-driven Fox show Glee has built its reputation on doing big, flashy cover versions of a wide range of popular songs. From dedicating an entire episode to Britney Spears to classic show tunes to My Chemical Romance, the show has shown no fear in tackling music of any genre or time period.
On last night’s (March 21) episode, Glee took on hallowed ground in the alternative rock world by covering “Creep,” Radiohead’s breakout 1992 debut single. Still a staple on rock radio and covered by a slew of artists, “Creep” is a song the band notoriously shies away from now, rarely performing it in concert.
The show’s version featured characters Brody (Dean Geyer) and Rachel (Lea Michele) singing the song as a duet, and stays mostly faithful to the original Radiohead arrangement. Believe it or not, the song was used as part of a “guilty pleasures” episode, with Broadway baby Rachel somehow believing one of the most critically-acclaimed bands in the world is a guilty pleasure. To give it a little perspective, some of the other guilty musical pleasures highlighted on the episode included Phil Collins and ABBA.
