Lana Del Rey confirmed on twitter that she is in fact being sued by Radiohead. She said on twitter
“Although I know my song wasn’t inspired by Creep, Radiohead feel it was and want 100% of the publishing – I offered up to 40 over the last few months but they will only accept 100. Their lawyers have been relentless, so we will deal with it in court”
Huh, they want 100%? That’s interesting given they don’t even have sole writering credits on the song… some of the credit going to The Hollies!
Here is the melody in question, in chronological order: First The Hollies
And most recently… Lana Del Rey
I guess we’ll see how things play out in court! She might be in trouble – it is reeeeeeal similar!
