1. Thom York’s debut solo album in nothing short of genius. Released in 2006, this album is Yorke’s side project from Radiohead. The album consists of nine electronic tracks and is heavily sample based.

    The title track was later covered by jazz trumpet player Christian Scott on his 2010 album ‘Yesterday You Said Tomorrow’.

  2. This is an amazing tune that uses samples from the already awesome Radiohead song “Paranoid Android” and and mixes them into Jay-Z’s “Dirt Off Your Shoulder”. Produced by Max Tannone. There are heaps of these available for free download from his website as instrumentals or with vocals. Other notably well crafted mashups are “No Karma” and “99 Anthems”.

  3. Three versions of a song and the inspiration. Exit Music (For A Film) was written by Radiohead and is featured on their highly acclaimed third album OK Computer.

The Jazz pianist, Brad Mehldau’s version shows him taking this popular song to the jazz medium where he explores the originally simple song and stretching and extending it through improvisation.

Next is by the Indie Rock band Vampire Weekend. They recorded this version for an OK Computer tribute album. The Vampire Weekend boys seem to have given this tune a revamp. Giving it more of a danceable beat while still maintaining the eery atmosphere.

And finally, the inspiration for it all. Although Exit Music (For A Film) is an original Radiohead song, it was heavily influenced by the Frederic Chopin  ”Prelude in Eminor(op.28 no. 4)” written between 1835 and 1839.

Exit Music (For A Film) is an amazing piece (the original and the covers).This just goes to show how music can develop and change over time as each artist interprets it as they like, adding their own colours into the mix.
