Creep choral version

    So I was watching Hollyoaks this evening (I know I know!) and they had as background music a really nice choral version of Creep by Radiohead.
    I've looked online and can't seem to find it. Did anyone else hear it or know where I can get it from? It would be perfect for my choir!

    That's just disturbing!
    Angelic teenage girls' voices singing, 'I wish I was special', 'but I'm a creep', 'what the hell am I doing here', 'I don't belong here', 'I don't care if it hurts', 'I want to have control', 'I want a perfect body', 'I
    want a perfect soul'...
    A great arrangement from a musical point-of-view, but I'd be concerned about singing this in a school.

     
  5. Hmm, exactly what I thought silverfern! I happened to see this episode of Hollyoaks (a relapse after kicking the habit a couple of years ago), and the music is used as a backdrop to a plot involving a 'chatroom' serial killer targeting teenage girls...
     
  6. I saw it too, think it's fab! I guess it depends on the maturity of those singing it? I would be tempted to use it!

    haha I should add that I was thinking about my 6th form choir! It really isn't appropriate for KS3
     
  8. Have a look at Scala and the Kolcany Brothers version on You tube (I don't know if the link attached is this one). I have done this song with 11-16 pupils. Change the words that are inappropriate and it is very acceptable. My choir love this and the audience acknowledges this every time at the end of a concert.
    It is only 4 chords, try a unison verse and 3 part chorus.
     
  9. I did it with my year 9-13 girls choir in a great arrangemnt last year. Two or three changed words of course. the girls loved it and sounded great and it went dwon very well with the audience.
