Radiohead – Ceremony (2007)

I’ve always been a sucker for the cover version.

However,  I’ve also believed there are some songs that are too perfect to be covered.

“Ceremony” falls into the latter category – the scratchy original Joy Division recordings tease and the “official” New Order releases sound like the best record ever made. Untouchable.

Radiohead can’t top the original but the video and performance of this are the most heartfelt tribute to any other band I have ever seen. For 4 mins Radiohead wish they were Joy Division and, to their credit, they come close enough ….
