Ive been thinking about this for a while now..Having been somewhat of a fan of Radiohead and decided to have a go at "Go to Sleep" Its a very interesting song. I was rather intrigued by my CD "The Bends" .Specifically how a younger person knew about "Rag and Bone men"..Still working on it of course but I was wondering if other members have used later music in their performances? Regards..

From Wikipedia.."Go to Sleep" is composed in alternating bars of 4/4 and 6/4 and is from the CD "Hail to the Thief" OOOPS!. I seem to remember a rather nice version of David Bowie;s "Heroes" on a CD by Led Bib..

Brad Mehldau has done a few versions of Radiohead songs, as well as other 'relatively' contemporary songs by Nirvana and others.

Don't be surprised about the Rag and Bone Man references. The young men of Radiohead have been around for quite a well and are in their 50's now.

I think the production did a great job on both the music and the video. Rag 'n Bone Man can't just twerk through a video like Britney Spears, so they put together a clever little visual. As for "Human" here's a draft I just did. Needs a lot more work, but I have some ideas and finally, a use for phased saxophone >:) . The changes to this are a little like a song I wrote and recorded in 1995, so I played it in B concert.

Update January 20th, 2020:
I removed a lot of the phasing and added more distortion to the sax, added the bridge changes, more South African Voices and piano and redid the alto parts.
