Is Lana Del Rey’s “Get Free” a Rip-Off of the Radiohead Song “Creep”?

Is Lana Del Rey’s “Get Free” a Rip-Off of the Radiohead Song “Creep”?

The latest “your-song-sounds-too-much-like-my-song” lawsuit involves LANA DEL REY being sued by RADIOHEAD, because they think she ripped off their 1992 hit “Creep”.

 

The Lana song in question is “Get Free”, off her album “Lust for Life” that came out last summer.  The chorus doesn’t sound anything like “Creep”, but other parts of the song are definitely similar.  (Here’s “Creep,” and here’s “Get Free“.)

 

Lana confirmed the lawsuit yesterday on Twitter.  Apparently, she agrees the songs sound similar, because she offered them part of the publishing rights.  But she says they want ALL of them.

 

Quote, “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.”

 

 

 

 

The weird part is “Creep” was ALREADY a partial rip-off of a HOLLIES song from 1974 called The Air That I Breathe.

 

They admitted they lifted parts of the song . . . settled out of court . . . and ended up giving the original songwriters some of the royalties from “Creep”.
