Is this U2? @ 04:09 pm

I'm currently feelin: curious curious

Hi. I downloaded this file, which is labelled as a U2 cover of the Radiohead song "Creep," and ... I just don't think it's U2. The voice just doesn't sound like Bono, especially in the spoken bit at the very end. Does anyone know who it really is? Thanks.

Edit: It seems to be Tears for Fears (Scroll down the page for the download).

I downloaded the exact same thing like last year. It's definitely not U2. I have no clue who it is though.
It may just be a live version of it by Radiohead. But what the hell do I know about Radiohead.

And I was so excited when I downloaded it too.

I don't think it's Radiohead, though I'm not an expert either. The best clue is probably the bit where the singer says the venue name -- we could probably figure out who has covered the song and played there -- but he goes too fast for me to understand it. "The something Exhibition Center in ?Brooklyn, Toronto or Baltimore?" is about the best I can do.

Thanks anyhow!

Could it be Tears for Fears? I did a Google search and found a post where somebody said something about "you can try to download the U2 version of Creep, but most times you'll just get Tears for Fears." But I don't really know enough about Tears for Fears to recognizer the singers voices.

I have that faux U2 track too, and I kept it because it was pretty cool. Tears For Fears, huh? I'd have to listen to it again to see if it sounds like Roland Orzibal, but color me impressed if it is!

I would agree - the voice just doesn't sound right. Unfortunately, I have no clue who it could be. Sorry!

I don't think it is Tears for Fears. I know the Cure did one. I've never heard it before, but the voice does sound a little like the guys voice. The only other person I know to have done one is Damien Rice, but that's not it.
