Sam Neill Is Getting In On The Quarantined Radiohead Covers Game
Sam Neill has thus far been a charming presence on Instagram during the coronavirus pandemic, posting pigs, poems, and a Randy Newman cover. Now the Jurassic Park actor has thrown his hat in the highly competitive field that is quarantine 2020 Radiohead covers.
John Lennon has seemingly been the most popular choice material for secluded musicians. There was the notorious Gal Gadot celebrity-friends “Imagine” cover, obviously, and Dirty Projectors and Margo Price have also taken a crack at Lennon solo material. But Radiohead is giving the Beatle some competition in this realm. Ben Gibbard covered “Fake Plastic Trees” in one his earliest webcasts, James Blake sang “No Surprises” in a livestream his own, and now Neill has delivered a reading “Creep,” the song that made Radiohead famous in the first place, on ukulele.
“I can only apologise to Tom Yorke et al for murdering I song I love,” Neill writes in the caption. “But here goes nothing.” Watch below.

I can only apologise to Tom Yorke et al for murdering I song I love. But here goes nothing. I don’t know about you , but I’m finding keeping in touch face to face on FaceTime with family and friends a great comfort and a lot fun too . I’m in Australia for the duration it seems – so staying in touch with the farm, with the family , and friends scattered around the world is really important . And having a laugh course . Separation is hard , and throwing your arms around people would be great , but unfortunately the last thing we should be doing right now. Anyway – stay well , stay in touch , stay careful, and stay optimistic !
