Otis Rediohead - Creep on the Dock in the Bay (Stubborn God Productions)

So, two posts on the same must be a Monday, and a new blog. Anyway, let's get started with some lite fare, shall we.

A recent brainstorm, or was it a headache, led to this little piece of audio and video wizardry that I'm calling Otis Rediohead - Creep on the Dock in the Bay.

To be honest, as simple as it sounds, syncing Otis Redding's "Sittin' on the Dock in the Bay" with Radiohead's "Creep" was no easy matter. Sure, there are musical similarites, and certainly others have noted the shared chord structure, however there are issues in parsing these two songs. Firstly, there is no video footage of Otis performing the track, live or otherwise. Secondly, the beats have to be in time. Lastly, Creep is almost twice the length of Sittin'. Saying that, I think it came out swell, not that it has received the massive views of Nirvana meets Rick Astley, but I have faith that it will, someday.
